Yes. They are programmable to either wideband or narrowband on a per channel basis.

Best regards.

    In response to Steven's kind post, we have seen this, usually only in older BPR40 radios. An experienced programmer will recognize the issue during programming. I would not let this dissuade you from programming a BPR40 to narrowband (as mandated by the FCC). The fix is inexpensive and most shops will take care of it upon recognizing it has happened.

Yes they are. It is done by software. However, if you go from wide band to narrowband, you may have poor rx sensitivity. This is because the narrowband ceramic filter is bad and needs to be changed. Very common problem.

We have 6 Mag one BPR40 radio's all of a sudden you can't hear anything in the ear pieces.


Very strange! Assuming no programming has changed: check that all earpieces are tight into the radio. Unplug, check for audio without an earpiece and replug into radio. Make certain your batteries are FRESH (less than 1 year old) and fully charged. I am assuming you are using earpieces approved for the Motorola radio. Many speakers do not work and several earpieces are not designed well. Stay away from the auction site cheap ones. You get what you pay for, including failures. For several audio jacks to fail at once would be very unusual. Try a new earpiece. I suspect earpiece failure more than anything. All tests after this require checking programming and/or taking the radio apart.

Narrowband or wideband


The answer to your question depends on the radio model. Some radios have the capability when being programmed to have wide- or narrowband designated by channel. An example would be current model Motorola business/commercial radios such as the CP200.

Radios produced in the early 2000s were sometimes manufacturered in just one type of channel spacing. In these radios the entire radio is either wideband or narrowband.

In radios produced prior to 2000, most all were wideband only.

Best regards.

My magone BPR40 radio isn't sending when PTT is pushed. It is receiving fine. Any suggestions?


A couple of thoughts:
1) Check the mic hole and see if it is covered or clogged with debris.
2) Does your PTT button seem hard or the opposite, mushy? You could have an internal PTT issue. The PTT is a common failure part on 2-way radios. Feel around for the 'sweet' spot and see if you can make a simple or partial transmission, or if it will even momentarily open up the receiver on the other unit. If so, your radio is in need of repair. It would likely need a new internal PTT. (At most repair centers where the BPR40 is repaired the flat rate repair currently are around $69 for the BPR40)
3) Has any reprogramming been recently done on the radio? If so, double check the programming to be sure your PL/DPL code is set the same as your other radio.\
4) Check your battery. Trade batteries with the other unit and see if the problem changes. It takes more energy to transmit than to receive.

Best regards.

What model mobile motorola radios and motorola HT1000 portables are narrowband capable?


Most Motorola portables manufactured during the past five years or so are capable of being programmed for narrowband operation. A definite exception is the Saber which is strictly a wideband radio.

The narrowband-capable versions of the HT1000 have a model number ending in "DN." Some of the previous models ending in "CN" may or may not be narrowband-capable.
