Posted by Two Way Direct on 16th Mar 2023

The Motorola Mag One BPR40 two way radio is one of the most popular handhelds on the market. With up to 16 channels and 4-5 watts of power, these radios set the standard for a compact, durable product, which is usable by most industries. This model offers several versions including:

1.) Motorola Mag One BPR40 8 Channel UHF

2.) Motorola Mag One BPR40 16 Channel UHF

3.) Motorola Mag One BPR40 16 Channel VHF

4.) Motorola Mag One BPR40 8 Channel VHF

5.)  Motorola Mag One BPR40D 16 Channel UHF Digital Radio

Not sure which model you own? Simply pop off the battery on the back of your handheld(s). On the metallic surface you will see a sticker with the words “Model Number” on it. Simply go to and type in the model number in the search bar, where it will locate the handheld model, which you are using.


Because there are many versions of the Mag One radio, there are also different versions of accessories. One accessory, which is a popular option, is the radio antenna. It is important to maintain these accessories due to the fact that they help to provide coverage for your radios. If they are bent or pulled or broken in any way, this can affect how your handhelds communicate with each other. So, having some extras on hand would never be a bad idea in the case that you need to switch one out.


In order to change out your old antenna, follow these steps:

1.) Turn off your radio

2.) Unscrew the old antenna

3.) Screw on the new antenna

4.) Turn on radio

5.) Test signal

In choosing an antenna for your BPR40, it is important to understand the term “compatibility.” For those using a UHF model, a UHF antenna must be purchased. Similarly, those using a VHF model should purchase a VHF antenna.

It is always important to care for your radios and their accessories properly so that you do not sacrifice quality and coverage for your communications.
