Consider upgrading to a digital radio for more coverage
If you still need additional range, we suggest looking at a Motorola digital radio.
Migrating from analog radio transmission to digital gives you a ~20% range bump as well as ~40% battery life bump, and static free communications. Radio Depot can always program your existing BPR40 radios to work with any of the previous listed digital radios on select analog channels.
