Should I upgrade from a Legacy Radio to a BKR Series Radio?

Legacy radios have been a staple in the communication industry for many years. Models like the DPH, DPHx, DPH-CMD, GPH, GPH-CMD, and EPH, have served their purpose well. However, as technology advances and parts become discontinued, it's important to consider upgrading to a BKR Series Radio. In this blog post, we will discuss the reasons why upgrading to a BKR Series Radio is a wise decision.

End of Life Parts

One of the main reasons to upgrade from a legacy radio is the availability of parts. As legacy radios age, the parts required for repair become harder to find. Manufacturers eventually discontinue these parts, making it increasingly difficult to guarantee a repair for your legacy radio. By upgrading to a BKR Series Radio, you ensure that you have access to readily available parts for any future repairs.

Minimize Repair Costs

Repairing a legacy radio can be costly, especially when parts are scarce. In many cases, the cost of repairing a legacy radio can be comparable to or even exceed the cost of purchasing a new BKR Series Radio. By investing in a new radio, you can avoid the uncertainty and potential high costs associated with repairing a legacy radio.

Enhanced Features

The BKR Series Radio offers a range of features that surpass those of legacy radios. These new radios are equipped with advanced technology, improved audio quality, enhanced durability, and increased battery life. Upgrading to a BKR Series Radio will provide you with a more reliable and efficient communication tool.

Future-Proof Investment

Technology is constantly evolving, and it's important to stay ahead of the curve. By upgrading to a BKR Series Radio, you are making a future-proof investment. These radios are designed to adapt to changing communication needs and can be easily upgraded with new features and functionalities as they become available.


Upgrading from a legacy radio to a BKR Series Radio is a smart decision. With the discontinuation of parts for legacy radios and the potential high costs of repairs, investing in a new radio is a more practical and cost-effective solution. Additionally, the enhanced features and future-proof nature of the BKR Series Radio make it a reliable and efficient communication tool.  Don't let your communication system become outdated; upgrade to a BKR Series Radio today.
