Review of the Dp 2400

Latest news – Motorola seem to be getting out two way radios like they’re just candy these days, the digital revolution has really provided Motorola a second wind and they’re, as usual, pushing the boundaries of the radio market. This new radio the Motorola dp2400, is full fat digital and i have used it for a few weeks it is very comparable size to numerous other of the current radios, but with a new connection sort. The shape is similar to other existing two way radios, but we think the purchase price will make a massive differentiation to small companies and individuals, anyway here’s a incredibly rare review of the walkie talkie.

A walkie talkie has to be able to work promptly and efficiently. These have to be simple to use, strongly designed and multi-faceted enough to appeal to many different users. Fortunately, Motorola are very excellent at fulfilling these criteria. So, with that at heart, we put the Dp2400 through its paces.


The clarity of digital audio is undeniable. But if you continue to prefer analogue, then don’t despair. The Dp2400 is totally at ease handling both analogue and digital signals.

But there’s a lot more it can do besides that.

The DP 2400 can even use its ‘IP Site Connect’ function to open out the aptitude of the device via the Internet. Furthermore, the ‘capacity plus’ function can use an individual-site trunking system to enable over a thousand voice or data transfer-users without adding any new frequencies. It can even use an (optional) ‘linked capacity plus’ feature (a multi-site version of the ‘capacity plus’ function) that works in tandem using the IP functionality to ensure even broader fields of communication over bigger distances.

There’s even an enhanced security function.

The Motorola Dp2400 is available in both VHF and UHF types.


It is a reasonably priced, yet high spec, device. With the release of the DP3400, we are able to reasonably expect the cost to drop a little more as well soon, but probably not by an implausible amount, as both models do seems to concentrate on slightly different areas.

Overall, it does appear to be Motorola are offering a good radio-based product for your hard earned money, yet again.


The design is hardy and functional; this will be the sort of two way radio a security guard or professional soldier might use. Its tough, square edged and no-nonsense, but it still looks modern and specialist. On top of this, the Dp2400’s ease of use makes the simplicity of that design a perfect marriage of model and operation.

Like the majority of Motorola’s types, the Motorola dp2400 is a robust little doohickey. The bodywork is so tightly sealed, in reality, that it is almost completely dust and sand proof and includes a water protection rating of IP55 (which means you can use it in the rain, but you almost certainly can’t take it swimming).

The audio performance of this DP 2400 is nothing short of spectacular. It even adjusts the sound levels to compensate for background noise automatically, much like the iphone.

In reality, so high performance is this walkie talkie, that it essentially meets US military standard 810 C D E F and G.

A common negative we could find was that the design was slightly bulky plus the battery was a little heavy, however, the battery life is so good that we really don’t mind. Besides, it’s reassuring to be totally sure that you simply aren’t going to lose the radio (you would soon notice in case you dropped it).

As an optional extra, you will even obtain a function which will interrupt an existing signal to be able to deliver vital information without waiting for a message come to an end.


It really does seem as if Motorola have considered everything for this walkie talkie. What we’ve got here is a radio that is pretty close to perfection. It seems to do everything you could possibly want it to and, when ‘pimped out’ with all the optional extras, it will surely do a lot more in addition.

There are not really any downsides with this radio, it works awfully well, is pretty much top of the line in its value range and is bang up to date technologically. What more can you ask for?
