Editorial – Motorola give the impression to be turning out two way radios like they’re candy as of late, the digital revolution has truly provided Motorola a second wind and they’re, as customary, pushing the boundaries of the two-way communication market. This new radio the Motorola dp2400, is full fat digital and i have tested it for a few weeks it’s very similar size to many other of the present 2 way radios, but with a new connection variety. The form is similar to other modern walkie talkies, but we believe the cost will make a massive difference to small firms and individuals, anyway here’s a extremely rare review of the radio.
A walkie talkie has to be in a position to work quickly and effectively. They have to be uncomplicated to work with, strongly made and multi-faceted enough to appeal to a variety of people. Opportunely, Motorola are very excellent at fulfilling these criteria. So, with that in mind, we put the Motorola dp2400 through its paces.
The clarity of digital audio is undeniable. But when you still prefer analogue, then don’t despair. The Dp2400 is totally at ease handling both analogue and digital signals.
But there’s much more it is able to do besides that.
The Dp2400 can even use its ‘IP Site Connect’ function to open out the capability of the radio via the Internet. In addition, the ‘capacity plus’ function can use an individual-site trunking system to allow over a thousand voice or data transfer-users devoid of adding any new frequencies. It could even use an (optional) ‘linked capacity plus’ feature (a multi-site version of that ‘capacity plus’ function) that works in tandem with the IP functionality to ensure even broader fields of communication over bigger areas.
There’s even an enhanced security function.
The Motorola DP 2400 can be purchased in both VHF and UHF types.
It’s much reasonably priced, yet high spec, device. Recently there has been release of the DP3400, we are able to reasonably expect the purchase price to drop a bit more as well soon, but probably not by an incredible amount, as both models do generally concentrate on slightly different niches’.
Overall, it does look like Motorola are offering a fantastic radio-based product for your money, yet again.
The design is hardy and utilitarian; this is the sort of radio a security guard or professional soldier might use. Its tough, rectangle edged and no-nonsense, but it really still looks modern and professional. Over this, the Motorola dp2400’s easy use makes the simplicity of the design a perfect marriage of model and operation.
As with most of Motorola’s designs, the Dp2400 is a robust little doohickey. The bodywork is so tightly sealed, in reality, that it’s almost entirely dust and sand proof and has a water protection rating of IP55 (meaning you can use it while in the rain, but you most likely can’t take it snorkelling).
The audio performance of the Motorola dp2400 is nothing short of spectacular. It even adjusts the levels to compensate for background noise automatically, much like the iphone.
Actually, so high performance is this walkie talkie, that it essentially meets US military standard 810 C D E F and G.
The only negative we could find was that the look was slightly bulky and also the battery was slightly heavy, however, the battery life is so good that we really don’t mind. Besides, it’s reassuring to be completely sure that you simply aren’t about to lose the radio (you’d soon notice if you ever dropped it).
As an optional extra, you can even obtain a function which will interrupt an existing signal to be able to deliver critical information without waiting for a communication finish.
It actually does seem as if Motorola have considered everything for this two way radio. What we’ve got here is a walkie talkie that is pretty close to perfection. It appears to do anything you could possibly want it to and, when ‘pimped out’ with all the optional extras, it will surely do a lot more besides.
There aren’t actually any downsides with this walkie talkie, it works awfully well, is pretty much top of the line in its value range and is bang up to date technically. What more can you ask for?
