DP2400 hands-on assessment

Update – Motorola appear to be turning out two way radios like they’re just sweets nowadays, the digital revolution has in fact provided Motorola a second wind and they are, as standard, pushing the boundaries of the 2 way radio market. This latest walkie talkie the Dp 2400, is full fat digital and having tried it for the few weeks it is very similar size to a lot of other of the modern two way radios, but with a new connection sort. The form is very like other current walkie talkies, but we deem the purchase price can make a massive diversity to small companies and individuals, anyway here is a incredibly rare review of that 2 way radio.

A 2 way radio has to be in a position to work promptly and effectively. It has to be uncomplicated to use, strongly made and multi-faceted enough to appeal to a variety of people. Fortunately, Motorola are very, very good at fulfilling these standards. So, with that in mind, we put the DP 2400 through its paces.


The clarity of digital audio is indisputable. But if you continue to prefer analogue, then don’t despair. The DP 2400 is completely comfortable handling both analogue and digital frequencies.

But there’s a lot more it is able to do besides that.

The Dp2400 can even use its ‘IP Site Connect’ function to expand the capability of the device via the Internet. Furthermore, the ‘capacity plus’ function can use just one-site trunking system to enable over a thousand voice or data transfer-users without adding any new frequencies. It could even use an (optional) ‘linked capacity plus’ feature (a multi-site version of the ‘capacity plus’ function) that works in tandem with the IP functionality to ensure even broader fields of communication over bigger distances.

There’s even an enhanced security function.

The Motorola DP 2400 also comes in both VHF and UHF forms.


It is a affordable, yet high spec, device. Recently there has been release of the Dp 3400, we are able to reasonably expect the price to drop a bit more as well soon, but probably not by an incredible amount, as both models do seems to specialize in slightly different niches’.

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


The look is hardy and utilitarian; this is the sort of walkie talkie a security guard or professional soldier might use. Its tough, square edged and no-nonsense, however it still looks modern and specialist. Over this, the Motorola dp2400’s easy use makes the simplicity of that design a perfect marriage of model and operation.

As with most of Motorola’s designs, the Motorola dp2400 is a tough little doohickey. The bodywork is so tightly sealed, in reality, that it’s almost completely dust and sand proof and features a water protection rating of IP55 (meaning you can use it while in the rain, but you almost certainly can’t take it swimming).

The audio performance of this Dp2400 is nothing short of spectacular. It even adjusts the levels to compensate for background noise automatically, much like the iphone.

In reality, so high performance is this two way radio, 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 absolutely sure that you are not 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 in order to deliver critical information without waiting for a message finish.


It actually does seem as if Motorola have considered everything for this radio. What we’ve got here is a two way radio that is pretty close to perfection. It appears 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 besides.

There aren’t actually any downsides with this radio, it works particularly well, is pretty much top of the line in its price range and is bang up to date mechanically. What more can you ask for?
