What to make of the modern DP2400

Editorial – Motorola appear to be getting out two way radios like they are sweets as of late, the digital revolution has in fact provided Motorola a new market and they are, as usual, pushing the boundaries of this 2 way radio marketplace. This latest radio the DP2400, is full fat digital and i have used it for a few weeks it’s very comparable size to many other of the existing radios, but with a new connection variety. The shape is very similar to other present two way radios, but i think the cost will make a huge differentiation to small companies and individuals, anyway here’s a extremely rare review of the 2 way radio.

A two way radio has to be able to work quickly and effectively. It has to be uncomplicated to use, robustly made and multi-faceted enough to appeal to many different people. Luckily, Motorola are very excellent at fulfilling these standards. So, with that in mind, we put the Motorola dp2400 through its paces.


The clarity of digital audio is undeniable. But if you continue to prefer analogue, then don’t despair. The Motorola dp2400 is totally comfortable 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 expand the aptitude of the device via the Internet. Furthermore, the ‘capacity plus’ function can use just one-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 the ‘capacity plus’ function) that works in tandem using the IP functionality to ensure even broader fields of communication over greater areas.

There’s even an enhanced security function.

The Motorola Dp2400 can be purchased in both VHF and UHF types.


It is a affordable, yet high spec, device. Considering the release of the Dp 3400, we can reasonably expect the 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 areas.

Overall, it does look like Motorola are offering a fantastic radio-based product for your hard earned 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, rectangle edged and no-nonsense, but it really still looks contemporary and professional. Over this, the Motorola dp2400’s easy use makes the simplicity of that design an ideal marriage of model and operation.

Like most of Motorola’s designs, the DP 2400 is a robust little doohickey. The bodywork is so tightly sealed, actually, that it is almost wholly dust and sand proof and includes a water protection rating of IP55 (meaning you can use it in the rain, but you probably can’t take it snorkelling).

The audio performance of this DP 2400 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 radio, that it in fact meets US military standard 810 C D E F and G.

Really the only negative we could find was that the design was somewhat 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 aren’t about to lose the radio (you’d soon notice if you dropped it).

As an optional extra, you can even obtain a function that will interrupt an existing signal in order to deliver vital information without waiting for a communication finish.


It really does seem as if Motorola have considered everything for this 2 way radio. What we’ve got here is a 2 way radio that is pretty close to perfection. It appears to do anything you could probably want it to and, when ‘pimped out’ with all the added extras, it will surely do a lot more besides.

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