Latest news – Motorola seem to be turning out radios like they’re just sweets lately, the digital revolution has truly given Motorola a second wind and they really are, as standard, pushing the boundaries of the two way radio market. This latest radio the DP2400, is full fat digital and having tried it for a few weeks it’s very similar size to a lot of other of the modern two way radios, but with a different connection variety. The form is very similar to other existing 2 way radios, but i believe the price can make an enormous differentiation to small organisations and individuals, anyway here is a very rare review of the 2 way radio.
A two way radio has to be able to work quickly and effectively. They have to be uncomplicated to use, strongly made and multi-faceted enough to appeal to a variety of people. Opportunely, Motorola are very, very good at fulfilling these standards. So, with that at heart, we put the Dp2400 through its paces.
The clarity of digital audio is undeniable. But if you still prefer analogue, then do not despair. The Motorola dp2400 is completely comfortable handling both analogue and digital signals.
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 allow 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 that ‘capacity plus’ function) that works in tandem using the IP functionality to make sure even broader fields of communication over larger areas.
There’s even an enhanced security function.
The Motorola Dp2400 comes in both VHF and UHF forms.
It is a reasonably priced, yet high spec, device. Recently there has been release of that DP3400, we are able to reasonably expect the cost to drop a little more also soon, but probably not by an implausible amount, as both models do seems to focus on slightly different niches’.
Overall, it does seem like Motorola are offering an excellent radio-based product for your hard earned money, yet again.
The design is hardy and functional; this is a kind of two way radio a security guard or professional soldier might use. Its tough, rectangle edged and no-nonsense, but it really still looks contemporary and specialist. On top of this, the Motorola dp2400’s ease of use makes the simplicity of that design an ideal marriage of model and operation.
As with the majority of Motorola’s types, the Dp2400 is a robust little doohickey. The bodywork is so tightly sealed, in reality, that it is almost completely dust and sand proof and has a water protection rating of IP55 (meaning you can use it while in the rain, but you probably can’t take it snorkelling).
The audio performance of the Motorola dp2400 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 radio, 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 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 totally sure that you simply aren’t going to lose the product (you’d soon notice if you dropped it).
As an optional extra, you will even get a function that will interrupt an existing signal so they can deliver critical information without waiting for a communication terminate.
It really does seem as if Motorola have considered the lot for this two way radio. What we’ve got here is a walkie talkie 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 product, it works extremely well, is pretty much top of the line in its price range and is bang up to date technologically. What more can you ask for?
