Editors note – Motorola appear to be turning out radios like they are candy as of late, the digital revolution has actually given Motorola a second wind and they are, as usual, pushing the boundaries of this walkie talkie marketplace. This recent walkie talkie the DP2400, is full fat digital and i have tested it for the few weeks it’s very related size to numerous other of the modern walkie talkies, but included with new connection type. The shape is very similar to other present walkie talkies, but we believe the price can make a tremendous diversity to small organisations and individuals, anyway here is a incredibly rare assessment of that two way radio.
A 2 way radio has to be in a position to work swiftly and efficiently. These have to be uncomplicated to use, strongly made and multi-faceted enough to appeal to many different people. Luckily, Motorola are very, very good 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 DP 2400 is completely comfortable handling both analogue and digital frequencies.
But there’s much more it can do besides that.
The DP 2400 can even use its ‘IP Site Connect’ function to increase the aptitude of the device via the Internet. Additionally, the ‘capacity plus’ function can use an individual-site trunking system to allow 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 make sure even broader fields of communication over larger areas.
There’s even an enhanced security function.
The Motorola DP 2400 can be purchased in both VHF and UHF forms.
It is a reasonable, yet high spec, device. With the 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 implausible amount, as both models do seems to focus on slightly different areas.
Overall, it does seem like Motorola are offering a superb radio-based product for your hard earned money, yet again.
The design is hardy and utilitarian; this will be the kind of 2 way radio a security guard or professional soldier might use. Its tough, rectangle edged and no-nonsense, but it still looks contemporary and professional. On top of this, the Motorola dp2400’s ease of use makes the simplicity of that design a perfect marriage of model and operation.
As with nearly all of Motorola’s radios, the DP 2400 is a robust little doohickey. The bodywork is so tightly sealed, in reality, that it is almost entirely dust and sand proof and has a water protection rating of IP55 (that means you can use it while in the rain, but you almost certainly can’t take it swimming).
The audio performance of the Motorola dp2400 is nothing short of wonderful. It even adjusts the levels to compensate for background noise automatically, much like the iphone.
Actually, so high performance is this 2 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 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 aren’t going to lose the radio (you’d soon notice in case you dropped it).
As an optional extra, you can even get a function that may interrupt an existing signal to be able to deliver vital information without waiting for a message finish.
It really does seem as if Motorola have considered the lot for this 2 way radio. What we’ve got here is a 2 way radio that is pretty close to perfection. It seems to do anything you could possibly 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 two way radio, it works particularly well, is pretty much top of the line in its price range and is bang up to date technically. What more can you ask for?
