Update – Motorola give the impression to be churning out two way radios like they are candy nowadays, the digital revolution has actually provided Motorola a new market and it seems, as standard, pushing the boundaries of this walkie talkie market. This recent radio the DP2400, is full fat digital and i have used it for a few weeks it is very related size to a lot of other of the present 2 way radios, but included with different connection variety. The shape is very like other modern radios, but i deem the price can make a tremendous difference to small companies and individuals, anyway here is a extremely rare assessment of the two way radio.
A 2 way radio has to be able to work swiftly and effectively. It has to be straightforward to use, robustly 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 when you continue to prefer analogue, then don’t despair. The DP 2400 is totally at ease handling both analogue and digital signals.
But there’s a lot more it can do besides that.
The Dp2400 can even use its ‘IP Site Connect’ function to expand the aptitude of the device via the Internet. In addition, the ‘capacity plus’ function can use just one-site trunking system to enable 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 with the IP functionality to make sure even broader fields of communication over larger distances.
There’s even an enhanced security function.
The Motorola DP 2400 also comes in both VHF and UHF forms.
It is a reasonable, yet high spec, device. Recently there has been release of the Dp 3400, we are able to reasonably expect the price to drop a little more also soon, but probably not by an incredible amount, as both models do generally focus 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 design is hardy and utilitarian; this would be the sort of 2 way radio a security guard or professional soldier might use. Its tough, rectangle edged and no-nonsense, however it still looks contemporary and professional. Over this, the Motorola dp2400’s easy use makes the simplicity of the design a perfect marriage of model and operation.
Like nearly all of Motorola’s designs, the Motorola dp2400 is a tough little doohickey. The bodywork is so tightly sealed, in fact, that it’s almost completely dust and sand proof and features a water protection rating of IP55 (meaning feel free to use it in the rain, but you almost certainly can’t take it snorkelling).
The audio performance of the DP 2400 is nothing short of spectacular. It even adjusts the levels to compensate for background noise automatically, much like the iphone.
In fact, so high performance is this 2 way radio, that it actually meets US military standard 810 C D E F and G.
Really the only negative we could find was that the look was somewhat bulky plus 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 just aren’t going to lose the radio (you would soon notice if you dropped it).
As an optional extra, you can even get a function that may interrupt an existing signal so they can deliver critical information without waiting for a message come to an end.
It actually 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 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 in addition.
There aren’t really any downsides with this radio, it works awfully 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?
