Latest news – Motorola seem that they are turning out radios like they are candy lately, the digital revolution has truly given Motorola a new market and they are, as customary, pushing the boundaries of this two way radio marketplace. This new 2 way radio the DP2400, is full fat digital and i have used it for a few weeks it’s very similar size to numerous other of the modern 2 way radios, but included with different connection type. The form is very similar to other present two way radios, but we think the cost will make a huge diversity to small businesses and individuals, anyway here is a very rare assessment of that walkie talkie.
A 2 way radio has to be able to work quickly and efficiently. These have to be straightforward to work with, robustly made and multi-faceted enough to appeal to a variety of people. Fortunately, Motorola are very excellent at fulfilling these standards. So, with that at heart, we put the 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 comfortable handling both analogue and digital signals.
But there’s much more it is able to do besides that.
The Motorola dp2400 can even use its ‘IP Site Connect’ function to open out the aptitude of the radio via the Internet. Furthermore, the ‘capacity plus’ function can use a single-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 the ‘capacity plus’ function) that works in tandem with 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 types.
It is a affordable, yet high spec, device. Considering the release of that Dp 3400, we can reasonably expect the price to drop a bit more also soon, but probably not by an implausible amount, as both models do seems to concentrate on slightly different areas.
Overall, it does look like Motorola are offering a superb radio-based product for your hard earned money, yet again.
The design is hardy and practical; this is a kind of two way radio a security guard or professional soldier might use. Its tough, rectangle edged and no-nonsense, however it still looks modern and specialist. On top of this, the DP 2400’s ease of use makes the simplicity of that design a perfect marriage of model and operation.
Like nearly all of Motorola’s types, the Dp2400 is a tough little doohickey. The bodywork is so tightly sealed, actually, that it’s almost completely dust and sand proof and features a water protection rating of IP55 (that means feel free to use it in the rain, but you most likely can’t take it snorkelling).
The audio performance of the DP 2400 is nothing short of spectacular. It even adjusts the sound levels to compensate for background noise automatically, much like the iphone.
Actually, so high performance is this walkie talkie, 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 look was slightly bulky and the battery was a little heavy, however, the battery life is so good that we really don’t mind. Besides, it’s reassuring to be completely sure that you simply are not going to lose the radio (you would soon notice in case you dropped it).
As an optional extra, you will even get a function that will interrupt an existing signal in order to deliver critical information without waiting for a message finish.
It really does seem as if Motorola have thought of everything for this walkie talkie. What we’ve got here is a 2 way radio 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 radio, it works particularly well, is pretty much top of the line in its value range and is bang up to date technologically. What more can you ask for?
