Editorial – Motorola look that they are churning out radios like they’re just candy these days, the digital revolution has truly given Motorola a new market and they really are, as standard, pushing the boundaries of this 2 way radio marketplace. This contemporary radio the Dp 2400, is full fat digital and having used it for a few weeks it is very similar size to a lot of other of the existing radios, but having a new connection variety. The form is similar to other existing radios, but we deem the price can make a huge difference to small firms and individuals, anyway here is a extremely rare assessment of that two way radio.
A two way radio has to be able to work promptly and effectively. They have to be straightforward 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 at heart, we put the Dp2400 through its paces.
The clarity of digital audio is indisputable. But when you still prefer analogue, then do not despair. The Motorola dp2400 is totally at ease handling both analogue and digital signals.
But there’s much more it is able to do besides that.
The DP 2400 can even use its ‘IP Site Connect’ function to open out the aptitude of the radio via the Internet. Additionally, 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 can 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 DP 2400 is available in both VHF and UHF forms.
It’s much reasonable, yet high spec, device. Considering the release of that Motorola dp3400, we are able to reasonably expect the price to drop a little 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 fantastic radio-based product for your hard earned money, yet again.
The look is hardy and functional; this will be the kind of walkie talkie a security guard or professional soldier might use. Its tough, square edged and no-nonsense, but it really still looks modern and professional. Over this, the Dp2400’s ease of use makes the simplicity of the design a perfect marriage of model and operation.
As with the vast majority of Motorola’s designs, the Motorola dp2400 is a robust little doohickey. The bodywork is so tightly sealed, in fact, that it is almost completely dust and sand proof and features a water protection rating of IP55 (meaning you can use it while in the rain, but you almost certainly can’t take it swimming).
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.
In reality, so high performance is this radio, that it essentially 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 absolutely sure that you aren’t about to lose the product (you would soon notice if you ever dropped it).
As an optional extra, you are able to even get a function that may interrupt an existing signal in order to deliver critical information without waiting for a communication terminate.
It really does seem as if Motorola have considered the lot for this 2 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 besides.
There aren’t actually any downsides with this 2 way radio, it works tremendously well, is pretty much top of the line in its price range and is bang up to date mechanically. What more can you ask for?
