Review of the DP2400

Update – Motorola seem that they are churning out two way radios like they are candy these days, the digital revolution has really provided Motorola a second wind and it seems, as customary, pushing the boundaries of this two-way communication market. This new two way radio the Dp 2400, is full fat digital and having tried it for the few weeks it’s very similar size to many other of the modern 2 way radios, but with a new connection variety. The shape is similar to other present radios, but we deem the price can make a huge difference to small firms and individuals, anyway here is a incredibly rare review of that two way radio.

A 2 way radio has to be in a position to work swiftly and effectively. These have to be simple to work with, strongly made and multi-faceted enough to appeal to a variety of people. Opportunely, Motorola are very excellent at fulfilling these criteria. So, with that in mind, 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 Dp2400 is completely at ease handling both analogue and digital signals.

But there’s much more it can do besides that.

The Dp2400 can even use its ‘IP Site Connect’ function to open out the aptitude of the device 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 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 greater distances.

There’s even an enhanced security function.

The Motorola Dp2400 can be purchased in both VHF and UHF types.


It is a reasonably priced, yet high spec, device. Considering the release of that Motorola dp3400, we can 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 appear to be Motorola are offering a good radio-based product for your hard earned money, yet again.


The design is hardy and practical; this will be the kind of radio a security guard or professional soldier might use. Its tough, square edged and no-nonsense, but it still looks modern and professional. Over this, the Motorola dp2400’s easy use makes the simplicity of the design an ideal marriage of model and operation.

As with nearly all of Motorola’s designs, the Dp2400 is a tough little doohickey. The bodywork is so tightly sealed, in fact, that it is almost entirely dust and sand proof and has a water protection rating of IP55 (meaning you can use it in the rain, but you almost certainly can’t take it snorkelling).

The audio performance of the Motorola dp2400 is nothing short of spectacular. It even adjusts the levels to compensate for background noise automatically, much like the iphone.

In reality, so high performance is this 2 way 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 absolutely sure that you aren’t about to lose the radio (you’d soon notice in case you dropped it).

As an optional extra, you are able to even get a function that will interrupt an existing signal so they can deliver critical information without waiting for a communication terminate.


It actually does seem as if Motorola have thought of the lot for this walkie talkie. What we’ve got here is a 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 optional extras, it will surely do a lot more besides.

There aren’t really any downsides with this two way radio, it works extremely 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?
