Assessment of the Motorola dp2400

Latest news – Motorola seem that they are churning out two way radios like they’re just candy as of late, the digital revolution has really given Motorola a new market and they are, as customary, pushing the boundaries of the two way radio marketplace. This new walkie talkie the DP2400, is full fat digital and i have used it for the few weeks it is very similar size to many other of the present 2 way radios, but included with new connection variety. The form is similar to other present walkie talkies, but i believe the price can make a massive difference to small companies and individuals, anyway here’s a incredibly rare appraisal of that two way radio.

A two way radio has to be in a position to work swiftly and efficiently. These have to be simple to work with, 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 don’t despair. The Dp2400 is totally at ease handling both analogue and digital frequencies.

But there’s much more it is able to do besides that.

The Dp2400 can even use its ‘IP Site Connect’ function to expand the aptitude of the radio via the Internet. Additionally, the ‘capacity plus’ function can use just one-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 ensure even broader fields of communication over greater areas.

There’s even an enhanced security function.

The Motorola Dp2400 comes in both VHF and UHF types.


It’s much reasonable, yet high spec, device. Recently there has been release of the Motorola dp3400, we can reasonably expect the price to drop a bit more also soon, but probably not by an incredible amount, as both models do seems to specialize in slightly different areas.

Overall, it does look like Motorola are offering a fantastic radio-based product for your money, yet again.


The design is hardy and practical; this would be the kind of 2 way radio a security guard or professional soldier might use. Its tough, square edged and no-nonsense, but it still looks contemporary and specialist. On top of this, the DP 2400’s ease of use makes the simplicity of the design an ideal marriage of model and operation.

As with most of Motorola’s types, 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 (that means you can use it in the rain, but you probably can’t take it swimming).

The audio performance of the Dp2400 is nothing short of wonderful. It even adjusts the sound levels to compensate for background noise automatically, much like the iphone.

Actually, 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 design was somewhat bulky plus 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 are not about to lose the walkie talkie (you would soon notice if you ever dropped it).

As an optional extra, you can even get a function that may interrupt an existing signal in order to deliver vital 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 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 added extras, it will surely do a lot more in addition.

There are not actually 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 mechanically. What more can you ask for?
