Editors note – Motorola appear that they are turning out two way radios like they’re candy nowadays, the digital revolution has really given Motorola a second wind and they are, as standard, pushing the boundaries of this walkie talkie marketplace. This recent walkie talkie the Dp 2400, is full fat digital and i have used it for a few weeks it is very comparable size to many other of the current radios, but with a new connection sort. The form is very like other modern 2 way radios, but i deem the price can make a huge differentiation to small organisations and individuals, anyway here is a very rare appraisal of the 2 way radio.
A two way radio has to be in a position to work quickly and effectively. They have to be straightforward to use, strongly designed and multi-faceted enough to appeal to a variety of people. Luckily, 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 indisputable. But when you still prefer analogue, then don’t despair. The Dp2400 is totally comfortable handling both analogue and digital signals.
But there’s a lot more it is able to do besides that.
The DP 2400 can even use its ‘IP Site Connect’ function to increase the capability 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 could even use an (optional) ‘linked capacity plus’ feature (a multi-site version of that ‘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 also comes in both VHF and UHF types.
It’s much affordable, 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 specialize in slightly different areas.
Overall, it does look like Motorola are offering a good radio-based product for your hard earned money, yet again.
The look is hardy and practical; this is the sort of 2 way radio a security guard or professional soldier might use. Its tough, square edged and no-nonsense, however it still looks modern and professional. On top of this, the Dp2400’s ease of use makes the simplicity of the design an ideal marriage of model and operation.
Like nearly all of Motorola’s designs, the Motorola dp2400 is a robust little doohickey. The bodywork is so tightly sealed, in reality, that it’s almost wholly dust and sand proof and features a water protection rating of IP55 (that means you can use it while in the rain, but you most likely can’t take it snorkelling).
The audio performance of the Motorola dp2400 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 two way radio, that it actually meets US military standard 810 C D E F and G.
A common negative we could find was that the look 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 would soon notice if you dropped it).
As an optional extra, you can even get a function that will interrupt an existing signal in order to deliver critical information without waiting for a communication terminate.
It really does seem as if Motorola have thought of the lot for this two way radio. What we’ve got here is a walkie talkie that is pretty close to perfection. It appears to do anything you could probably want it to and, when ‘pimped out’ with all the optional extras, it will surely do a lot more in addition.
There aren’t actually any downsides with this product, it works tremendously 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?
