    Motorola DP 3400 Walkie Talkie Review 

    So to resume my run of articles on this website, I’ve decided to share one of our favorite posts this week. I was hesitant to include it to the blog because I really did not wish to offend the initial author, but I hope he/she is happy that I enjoyed reading their work and planned to share it with my readers.

    We are grateful to be able to review the Motorola DP3400 2 way radio, this has been on the market for a while, but over the last few years you would have seen this radio used in many shopping centres, office buildings and venues across the UK.

    THE SPECS

    There’s quite a lot that makes the DP 3400 more than just another two-way radio. For a start, the DP3400 employs a single-site trunking solution that can allow over a thousand users to share information, and even data, with each other, without adding new frequencies.

    The DP 3400 Walkie Talkie also comes complete with an emergency button, this button, when pushed, automatically alerts the supervisor (or dispatcher) to any possible trouble without the user having to speak even a single word. Such a safety feature works in tandem with the DP 3400’s ‘Emergency Signalling’ capability, a function that will send an emergency signal to a pre-determined person or group.

    The DP 3400 is capable of signal migration for both analogue and digital signals; it easily (and handily) combines traditional radio technology with cutting edge digital methods.
    The radio comes in both UHF (4w) and VHF (5w).

    This model also comes with a cradle that charges your battery for you, it is an excellent charger, representing an efficient design and complete user-friendliness.

    THE PRICE

    This is a neat little gizmo, but Motorola know that. The price of £350 might seem a little steep at first, but if its professional quality you’re after, then you should be prepared to pay a professional price.

    THE PERFORMANCE

    Despite having a decidedly utilitarian feel overall, the outer design actually benefits from a softer, ‘sanded down’ finish. With smoother edges and a more contemporary feel, this two-way radio doesn’t seem as Spartan as a more military or security-centric model might. It provides all the same functions, but the end result is a little bit more aesthetically pleasing and somehow more reassuring. In short, this model will be better for business.

    The brightly lit buttons are also very useful if you’re using the radio at night. It’s a Tricolour LED, so the lights appear modern and pleasing.

    This is a very tough little device, with a sturdy outer casing and what appears to be shock proofing all the way around. The body of this radio is so well sealed that not even a particle of dust or grit can penetrate it. It can even be fully submerged in water for 30 minutes without succumbing to permanent damage.

    The belt clip is sturdy and holds the radio to your belt so well, that you never fear it will fall off. You also get a dust cover, which protects the open accessory port in the event that you aren’t using any accessories. This is a welcome feature that is always nice to see. The addition of programmable side buttons is also a very welcome feature of the DP 3400.

    The DP 3400 also benefits greatly from a very long battery life, which is ideal for outdoor work.

    THE VERDICT

    This is a marvellous radio. It is suitable for any number of events/functions. The sound comes through clearly, the large microphone/speaker setup allows for ease of use and the entire package is exceptionally well made. The DP 3400 is smart, user friendly and very high quality.

    The only knock I’d give it is that the battery, although excellently designed, is somewhat heavy. That’s it.

    However, I still think that the aforementioned episode of ‘Spaced’ would have gone a lot more smoothly if they’d invested in a couple of these little beauties.

    The impressive Motorola DP3400 radio can be found on this website 2wayradionline.co.uk

    Caribbean holiday Tobago – the home of booty-shaking – makes skinny Miley Cyrus look positively. 

    There is a passionate debate on a Caribbean radio station as our taxi makes its way around the winding roads deep in the heart of Tobagos forest.

    communication devices with auditory scanningIts an outrage, a voice stirs with emotion.
    An absolute affront to the Caribbean people and everything we hold dear.
    And the subject at the centre of this impassioned phone-in?
    Er, Miley Cyrus and her ever-twerking backside.
    You see, while the UK has been transfixed by the starlets alarmingly unsexy bottom jerking, weve been uninformed about the origin of this worldwide dance phenomenon.

    Twerking has been in the Caribbean for many years, the radio presenter affirms.
    It is a dance done by big-bottomed ladies loving life at the carnival – it is part of our dance heritage.
    And during my stay at Tobagos magnificent Magdalena Grand Beach and Golf Resort, I get to see how real women twerk at an evenings entertainment from a troupe of fantastic local dancers.
    Eat your heart out, Miley!

    So incredible, passionate, vivid and frenzied is their dancing that their joy and spirit intoxicates the guests.
    And dressed in their tribal robes, theres not a bare cheek in sight (thank goodness!).
    It is that same infectious abandon that the sun-drenched island of Tobago fills its many visitors with every year.
    You cannot help but be charmed by the laid-back lifestyle of the fun-loving locals. It is the ultimate holiday destination for relaxing and unwinding.

    Big fish: One of the locals Michael Melford
    In fact, chilling out is such an integral part of everyday life that they even have a word for it – liming.
    This essentially means sitting down and hanging out with your pals, with an obligatory beer in hand.
    Liming can happen anywhere. Even, as I discovered to my delight, in the middle of the ocean.
    While tranquilly floating on one of Tobagos most beautiful untapped tourist points – the idyllic lagoon Nylon Pools – our glass-bottomed boat encountered some local revellers on their own vessel.

    As the dulcet tones of Shaggy (who else?) blared out from their craft, it only took a matter of minutes before a barbecue was lit and beers were being passed across the waters.
    The visit to Nylon Pools truly was one of the trip highlights.
    The crystal-clear water is shallow enough to stand in yet you are floating in the middle of the sea with land barely visible.
    Fans of snorkelling will be thrilled to know this is an ideal place to do some exploring with a variety of fish and even turtles zipping through the waves beneath you.

    There was also a stunning ocean view from the balcony of our room at the Magdalena Grand.
    The impressive building, right in the middle of a 750-acre plantation, is a stones throw away from the twinkling blue sea… and a sandy beach which is famous for being a nesting place for turtles.
    With such a breathtaking view, plus a number of outstanding restaurants, bars, a spa, gym, tennis courts and even a practice diving pool, you could happily top up your tan without leaving the grounds.

    But the island has a surprising amount to offer so you must venture out to experience the incredible food and magnificent scenery.
    One place I would not have expected to wind up was inside the lush green of the Tobagan rainforest (yes, it does in fact rain in Tobago, albeit rarely).
    The wild beauty of the forest was amazing.
    Tumbling waterfalls, massive trees and, of course, the animal inhabitants were all there to greet us.

    Our guide was particularly keen to introduce us to some of the less pleasant creatures. Lets just say I was more a fan of the exotic birds than the spiders!
    Heaven: A waterfall in Tobago Debra Wiseberg
    I returned from this adventure muddy, soaked and exhausted but thrilled to have experienced something truly amazing.
    Another great experience (especially in the Caribbean sunshine) is the chance to paddleboard at charming beach retreat Pigeon Point.

    At first its tricky trying to balance on the board, but I quickly got the hang of it and had an hour paddling over the calm water. And enjoyed a cocktail under a palm tree afterwards, of course.
    For foodies a trip to the famous Tobago Cocoa Estate allows you to see the incredible process that creates bar after bar of delicious chocolate. And, yes, you are allowed to taste some.
    With neighbouring Trinidad just a short plane hop away, we popped over to experience their cultural delights.

    Again, twerking was a central feature with locals keen to boast about their world-famous carnival which grips the nation for a wild week every February.
    I was lucky enough to be see inside the costume storage unit for a peek at the dazzling array of outlandish bikini creations the brave women wear at the carnival.
    No matter what shape or size, nothing stops the Caribbean women from taking part, shedding their inhibitions, along with their clothes.

    As it was a few months away from carnival, I didnt quite feel up to stripping down to my underwear but was allowed to try on the incredibly heavy feathered headpieces that women wear for the celebrations.
    After watching footage of the amazing parades, I certainly understood what that radio presenter had been getting so worked up over Mileys appropriation of the twerk.
    And lets just say Beyonce was underselling it when she coined the phrase bootylicious.

    These women were seriously proud to be shaking and shimmying their fabulous figures around as they revelled in the happiest dance youll ever see.
    It made skinny Miley look positively second-rate in comparison.
    Im hopeful for a return visit during carnival time to get a twerking lesson from the country where it all began.
    Travel fileWhen to go: The island enjoys tropical weather all year round, averaging around 30C.

    High season is January to March when accommodation prices soar, especially in February for the annual Carnival.
    Off-peak months are April to June and October to December.
    Do try: Stand-up paddleboarding – the latest watersports craze is fun and easy to learn. From $60 (37) for a one-hour lesson at Pigeon Point. standuppaddletobago.com.
    Good to know: Water temperatures at a constant mid-20C means Tobago is perfect for snorkelling and diving to explore the rich sealife.

    Book it: BA Holidays offers seven nights at the four-star Magdalena Grand Beach & Golf Resort from 737pp based on two sharing a Deluxe Ocean Front room, including breakfast and flights departing Gatwick on selected dates in May and June, via St Lucia to Tobago.
