    We are pleased to introduce the latest addition to the Motorola Solutions portfolio - the MOTOTRBO R2 handset!

    An everyday workhorse, the MOTOTRBO R2 is a durable handset with an excellent battery life - up to 26.5hrs! As the predecessor to the ever-popular DP1400, the R2 features a redesigned sleek, ergonomic form factor. The R2 is available in either VHF or UHF, and can operate in either analogue or digital mode, making it an ideal alternative to the GP340 or CP040 analogue-only handsets. 

    The R2 offers a simplified user experience - simply turn the radio on, set the volume and operating channel using the rotary controls on the top of the radio, and talk using the large, tactile PTT button. 

    The radio is as light as it is tough, engineered to survive the harsh conditions of everyday business. The R2 weighs less than 290g with a high-capacity battery, and endured Motorola Solutions' rigorous Accelerated Life Testing program which simulates up to 5 years of continuous use. 

    What's more, with MOTOTRBO R2 you can enjoy excellent audio quality, thanks to MOTOTRBO's SINC+ feature, bringing you advanced algorithms to single out and eliminate disruptive background noise. 

    If you have 2-pin audio accessories that work with your older DP1400 or CP040 handsets, then these will still be compatible with your R2 handsets.

    Yes! This radio is a full-power unit which works on licensed spectrum. Here’s a few important points to remember:

    • Licencing is really easy and cost effective, so don’t be put off
    • You only licence the frequency (channel) your radios use, not the number of radios or handsets
    • If you’re buying radios to use outside of the UK, you will need to get a licence from your country’s regulatory body

    Buy a licence online:

    You can choose from one of the following two options to buy a licence online. Once you place your order, we’ll apply for the licence for you, which is valid for 5 years. Ofcom will then contact you directly in 5 years’ time to arrange the renewal.

    Remember: you don’t need a licence per radio, just a licence per fleet of radios. One licence will usually provide enough cover for your company or site (or you as an individual if you’re buying for private use)

    I already have a licence:

    If you already have radios, you should already have a licence. If you’d like your new radios to work with your existing fleet, you need to send us:

    • A copy of your existing Ofcom licence
    • For digital radios:
      • Let us know which frequencies are in which channel
      • Which colour code you use
      • Which digital group ID you use
    • For analogue radios:
      • Let us know which frequencies are in which channel
      • What CTCSS/TPL/DPL tone you use

    Alternatively, you can send us a programming file from one of your existing radios, or even post us one of your existing handsets so that we can make sure we match it correctly.

    Note that we accept no responsibility for radios which do not work due to incorrectly provided information. We’ll program your radios for free upon order, but if they don’t work and need re-programming there will be a £10 + VAT fee per unit.


    If you need help, feel free to call our team of friendly experts and we’ll guide you through.
