DCRS had the privilege of providing a MOTOTRBO Digital Radio System for the event consisting of –

  • 2 repeaters supplying 4 channels
  • 115 MOTOTRBO DP4400 hand portables
  • 8 WAVE PTX POC hand portables
  • Technical personal on site for the

Alan Heap, operations manager at OSB Events, commented: “The service we receive from DCRS is always first rate and we have now used them for several years, having previously tried several other less reliable radio suppliers. Their prices are always competitive and added to the excellent service with planning, booking and on-site support during the weekend events this always makes them our go to company that we would heartily recommend.”


Motorola dp4400

The DP4000e Series is designed for the skilled professional who refuses to compromise. With high performance integrated voice and data, and advanced features for efficient operation, these next-generation radios deliver complete connectivity to your organisation. Bluetooth audio lets you communicate without wires, there is support for trunking options and legacy analogue radio capabilities to give the customer the flexibility and adaptability required.

The series features a prominent emergency button with Transmit Interrupt to clear the channel. The radio is tested to military standards and is waterproof to IP68. TIA4950 certified models are available for use in hazardous locations where flammable or explosive materials are present.

The new technology offers up to 28 hours of battery life for 3-shift working and an improved receiver boosts range by up to 8% on previous models.

Please note if you want the Location Tracking, Man down or Wi-fi options, they come in the DP4401e radios.


Push to talk (PTT) is no longer only for two-way radios. Group communication can now include those who rely on smartphones and broadband devices as well as two-way radios. WAVE PTX is a network independent multimedia communication subscription service that instantly connects your team at the push of a button.

WAVE PTX POC is great for triathlon course marshals and back up services as it provides secure wide area communications.

Combine the broad coverage of a Europe-wide 3G/4G network with the ease of two-way radio communications. The WAVE radio will automatically switch to the strongest network available to ensure reliable communications and will seamlessly roam as the user moves between countries. Manage talk groups and subscriptions in real time. Increase coverage, connections, and productivity without expanding infrastructure.

Keep employees connected and accountable with crisp, clear audio and location tracking in a rugged, compact form factor. Maximise efficiency with single-button push-to-talk and long battery life. And improve focus without a distracting screen to get in the way.

Forget building or maintaining a costly radio infrastructure. Get your team up and running quickly by deploying Europe-wide* push-to-talk without the need for costly or time-consuming spectrum licensing or manual programming. You can even use the WAVE radio with your current compatible two-way radio systems and smartphones.
