Episode 99: Debut of the TYT MD-2017 Dual Band DMR HT

TYT MD-2017 Dual Band DMR Handheld Transceiver

Well……that only took about 4 years!  I started into DMR in 2013, but we’ve had repeaters in Texas since 2012 – and this is the first dual band DMR radio I’ve ever seen.  So far, I like it.

The TYT MD-2017 has some minor annoyances, like most Chinese radios do, but they aren’t that big of a deal.  The radio does exactly what it is supposed to do – it transmits and receives on VHF and UHF for for DMR and analog.

The programming cable is different, and the software is different, so the codeplugs are also different – different from the earlier TYT DMR HTs.  But they are similar enough where I think we will see the MD380Tools gurus with a new hack for this radio very soon.  I sure hope so.
