TYT MD-2017 Dual Band DMR HT
TYT’s first attempt at a dual band DMR HT wasn’t 100% successful, but if you remember correctly, neither was the MD-380 when it first dropped.
The MD-2017 is still being sought-after and used by many Amateurs. Some common problems (about a 8-10% failure rate) are the antenna connector, a bad display screen, and buttons on the radio that do not work. I have seen maybe 3 radios with the bad display, and only 1 with buttons not working.
TYT is pretty good about addressing these issues. In this video I show how to change out the bad antenna port, and then we do a firmware upgrade on the radio. Both actions are fairly straight-forward. Watch the video to learn more.
