Guess and win a TYT MD-2017 Dual Band DMR radio!

This contest is now closed for entries. The radios arrived, we have a winner and the winner will be announced in episode #114!
Contest update: The MD-2017 is here!

MD-2017.jpgGuess the actual arrival date for a chance to win a new TYT MD-2017 radio or Two Way Radio Show T-Shirt! Send us your best guess of the date when you think the MD-2017 will arrive at our warehouse at Buy Two Way Radios and if your guess is correct or the closest within seven (7) days of the arrival date, you could win a FREE TYT MD-2017 Dual Band DMR digital Two Way Radio. The winner with the second closest guess will get a FREE Two Way Radio Show T-shirt, valued at $10. If multiple correct entries are received, a drawing will be held among all correct entries to determine the winners.

Why are we doing this?
In 2016 TYT announced the MD-9600, their first digital mobile radio. This was big news, and anticipation was high. TYT kept delaying the release, and now, over a year later, we are still waiting for the MD-9600 to show up on the dock at our warehouse.

A few months ago we announced a new dual band digital handheld two way radio coming from TYT, the MD-2017. In episode #111 of The Two Way Radio Show Podcast, we discussed some of the features of the MD-2017 and a speculated on a possible arrival date based on the limited specs available from the manufacturer. Bacause of our experience with the MD-9600, naturally we are a bit hesitant to mention a firm date for the arrival of the MD-2017.

So during the show (about 6:30 into the episode), we came up with an idea. Rather than set expectations with speculative dates that TYT may or may not ever meet, why not have some fun with it and make it into a contest? So we did!

Official Contest Rules
  • 1. One entry per person.
  • 2. Enter the date you think the MD-2017 will arrive at our warehouse at Buy Two Way Radios. Note: this is not the date TYT says it will ship to the US, but the date we actually receive it.
  • 3. E-mail your entry to show@buytwowayradios.com or post it in the comments for Episode #111 of The Two Way Radio Show Podcast.
  • 4. Entry must include Full name, a valid e-mail address and call sign to verify single entry per person rule. Entries without all three items for verification will be considered invalid.
  • 5. The entry with the date closest to arrival within seven days wins an MD-2017 radio.
  • 6. The entry second closest to the arrival date wins a T-Shirt.
  • 7. If multiple entries are received with the same date, the winners will be determined by random drawing of all correct entries.
  • 8. Due to international restrictions, the contest is open to residents of the US only.
  • 9. Winners will be announced on The Two Way Radio Show Podcast and notified by e-mail after close of contest.
  • 10. Contest ends April 21, 2017 at 11:59 PM EDT or when the radio arrives at Buy Two Way Radios from TYT, whichever comes first.
Note: Decisions of the judges are final.
