Announcing the Tytera MD-9600 DMR Digital Mobile Radio!

AVAILABLE SUMMER 2016!

Tytera-MD-9600.jpgTytera shook the world of digital radio in 2015 with the introduction of the MD-380, a portable handheld capable of both DMR and analog operation at an analog radio price.

Digital radios were outrageously expensive, and were priced out of the hands of many.

Then the MD-380 came along. It changed everything. For the first time, DMR was truly available to the masses, so to speak. Amateur radio operators on a Baofeng budget could experiment within the digital realm without spending hundreds of dollars on digital equipment, and because the UHF version was Part 90 type accepted for commercial use, small businesses could afford to keep up with their competitors and migrate to digital without the exhorbitant cost. The MD-380 was a game changer, and turned Tytera into a respected brand in the DMR marketplace almost overnight.

Now they are about to do it again. Get ready for the Tytera TYT MD-9600 Digital Mobile Radio!

Yes, that's right, the long-awaited announcement is here. Tytera has introduced a new mobile two way radio capable of operation in both digital and analog modes.

According to Tytera, the MD-9600 operates on 400-480MHz frequencies at up to 45 watts (UHF model) or 136-174MHz VHF at up to 50 watts (VHF model). As a DMR radio, It uses Time Division Multiple Access(TDMA) technology and is compatible with MotoTRBO Tier I and II.

The TYT MD 9600 boasts 1000 channels and 250 zones with 16 channels for each zone. Features include Private Call, Group Call, All Call, a lone worker mode, ANI function, encryption, short text messages, CTCSS/DCS encode and decode, power save mode, low power alarm, an emergency alarm and VOX capability. The console features a color LCD display and four programmable function keys. The hand mic also has four programmable keys, in addition to the two built-in LEDs and full DTMF keypad.

The MD-9600 is also quite versatile. it's not only PC programmable, it's firmware upgradeable as well, a flexibility most other portable and mobile transceivers lack.

The expected release date is sometime in 2016. No price point has yet been set or announced, but as soon as we have pricing, the MD-9600 will be available for pre-order at Buy Two Way Radios. For more specs, download the Tytera MD-9600 product sheet.

    From another dealer, I understand that there will be three models of this radio. There will be a UHF and a VHF single band, dual mode (Analog/DMR). There will also be a dual band (2 meter/70 cm) dual mode (Analog/DMR) available.

    It would be great if TYT commented on its release of the TYT DM9600, or is this going to be a white elephant of a radio, quite annoying that it has been so long from its initial advertised release

    Like many others, I'm anxiously awaiting the release of this radio. Setting a target release date for a radio that's still in the design phase is tricky business. I work in radio design and I fully understand the frustration of doing your best to iron out all known bugs rather than prematurely pushing the product out the door and having to deal with the fallout later. Rest assured, just as you would like to get your hands on a TYT-9600, the company would like to start selling the product ASAP. Good things come to those who wait !

    Thanks for the information Rick. We at least now know a little of what is going on with this radio.

    TYT experienced several delays due to technical and firmware issues. The last we heard from them before the Chinese New Year was availability in March 2017. However, because of previously missed target dates, we hesitated to make that official on our site in case this date is also missed. As soon as we have a date we can verify, we will announce it. Stay tuned!

    We understand the frustration. We're waiting right along with you. TYT recently told us availability is now March 2017. Hopefully, it will arrive by then.

    The last word we've received is early to mid-March 2017. TYT delayed release several times for quality control. They want to make sure it is ready before launch.

  • It would be nice if the dealer would tell us IF this radio is ever going to be available, and if it is, what is holding it up. Is it waiting on FCC approval? Is it waiting on programming software, or is there some other problem with it? At this rate, the radio will be obsolete, before we get our hands on it.

    Any word on the availability date, and is there any chance this will be a dual band DMR rig? Check the linked photo, UHF and VHF both on the display, plus there's a 'Band' button on the front panel.

    Does it have a removable head? If not I will not be getting one. I will get another CS800.

    anyone who is bashing the md-380 is just jealous because we can talk to the same people that the high end Motorola users can--Ive heard so many md-380s on the air and they all sound just as good as ANYTHING else out there and they have taken over the DMR world!!!!
