You'll forgive me if I'm a bit skeptical given the MD-9600 hasn't started shipping yet.

Yeah--I second what Kevin N8VNR says---Im still waiting on the md-9600

I agree--this looks cool but I am waiting for the md-9600 as well

I have a md 390 and love it. is this bull or the real thing...if the real thing I want one yesterday 73's

Have you an update on when yet this radio will be sold? Other than March? Also a price would be nice to know as well.

Any updates as far as pricing or availability date for the MD-2017?

I'll still wait until a finished product is actually shipping and has been tested in the real world, but considering that TYT actually has produced a working DMR radio before (and they have a lot better reputation for build quality than certain other cheap Chinese HT brands), I'd expect TYT to actually get this one right. At least the engineers at TYT know what they are trying to accomplish, which is more than can be said for the company behind the last debacle.

estou no aguardo dualband tyt 2017.

Well here it is May. Have you any news on the md 2017 handheld yet? Sure can't hardly wait to find out when you all will get it in or when they will ship it..

Very Interesting. Would like to get a hold of one :) Looks Good :) Looking to get a Mobile, as well. 73s de WB4UR

Well it is beginning of June and your site still says pre-order. Has this or the MD-9600 actually started shipping? Anyone tried these radios yet?
