    Hi, the MD-2017 was only listed for pre-order on our site about a week ago. We expect to receive them in our warehouse within the next couple of weeks.
    Although we did have the MD-9600 listed for pre-order for quite a while, we took it off pre-order status for a bit due to numerous delays from TYT. We just put it back on pre-order after TYT informed us it should ship sometime this month. Whether that actually happens or not depends entirely on the manufacturer.
    If it's any consolation, we're waiting right along with you.

    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?

  • Sean, WB4UR

    estou no aguardo dualband tyt 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.

    There is no word yet from TYT as of the date of this reply. As soon as we receive an update, we will post it here. Subscribe to our blog to get it first!

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

  • Rick

    Hi David, TYT has not provided an official release date or price point as yet. As soon as they do, we will post an update.

  • david brown

    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.

  • joeym

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

  • joeym

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

  • Kevin N8VNR

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