Guess 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!
