  • Introducing TYT DMR digital radio bundles!

    Not long ago, amateur radio hobbyists traditionally operated in analog mode. Then the digital age arrived, and it opened up a whole new mode of operation for hams. Initially, few amateurs experimented with digital technology. Of course, there was a learning curve, but it was primarily due to cost. Going digital was expensive.

    Then, everything changed. The growing popularity of the DMR standard and the introduction of low priced import DMR radios lowered the barrier to entry. Digital radio on the amateur bands began to thrive. Now, more amateur enthusiasts are going digital, either on the side or all the way.

    Yet for many hams, the world of DMR is still unfamiliar territory, and for some, the migration from analog to digital operation can be a challenge. There are questions. How do I get started in digital radio? What equipment do I need? How much does a basic setup cost? How can I get into DMR at minimal cost?

    Well, just in case you were wondering, we're glad you asked, because we now have the answer:

    DMR Digital Radio Bundles!

    Buy Two Way Radios just created digital radio starter kits exclusively for hams, and at very affordable prices. These bundle kits are made for the ham who wants to go digital but either doesn't know where to begin or simply wants to avoid the hassle of shopping around and just Get On The Air. Two bundles are currently available.

    TYT-MD-9600 Base Station KitTYT MD-9600 DMR Digital Ham Radio Base Station Kit
    The Digital DMR Ham Radio Base Station Kit takes the popular TYT MD-9600 dual bander and turns it into a bona fide digital base station. The complete bundle contains everything needed for desktop operation in your ham shack, including the TYT MD-9600 Dual Band Base/Mobile DMR Radio, a TH-1380 30A Switching Power Supply, a Tram 1185 dual band UHF/VHF mag mount antenna, an MD-9600 programming cable, and software. This bundle was briefly offered as part of a promotion in 2017 and was incredibly popular. Due to popular demand, we decided to make it a permanent bundle and offer it at a substantial discount. Price: $339.99.

    TYT Digital Ham Shack Mega BundleTYT Digital Ham Shack Mega Bundle
    The TYT Digital Ham Shack Mega Bundle is exactly what the name implies. Many hams would like to go all digital, but some have questions about which products to pair. this is the same bundle as the base station kit, but with the addition of an MD-UV380 dual band DMR portable handheld. Simply put, it's basically an instant DMR ham shack kit. The complete Mega bundle includes a TYT MD-9600 Dual Band Base/Mobile DMR Radio, a TYT MD-UV380 Dual Band DMR Digital Handheld Radio, a TYT-TH-1380 30A Switching Power Supply, a Tram 1185 Dual Band Magnet Antenna, programming cables for both radios, and software for each model. As the product description says, "Why settle for half a ham shack when you can go digital all the way? With the TYT Digital Ham Shack Mega Bundle, you can!" it's also a great deal. Price: $449.99

    No doubt both of these kits offer popular ham radios at very good buys. But it's not just about saving money. These are great kits for a new ham who just wants to get started in DMR and for an old ham who wants to upgrade from analog to digital radio and experiment with something new. They are also good, economical way for an amateur radio club to offer DMR training and events to its members, such as digital operations on field days.
