Double the fun of digital ragchews with the TYT MD-2017 Dual Band DMR Digital Two Way Radio! The MD-2017 takes the clarity and full quieting of digital voice communications to UHF and VHF and puts both bands in one handy talkie you can take anywhere!

The TYT MD-2017 operates in analog and digital modes on 400-480MHz frequencies on UHF and 136-174MHz VHF at up to 5 watts of power. It uses Time-Division Multiple-Access (TDMA) digital technology to double the number of users on a single 12.5kHz channel.

The MD 2017 boasts 3000 channels, 10000 contacts, built-in CTCSS/DCS (analog mode only), single call, group call and all call, remote kill/stun/activate, transmit interrupt, VOX, and lone worker function. It is compatible with MOTOTRBO™ compatible, DMR Tier I and II compatible, is firmware upgradeable and is IP67 waterproof.

The TYT MD-2017 is also equipped with the same large color LCD display found on other models in the MD series. It also has the traditional keypad found on the other digital radios, and there are programmable side keys. However, the MD-2017 adds two additional programmable keys, marked P1 and P2.

The MD-2017 also has a trackball, and it's embedded front and center. This makes the MD-2017 very different indeed.

The Tytera MD-2017 dual band digital radio uses Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) Tier 2 Standard protocol. It is compatible with the popular MOTO TRBO series radios using standard encryption, as well as other makes and models of DMR supported radios. It is also compatible with any existing analog two-way radio operating on the supported UHF and VHF frequencies for easy migration to digital technology.

Includes one Tytera MD-2017 dual band digital mobile two way radio, dual band antenna, belt clip, AC charger, 2200mAh lithium-ion rechargeable battery, owner's manual and one year manufacturer warranty.

  1. Well worth the investment! review by PBHVY on 3/28/2020

    When I first received this radio, I wasn't sure I liked it. But when I wanted to take it with me everywhere, I knew it was a winner. I'd like to see a higher quality, more flexible antenna and an easier to install belt clip. But those are very minor preferences. This is every bit as well made as Mot....but costs 1/3 the price. Wish I'd known about Tyt when I was shopping for digital radios for work. Buy one!

  2. Good radio review by Nate on 3/11/2019

    Love the tyt MD 2017

  3. Yes I will review by Nate on 3/1/2018

    I love the radio but I just think they should've made a better battery pack that last upto 8 hours or more

  4. Great radio review by Nicholas440 on 2/17/2018

    The TYT 2017 is a great radio, there have been some complaints about the sma antenna post breaking but I believe that's been corrected in the latest models. The track ball tuning is frustrating at times, but it can be locked so you don't accidentally change channels. I would like to see better battery life because the 2017 only has about a 10 to 12 hour battery time so a spare battery is recommended. I'm not sure why it uses the battery so fast even in standby mode, but it does. Overall I'm happy with it and the audio reports are very good. The people at Buy Two way radios, are very knowledgeable and helpful, they can answer any questions you have and if they don't have the answer they will find it for you. You can be sure you're getting the latest firmware, and not last years models that haven't sold and that says a lot about service and support to me.
