    some problems in SW of the TYT and ....


    The stock antenna on my MD-2017 is JUNK. Not sure if all are like this or I just got a defective one. The company I purchased it from is sending me a Nagoya replacement for free.

    by TYT :

    Did anybody worried about the roll- ball will easy defected?

    Do not worry, after using some time, the ball will be dirty and because of some dust or tiny items,the rolling function also not so smoothly, just like HOME key of Iphone.

    But changing this is very easy. Just Remove it and change new one,which will not make the waterproof lost its efficacy.
    If meet anything do not understand, please see the video:

    it's not good this..... this is a NEW radioooooooo !!!! hi .... NO COMMENT :-(

    TYT also released a new firmware update for the MD-2017 to accommodate the code plug conversion and fix a few bugs.

    The new firmware resolves the following:

    · Resolved an audio issue in repeater mode, when the same frequency is on both A and B sides and one is on time slot 1 and the other is on time slot 2

    · Under the Zone setting, the same channel can now be assigned for both A and B sides

    · The MD-2017 can open and use the data from the MD-380

    · In Digital Mode, the Monitor function can monitor the conversations in different group and single calls

    TYT assured us the new firmware would be included with the radio when it arrives.

    possibile this FIX in the new FW 1.16 ??

    TYT MD-2017 Dual Band DMR and MFJ-849 Digital SWR Watt Meter Reviews by K6UDA

    “Curiosity got the best of me. I finally ordered a DMR handheld radio and picked the new TYT MD-2017 UHF/VHF DMR Analog unit. I’ve never used a DMR radio before and wanted to see if an average guy could program it and get on the air.How does DMR compare to D-Dstar? I also got a new digital SWR /Power meter from MFJ just in time for Field Day. This is the MFJ-849 Digital SWR/Watt Meter. What do I think of it?”

    for game..... HOW TO CREATE YOUR LOGO IN COLOUR when power on the radio :

    create with paint logo 160X128 a 8 Bit 256 colors in BMP

    I create the image in Photoshop, and save it to a PNG file. Then bring the PNG file into Microsoft Paint and save it as a 256 color BMP

    IMPORTANT: Ensure that each time you upload a new BMP file, rename the file to something different than the one used before. Otherwise, the radio seems to ignore the upload.

    Using Microsoft word to built the callsign fonts, screenshot to Paint..

    What program do you use to upload the BMP? It looks like it's not the CPS and the installation folder of the CPS does not contain other programs. I can create the BMP myself, but uploading is another thing...

    DMR Download software.
    The default programmer (UpgradeDownload.exe) that comes with the firmware published by TYT.
