OK TYT released updated firmware and Programming software and now all is GOOD on the MD 9600.

A lil note: While the new software appears to import MD2017 codeplugs, when I wrote mine to the 9600, the radio is frozen. It won't transmit and the controls are frozen. I went back to one of my original test codeplugs (less information) and all works fine. That codeplug was coded using the 9600 software.

And today 8.31.2017 TYT released another firmware update for the MD9600 radio. This is version 3.29 replacing the 3.28 version which was released to fix the radios that were shipped not working.

The old programming software did NOT work, the old firmware the radio shipped with did NOT work. Since then they came out with new programming software (went from 1.12 to 1.18) and new firmware 3.28 was the first one that worked and now 3.29 is out. Works as I updated to 3.29 this morning. Waiting for the 100K contacts thing if they can even do that on the 9600 with the display being so small.

Does the dual band TYT MD-9600 have simultaneous receive? What about cross band repeat?

That's too bad. I can't fit it in the car and I need crossband repeat around the house. TYT is coming out with some nice stuff but they need to add a Ham or two to their engineering and design staff.

The 9800 has that. The 9600 does not. If you can give up DMR, go with the 9800.
