New TYT MD-UV380 with M17 mod

This listing is for a dual band (2m/70cm) TYT MD-UV380 with the M17 mod applied. Availability is subject to upstream stock.

US customers only, please, others may email (“support [at] tarxvf [dot] tech”) for options.

The modification itself is a one-time experimental modification that enables the transmission and reception of the M17 digital protocol when using the OpenRTX replacement firmware. The only side effect with normal TYT firmware is that the VOX feature may be held open at some sensitivity levels.

Please understand that M17 support is experimental, currently in development, and comes with no guarantees. This hardware modification voids any extant warranties on your radio.

If after this service you experience any issues, I will be happy to troubleshoot the radio with you, but cannot provide any guarantees beyond the assurance that I only send fully working radios that meet the best functionality tests available.

Due to the extremely delicate nature of the modification, please be extraordinarily careful opening up the radio yourself.

Timeline:
  • You place an order by clicking the big purple button and paying using Stripe.
  • I purchase a radio, modify it following the official OpenRTX/M17 guide, and perform functionality checks with OpenRTX in FM and M17 modes. I’ll also install the latest OpenRTX firmware for your convenience.
  • I send it to you!

Total time from payment to delivery can be as high as three weeks under high demand. I often keep a very small stock of radios on-hand pre-modified, so if business is slow the best case time is very quick.
