TYT TH-9800D



Was interested in purchasing the TYT TH-9800D for summer travels. But before I but it....

I have read that the newer version of the TYT TH-9800D does not work [tx/rx] with all GRMS channels.

A very knowledgeable friend agreed with that.

THEN, i read that you can unlock the TYT in the software.

And another knowledgeable friend stated thah it will work [tx/rx] on all GMRS channels.

Can anyone clear this up for a nube before i pluck down a couple of hundred $$.

Thank you in advance

     A lot of different radios can have the MARS mod done to them through either a hardware modification or software hack. One is suppose to be a member of MARS or CAP to use an amateur radio outside of the amateur bands. The MARS mod on UHF radios just happens to allow transmission on GMRS channels. That does not mean that the modded radio is legal to use on GMRS channels because it isn't since it is not Part 95 certified. 

     A lot of people do the MARS mod and don't worry about the radio not being Part 95 certified. And as long as one is not doing anything to draw attention to themselves will never get in trouble for it.

     Radioddity even has the TYT TH-9800 unlock steps on their website. https://www.radioddity.com/blogs/all/th-9800-unlock  And yes the same procedure also works on the TH-7800 using the TH-9800 instructions and password. Use at your own discretion.
