TYT TH-8600 Dual band 2m/70cm Mobile Transceiver


Add to Cart:

The new TH-8600 from TYT is a compact mobile transceiver with a 25 Watt punch on 2 metres and a solid 20 Watt on 70 cm. Measuring only 110 x 140 x 42 cm it won't take up much space inside your car or truck, and could even be mounted on a motorcycle or ATV.

This super little transceiver has 200 programmable memory channels, 1750 Hz burst tone for repeater access and CTCSS/DCS encoding and decoding. The multi-function microphone makes mobile operating a breeze - five of the buttons can be re-programmed for your own favourite functions using the programming software.

Included with the radio is a programming cable allowing it to be programmed from a Windows PC, along with a CD containing programming software and drivers for Windows versions from XP to Windows 10 (other operating systems and computers are not supported, sorry).
