TYT’s newest addition to their analog radio line is the TH-8600, which is a full-color screen dual band mini-mobile radio. Outputting 25-watts on VHF and 20-watts on UHF, and with its compact size, this radio should be a good addition to any go-kit or compact car.
You need a radio for your motorcyle or off-road vehicle but the typical mobile just won’t do the job. It’s too bulky and heavy to attach to your ATV or balance on your bike, and it simply won’t fit in such a small space. You need a two way transceiver that is reliable, rugged, and capable of instant on-air communications, yet small and light enough to fit your fun machine. You need the TYT TH-8600, the Dual Band Mini Mobile Two Way Radio from Tytera!
The TH-8600 is a powerful dual band, dual display and dual standby transceiver with 20 watts of power on 400-470MHz UHF and up to 25 watts on 136-174MHz VHF frequencies. It has 200 programmable channels and four programmable function keys so you can maximize flexibility and minimize distraction while you operate RX/TX at the wheel.
The TH8600 features CTCSS and DSC encode/decode, DTMF encoding/decoding, priority channel scanning, and dual band reception. It also features 2Tone/5Tone decoding and encoding, remote kill/stun/activate and a 1750Hz burst tone.
Let’s not forget the color LCD display, because the TH-8600 has one. Best of all, this mini-mobile is IP67 dust and waterproof, which means it’s not only rugged enough to go off-road, it’s submersible in up to one meter of water! A hand mic is included, and it’s also made to be waterproof.
With all these options, one thing is clear. The TYT TH-8600 was made for QUAD and motorcycle action. It’s perfect for almost any compact on or off-road vehicle. Now you can get it for yours.
The Tytera TH-8600 comes with hand microphone, mobile mounting bracket, mobile power cord, an owner’s manual and a one year manufacturer warranty from Tytera.
