I haven't purchased any of these FOBS in several months. But, the last I 
got were not potted. They're available from many sources:

There were a few more changes we wanted to get in and some last minute 
testing so that has delayed it a bit. This version will have 
substantially improved USB reliability and many other updates.

with that problem thinking it is the BBB. It does not seem to be getting 
fixed very fast. While this has nothing to do with the operation of 
Allstar many users seem to depend on it to tell if their node is working. 
Also if you were not listed there other nodes would not know you existed 
to be able to connect to you however they could just use the node number 
if they knew what it was.

there are currently any reliable sources of FOBS that are not potted so 
the modes could be made?
