If anyone is interested in using a Baofeng BF-888S as a node radio for
use at home or portable or mobile but you don't have the time,
patience, or knowledge to modify one I have a solution which could get
you on Allstar at a very reasonable price. You assemble a complete
Allstar node with everything you need (Pi and accessories, USB FOB, and
radio) to get on the air for the cost of a DMK-URI, about $80.
My name is Devan Phillis I live in South Zanesville, Ohio and I have put
together a plan to buy the radios and the other hardware required to
modify them for use with Allstar.
I can supply a modified sound FOB, a modified Baofeng BF-888S or both as
a package. I will do all the necessary modifications including
programming the radios and testing the units for proper operation. The
BF-888S is a UHF 1W radio that can be programmed anywhere in the 420-450
amateur band. It makes a very nice "around the neighborhood" node. The
only other things that would be needed to complete your node is a
Raspberry Pi 2 or 3 with a wall wart and case and another wall wart to
power the BF-888S.
I also am modifying sound fobs to suit your radio whatever it may be.
The FOB could be supplied with just leads for you to wire to a connector
or radio of your choice or if you specify a connector and pin-out I can
wire it for you.

devan at kd8mst.org <mailto:devan at kd8mst.org> and I will answer any
