[arm-allstar] Where to get Suitable USB FOBS

This is the current FOB that I would recommend for those modifying them on
their own.


This link is also on the FOB mod howto pages at hamvoip.org

I also have a friend who is modifying them and putting them in a nice
package with a 25 PIN D connector wired the same as a DMK URI. He is also
selling modified 888's. He does a very nice job. Contact him direct for
more info -  ggianios at verizon.net

Also take note that most of the boards now availble use the CM108B or the
CM189B chips. Although the specs are basically the same between these and
the former non B chips the audio levels are lower on the B versions. So you
will probably have to make level adjustments when using them.

As for mounting the board close to the Pi - I do not recommend it. Test we
have done show problems with stray digital noise with cards mounted over or
under the Pi. Also there is no USB on the Pi GPIO pins so you would have to
loop back to the USB connector in any event.
