BF-888s With Beat shift.

Post by thelad » 10 Jul 2018, 19:56

Trying to find a BF888s or copy with the Beat shift ("scrambler").
Have bought some from Amazon and none of them work with Beat shift. Any ideas where to buy?

Bit hit and miss as there is no indication on the box or the radio if it is Beat Shift enabled..
All I can suggest is make a list of Amazon sellers and purchase from one at a time, if no Beat Shift return the radio and try the next seller..

The way I'd go about it is to message sellers on ebay and ask if the radios they're selling have beat shift.

Yep already have and they do not reply or do not have a clue what they are talking about! I think i have found some of the older type on wish.com so going to give them a try.

Thanks Dazza. I notice Radioddity doing some now with "scrambler". Will the GT work with the 888s do you know?
