Ever wondered where your BF-888s comes from

Post by Handyman735 »

Maybe you have all seen this video by now so forgive me if thats so but thought some may not have seen it so here it is.

There are also videos of Puxing, TYT factory's from these same people.

So, now you see where your BF-888s and verious others were born, maybe some of the workers made the very radio your using ?

They have come a long way since the little red book went.

One thing I like about the BF888s is that the insides of these radios are so easy to solder wires to and from, remove and add things for projects although they are very poor radios but with some modifications and improvements they could make good donor UHF boards for various projects. I don't suppose anybody has a detailed circuit diagram schematic for one of these radios?

Seen it before but watched it again, tell you what they must sell millions of them to have such a workforce. Seems a superb efficient factory thou eh !

I know they make replacement batteries for the Motorola GP300 radios and other GP series batteries and other Motorola replacement parts. I bought a few replacement batteries from China in the past for the Motorola GP300s for 11.99
