BF-888s With Beat shift.

Postby thelad » Wed Jul 11, 2018 6:33 am

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?

Beat shift should not be a scrambler, but something to move a Birdie if it's in an inconvenient place. A beat shift very slightly moves the radios IF & can, or should be able, to be activated channel by channel.

Edited to add, the Beat shift will (or could) make the audio from a radio with Beat Shift activated slightly distorted as the signal will be off channel. But that depends upon the receive radio. If the other radio has a wide bandwidth, then no distortion will be evident.
It is also worth noting, that moving frequencies can be a stupid thing to do, as you are moving towards another channel, so you will be in effect operating within the spectrum of two channels at once.
