Hi, Daniel here

I just went on the absolute newbie last week and the team let me use one of the Baofeng 888S radios. I ended up buying one, but now I see is not recommended. Is there a work around for this drive? Using the one I have? I'm afraid I will have no time to find one of the recommended options.

Cheers!

Hi @Daniel Rodas that is correct. These radios can only be programmed with the help of a USB cable and software with laptop, hence we do not recommend buying them, unless you can find the programming cable and download the software called CHIRP. 
 

The easiest thing is to buy a Baofeng UV5R or Crony MT777 as these have a programming display and we have tutorials for them. 
For this drive and because you brought it forward, Vanessa can give you a spare radio.
