Please add the add ANYTONE NSTIG-8R to the supported devices. I have an .IMG file for a BAOFENG, but am having a heck of a time figuring out how to manually type in the 100+ frequencies into the OEM software for the NSTIG-8R. None of the options match! Basically I have a very nice looking paperweight. Please help.

Any word on progress here? Are all the Anytone 8R variants the same firmware? I'll volunteer to test on my NSTIG-8R

I've started poking around to add support for the NSTIG8R. I would consider it halfway done at this point, with two one-line tweaks:

_file_ident = "INSTIG8R" 
_ranges = [(0x0000, 0x4000),]

This will allow you to download an image, edit the memories/settings and re-upload it.

The second half is going to be harder. Re-using the TERMIN8R code means there are many details that need to be corrected for various missing features. And the architecture of the driver does not make this easy since many of the option fields are hard-coded.

Not sure where to go with this next?
