This guy has a decent writeup already done but you are talking UHF. The UHF are based on the EPH style board layout. The board examples in the file won't correlate at all at a component level. The LPU/EPU/EPH series did away with the lower header pin layout in exchange for a systems board in the front cover and the CPU was moved to the center RX board area. The good thing is the side pins are all still the same so audio and mic and power can be tapped there just the same.
More info here.

You will need to pull a COR signal somehow and often the RX LED is used for that but there are other locations.

Why not just buy a BK yellow box repeater?

He copied it because he's a spammer who is trying to get past the 5 post moderation rule.

He copies other peoples posts which make them look legit when the Moderation Queue is worked.

He's been banned now.
