Many thanks, Dave! I’ve ordered the D-808, so I appreciate getting a sneak peek at the manual.

I did note one thing that sets the D-808 apart from the AR-1780: the D-808 is powered by one 18650 lithium battery.

My D-808 was shipped a few days ago, but I don’t expect it to arrive for at least a couple of weeks. Anyone else order the D-808?

    Hi folks; Got my D-808 from hlhl2014 on eBay for $118.00 Cdn. Took only 13 days for arrival. Not much in the manual about memory features and mine seem to have a problem: When scanning stations in all bands, when it finds a station, it sits there, and will not progress to the next signal. Anyone else have this problem. Tried the pin reset button a few times and various squelch settings including Fast/Slow/Stop settings but nothing will make it continue to scan like my Grundig Satallit or the Radiwow R-108. All else seems to be fine! Suggestions? Tns! Craig/Vancouver BC cls4554@shaw.ca

      Don’t press/hold the arrow keys to scan — use the [SW] key — long hold to use ATS.

      You can also just scan the individual bands with the same [SW] key by double tapping fast.

    Hey, did anyone of you have this problem? I somehow managed to make the FREQ button not work anymore (i.e. pressing it does not allow me to enter frequencies anymore). I thought it coincided with disabling the BEEP “feature”, but turning it back on doesn’t change anything.

    How can someone order this radio in the USA ? Does not appear to be available anyplace to order since about January 1st. Aliexpress will not ship the order to the USA, and it’s not appearing on eBay either for USA customers. Any reason why ?

    I have just received my xhdata d-808 and am very happy with it.
    Bought via Amazon and it arrived with-in 48hrs and very well packaged.
    At the price you can get for now I would dare to say it is a bargain.
    It will be interesting to see how it holds up to a few years use as my Sony ICF-SW1 has (although recently it has had its old capacitors replaced).
    That being said, a big thumbs-up so far.

    I recently ordered one of these but it wii probably not arrive until early February. Could someone post a brief tutorial on the use of the memories. I see little to nothing on this subject in the manual.

    Does its RDS function shows only mentioned PS, DATE, RT and PTY when on FM band?
    Or is there also PI code (useful for FM DX)?
