Setting time and saving/recalling station memories on the XHDATA D-808?

Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Sorin, who writes:

Hello Thomas,
I’ve read with interest your blog and inputs about the XHDATA radio.
Now since yesterday I own such a radio, and I’ve noticed it has aspects that are superbly resolved, but I miss a complete Instruction Manual. The pdf you have there (the same as the printed one that came with my radio) isn’t describing some matters, I will highlight just those I’ve confronted:

How do you set the local time? The manual stops at saying how to switch from Automatic (I guess from the unreliable RDS clock) to Manual. What buttons are to be pressed further to set the time ?

How do you save radio stations beyond the 10 pcs on Page 00? Ho do you go further from Page 00 to some other ? Pressing further the Page button doesn’t change anything.

How do you call saved stations from other pages that Page 00?

best regards,
Sorin

Thank you for your question, Sorin. I’m letting a friend borrow my D-808 so, unfortunately, don’t have it handy to confirm this for you. My hope is that an SWLing Post reader can help.

Please comment if you can help Sorin with these D-808 functions!

Spread the radio love

    1- How do you set the local time ? when OFF, press ‘Time set’ 2sec, now enter time.
    2- How do you save radio stations beyond the 10 pcs on Page 00?
    Press ‘Page’ and then a key, say 5, now you are on 50-59
    3-? same as 2

      I don’t even own a XHDATA D-808, but this is very good information in case I happen to come into one. Thank you very much for your response to the problem adi. Nice to know people like you are out there.
