Thank you for the tip, Mike! Since I’m not a fan of sharing credit card information over email, I would encourage you to make the purchase through JayCar’s US website.
I just discovered that Ham Radio Outlet has cut the price of the excellent SDRplay RSPduo by $50 as a holiday special. If you’ve been considering the RSPduo, I would encourage you to jump on this deal. Click here to check out our review of the RSPduo.

Just to let you and and your readers know that the AR1780 has had a price drop – NZ$99 and AU$89 at Jaycar.
That is a great price for the AR-1780! Thanks for sharing, David!

The Retekess V115 (A.K.A. Tivdio V-115 & Audiomax SRW-710S) price has been lowered to $19.99 US shipped on Amazon.com.
Click here to read our previous reviews of this radio. The V-115 makes for a great portable broadcast receiver/recorder and has very pleasant audio–certainly a benchmark performer in the sub $25 category. It’s a great little backup radio to keep in the car glove compartment or go-bag. This is one of the lowest prices for the V-115 I’ve seen on Amazon. This receiver typically floats around the $23-25 range.

Many thanks to SWLing Post contribuor, Charlie (WA2ONH), who notes:
A good price for the XHDATA D-808 on eBay right now. No connection with the vendor. Buy at your own risk.

Thank you for the tip, Charlie! Looks like the seller has a 99.6% positive rating–impressive for the volume they handle. I suppose the only thing worth noting is shipping time–if you opt for free shipping, it could take a few weeks to arrive.
The price–$106.00 AU or $77.51 US–is a great price for the XHDATA D-808.
