Testing the XHDATA D-808 mini world band receiver  View Printable Version 
Sunday, February 18 2018

Manuel MÃndez
Lugo, Spain

Yesterday I received the XHDATA D-808 small size world band receiver I bought it on Amazon. The radio seems to be very sensitive on short wave for its price and size and it is very good for travelling, because is much smaller than the Tecsun PL.880, Sony ICF SW7600 G or the Sangean ATS 909X.Â
It has FM with RDS, six filters on short wave and medium wave: 6, 4, 3, 2,5, 2, 1,8 and 1 kHz and other six on SSB, Â4, 3, 2,2, 1,2, 1, and 0.5 kHz.
Powered by a 18650 lithium battery, charge via a micro usb port like the Android smartphones and with a smartphone charger.Â

Here my first longs with it in Lugo, where reception conditions are worse than in Friol
XHDATA D-808, cable antenna, 8 meters.
