Thanks for the great review, glad you highlighted the possible design plagiarism (I feel less guilty about owning the 808 since I also have the CC Crane original...). One thing I noticed is you wrote that your radio did not have squelch on Air Band; mine (bought about 18mo ago) actually does.
On my example:
Hardware: squelch available on all bands (including air);
Manual: states squelch only available on air.
Hi Dave,

Hmm-- very interesting! My D-808 manual says nothing about a squelch capability, so apparently not all D-808 manuals are created equal.

I'm current on an ocean coast DXpedition and unable to investigate further, but the 2021 Shootout article will be updated to include your information. Thanks!
