And here is the link for this radio in development - No SYNC detect
but that is not always a deal breaker.

I can see this thread has not been active for a while but I just wanted to tell the whole world how much I LOVE my PL-880. It is one helluva radio, the first I have ever owned with such features - truly variable selectivity, real SSB reception, not just a cheesy unstable BFO. Good sensitivity........really nothing to complain about. Wish I'd had something half as good in my early SWLing years.......well, maybe yes, maybe no, I suppose part of the fun was dealing with cheapo hand-me-down radios.....I would have been spoiled had I had something so capable. I may get a PL-660 just so I can have both.

I have a 660, and it does a pretty good job. I have the luxury of having many receivers for comparison.
I thought of making the 880 an early Christmas gift. Some reviews have been doubtful, and my thoughts were to let
production continue for awhile. I try never to by early models of anything made. Gremlins and revisions will shake out in
the marketplace.(If the Chinese learn from what Japan went through 40 years ago).
