  1. Interestingly, I just received the same radio in the mail today (also via Aliexpress). Mine came with a manual in all Chinese, which didn’t do me any good, but I had the seller (different one than yours) send me an English manual in pdf format. If you run into similar problems, shoot me an email and I’ll forward it to you.
