I've got a Panasonic RF-1060 that looks a lot like (actually, exactly like) your RF-1080. Anyone know the difference between the RF-1060 and the RF-1080?

No doubt, these are sweet little radios. They receive well on both AM and FM, deliver decent audio quality, and run forever on a set of alkaline C cells. Much more portable than my RF-2200, too!

Picked up a RF-1080 for $7 at a thrift store. After some cleaning and DeOxit treatments, it plays like new. What a superb design; it's made to do one thing and it does it exceedingly well. (And yes sports fans, you CAN straighten a bent antenna so long as it hasn't been folded. Just go slow.) The tuning meter really helps in peaking the signal from the little 5 watt LPFM (KBRP) two canyons away. Could anyone point me to an owner's manual? The RF-1080 is simple to use, but it would be nice to see the instructions!
