Amazing FM/Weather Reception.

Six Hundred Memories.
Nice Size.
Good Build Quality.
SOS Alarm.

Scan Feature moved to VF/VM button. Browse the Band you’re on, or your Saved Memories.

MP3 Player. Remembers Exact Track Position.
Type C Jack for Recharging the Radio.
Headphone Experience is Amazing. No Clicks, Pops, or Hiss found here.
Dedicated Sleep Function Button.
Four FM Band Plans. 64, 76, 87, 87.5 – 108MHz.
Lock Function.

Features that could be Added or Improved on:
Longer Tuning Knob. It is a bit on the Thin Side.
Ability to lock in Fast, or the Slow Setting while using the Tuning Knob.
Seek Tuning! It is missing. Browsing isn’t the same.
Quick Tuning using the Right, and Left Arrow Buttons. This would be Fantastic.
DX/Local Mode Not Great.
Voice/Music Mode is Reversed, and Voice will be the Setting Used Most of the Time.

Overall, the D-109WB has been Improved from the Previous model. Adding Weather Alert, Improved Shortwave Reception, SOS Feature, and more Responsive Buttons make this a Good Value Under $50.
