    Hi,

    Not sure if there is anything in the service manual but i have shown a link to it below, incase you do not have it.

    http://www.zs6kmd.za.net/pdf/TK80_Service_Manual.pdf

    Looks like the kenwood part number is W09-0515-05

    A replacement part from mouser.com is http://gb.mouser.com/ProductDetail/S...V3pLFGtQ%3d%3d i got this information from here http://www.eham.net/forums/MobileHam/15341

    And finally an option in the uk maybe CR2430 , 3v 280mah http://www.dabs.com/products/sony-li...v-x1-4GMP.html

    I purchased a TRC-80 by Kenwood and it has no backup battery.
    The battery has been taken out !!!!
    I do not believe that this specific Kenwood HF radio model sold in North American market.
    Sanyo CR2430-P1-2 Coin Cell Battery with Leads 270 mAh

    BTW, check with Mouser, but you may NOT be able to have that Sanyo battery shipped to UK.

    http://www.ameradio.com/pop_up.html?...756&model=5486

    TK-80 (TRC-80) HF SSB Radiotelephone transceiver, SSB/CW/FSK 100W,
    AM 25W, 80 ch memory, large LCD display, 13.6 VDC, included Owner's Manual, DC cable, microphone, fuses.

    RX: 500 kHz to 30 MHz, TX: 1.8 MHz to 30 MHz, adjustable RF power output, clarifier, VOX,
    Data Mode, CW full and semi break-in, optional internal or external antenna tuner,
    optional selective call system.

    These radios usually used Lithium Coin Cells WITH Solder Tabs (that varied between models).
    Your UK Panasonic or Sanyo distributors or dealers should have the appropriate lithium cell.

    In the States (USA), if the specific lithium cell is no longer offered by Kenwood,
    we have hundreds of Batteries Plus retail outlets.
    They have the equipment in their stores to "spot weld" appropriate solder tabs to the cell.

    BTW, the Kenwood Appliance division also makes a TRC-80 Coffee Maker ...
    now that is an interesting combination!
