I have acquired the datasheet for the main radio IC, RD1845, and interestingly, the comment posted on the forum with the datasheet download was the following: "Radio chip, the transceiver has a lot of indicators can not meet the national standard! Careful use!" The datasheet can be found here: Additionally, the registers and programming info can be found here (for more adventurous hackers):
