some radios have an onboard keep alive battery or capacitor that saves the cmos memory (like a laptop computer.) it is a rare feature but a rather nice one.

usually the capacitor won't store a charge for 3 days so your deck probably has an onboard battery. cmos chips use a very low voltage (3 volts or less) and have an ultra low current draw.
