Here is the manual for a Watterson 79 radio. I found it in an old Rider's manual, and couldn't find a copy anywhere else online, so here it is.

Apple emergency patches fix zero-click iMessage bug used to inject NSO spyware

Apple on Monday issued security patches for its mobile and desktop operating systems, and for its WebKit browser engine, to address two security flaws, at least one of which was, it is said, used by autocratic governments to spy on human rights advocates.

One of the bugs, CVE-2021-30860, resides in Apple's CoreGraphics framework. Reported by researchers at University of Toronto's Citizen Lab, the bug consists of an integer overflow that allows a malicious PDF file to achieve arbitrary code execution, allowing spyware and other malicious programs to run.


Just sayin'... as you are uploading a random unrequested file when there are millions of radio sets out there, and not many folk own a Watterson radio!

I should have put some pictures in my original post about the manual. No malicious intent, just trying to make it available.

Apologies dood, bad day. lol

Watterson sets are not very common outside of Dallas and the surrounding area. Never knew that they published service literature - - - obviously

Very neat. I think the chances of finding any Watterson radios up here in Missouri are kind of slim. (Let alone a 79!) The manual that I found was stuck in between the pages of a Rider's manual that came from a relative in Texas.
