Hoping against hope that someone might have this manual with schematic. I did find someone on AudioKarma that has it, but the scan is far too large to Email and I have no dropbox or other magic account that can take a huge file like that, so I have no idea how to get it here.

It's the only one I've found online so far. Still looking but would like to fix this one to actually use if possible.

Thanks in advance

Got a google account? Then you have a google drive.....

You have a website, set up a folder on your server for uploads, add them as an FTP user, and Filezilla away..

Have them upload it to BAMA for all....

RAR the file, then email R01, R02, R03, ...... - we used this at sea, where email attachments had to be less than 512K. 62 emails for one Lambda supply, but when we rar'd them back to one file, we had our 30MB file.....

You can send up to 5TB (yes TERA) to a Google Drive account.

If you happen to have a gmail account, you're more than half way there...

Thanks .. .all good suggestions. I do not think I have a google account... just email. Never really fiddled with it much.

I'll see what I can get him to do... beggers can't be choosers. I think he said the file was something like 17meg or so. I will doublecheck and let y'all know.

FTP to my website? I'll see if that can be done. I am not web guru by any means.... it's powered by some drag and drop type thing, but you CAN get behind all that to the HTML if you want. I dunno how...... :(

Since the file is only around 17 mb, you can get a free, no-ads, no-nonsense drop-box account at box.com.

https://www.box.com/pricing/individual

You can then allow the fellow with the manual to upload his file which you can then download. There are 10 gb of storage available with a maximum individual file size of 250 mb (!). I find my free account extremely useful for file sharing with ARF members.

Thanks Dave. As it turns out, the manual is actually 137mb ... so I'm guessing all suggestions so far may be out the window unless I can figure out if I can allow an FTP to my website. Will try.

Other than that, any ideas?

Thanks again. You mean NO ONE here has one or three of these?? lol

Barry - you are right. My suggestion is out the window. I went to my free box.com account and they have changed their terms of service for the free accounts. As of March 15th, I can no longer allow someone else to upload a file...only share files that I have uploaded. It would work if he had an account and shared the file with you.

Apparently I may be able to allow someone else to put a file in my iCloud Drive... but I haven't figured out how yet without granting someone full access to the account. <sigh>

Why not put it on a USB drive and mail it as the drives are dirt cheap now.

If you have a google email account then you have a google account and access to their free google drive function. It is quite easy to use and share files-large ones at that.
Open the google search page in your web browser then click on the little square of boxes in the upper right corner then select Drive from the menu.

Beautiful unit. I read an article on their testing of receivers a master unit or executive model, cannot remember, the transmitter in one room, the receiver in another, and the accuracy of reproduction they achieved, nearly identical. Nothing better than listening to FM (like it or not) on these old Fishers through old AR speakers or those tuned for tubes, especially when you tweak the MPX just right. The Hickok 225a was my friend. When a unit was out, it was a job getting from the front end to the mpx, and just a minute turn of the 19 (if I remember) was all the difference in grand and glorious sound to literally nothing. Some purist like the 400 better than the c.
