    Robb,
    Cool find! Can you identify the board or PLL chip?

    Wow! Everybody was putting their names on CB radio's back then. Next thing we'll hear is someone looking for help on their 7/11 branded CB. I got nothing to add except a snark comment.

    Fulmer is still in business, you could give them a call. They'll probably tell you they don't have any paperwork on it and haven't for years, but hey, at least they're still around:

    Ya know, the faceplate sure has all of the same features/look as the Lake 600.
    Now, if I could get ahold of a schematic I might have a chance.
    Thanks!

    Yes, I believe the Lake 600 is almost a sure bet. Unless you can obtain a schematic by other means, I would buy the complete Sam’s Book, not some poor copy of the schematic that was torn out of their book. I see a lot of Sam’s schematics being sold on Ebay, and the price difference isn’t worth it IMO.

    I'm not sure but I did have one here that says,GM on it that came in several GM vehicles & it's a common brand but I can't remember who the regular model was now? Pearce Simpson & Pace I believe made some of them.
