    I have seen the TRC458 SM thread posted here, but never even opened it up because I have a factory SM for this rig. Looked at the thread the other day and realized that it's just a scan of the SAM's manual for that model.
    So ... I scanned my factory service manual and I'm posting it here. The factory manuals for the realistic 858 models contain a wealth of information on the various circuits as well as some solid trouble shooting tips.

    This book isn't in the greatest shape after 40+ years of use, but no missing pages and all of the info is there. I did not scan the parts list pages. I figure they are in the Sam's for the 858s which are readily available.

    Enjoy & 73s.

    OH gosh 399, wish I had known you were going to shut your site down. I would have saved it to my hard drive. ever so often I go over there for the 858 chassis radios. last time was just a couple weeks ago I used your site.
    is it gone for good or just temporary. I know the last time you just moved the site.

    The site had been up since 2013, and I just felt like it was getting kinda stale so decided to shut it down. It had over half a million visitors in its life time and that made me proud. No plans today for a new site, but tomorrow ... who knows??

    Thank you everyone for the kind words. 73s

    Unit_399 could you post the info here so every one could use it. so much good info was on your site. hate to see it go to waste setting somewhere not being used. in fact this is the site that most people are using these days. the info would be very handy to have it here. I have 5 858 chassis radios and ever so often used your site for the info for them.

    399 I wanted to throw my thanks into the ring for putting this manual up.

    If luck holds I should be getting two of these this weekend. One he says works... the other is questionable which is fine with me.

    I have the SAMS but when I went looking for the Service Manual on CB Tricks and saw they didn't have it..... I did a wide open "search" and found this reference.

    Thanks a million!
