Need hi-res scans of Sam's folder 371-5, Motorola TS-905

The title pretty much says it all, I'm in need of a high resolution scan of Sam's Photofact folder 371-5, for the Motorola TS-905 chassis.

I've downloaded the Motorola service data courtesy of the ETF, and a handful of articles describing some of the more unique attributes of the set. (Thanks John Yurkon!) I'm just trying to gather as much info as possible, and a second schematic would be an immense help.

I'd pay Sam's the $15 or $20 directly for a scan, but the last time I bought a digital copy from them, the scan was so blurry I couldn't read it and they refused to remedy the situation.

Can anyone help?

I have the folder. Sucker's 33 pages!

How about I just send it to you? PM me with your address

I did actually. After finding a taker for the Hoffman, I realized I was going to want at least one color roundie in the collection, and preferably something both a) equally hard to find, and interesting and b) easier to ship over seas. The Hoffman is about as deep as a CT-100, a touch taller, and twice as wide. Total no-go for shipping. Bob's Moto, on the other hand, fit the bill perfectly. When I looked at the schematic, I fell in love. Only a complete lunatic could come up with that diode demod scheme.
