Wanted: BC-8500XLT Service manual or Schematic.

I am looking for a Bearcat BC-8500 Service manual or Schematic.
Would like to see if it's possible to unblock the 800 MHz band
(if I can't find one). Not interested in the virtual mod
that displays the blocked out part of the band in the 300 MHz

Looking for Cellular mods (diode type, not virtual downconversion).
I have checked several mod sites on the internet with know luck.
It should have a diode mod because it was made before 1994 and all
other Bearcat 800 MHz scanners made before 1994 have diode/wire cut
mods including 200, 205, 600, 700, 760, 855, 890, and 2500.
BTW- I have seen these mods posted earlier but I don't have them myself.

Looking for Keypad Tricks like BC-3000 or BC-9000 radios have.

Would like any technical info on this radio. Any Bearcat hardware
hackers out there?
