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
area.

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?
