HELP! Need RT80 VHF Schematic - B&G , Kenyon , Vigil ... All the Same

I used to have the coolest old retro VHF on my Morgan 41 mounted at the helm. It was a full featured VHF (too old to have DSC/AIS though) and was small enough that it fit inside an Edson single instrument pod. I came across another one for FREE but it doesn't work. So...I repaired it (common internal problem to them all) but... I don't have the pin out on the multi-conductor cable that comes out the back. Does anyone have a PDF of the manual, or could scan a copy of the manual? This unit was made by Ross Engineering of Largo, Florida and was marketed as the B&G "Network VHF" and the Kenyon RT80 and the Vigil RT80 VHF, and they are ALL the same unit. Any help on this is GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks so much for your help!

Cheers!
