It does take many hours to write and produce a service manual, but TT 
could sell them separately for those who want them. When I bought my 
Icom  R-71A, I bought the service manual too, and I'm very glad that I did.

I had no idea that Ten-Tec was no longer supplying servicing 
information. My Corsair, Paragon, and Scout all came with detailed 
manuals. This is what set Ten-Tec apart from the imports. Traditionally, 
Ten Tec encouraged owners to service their equipment, even making spare 
boards available. Not so with the imports. It will be a sad day when Ten 
Tec products can only be serviced at the factory.
