I found the service manual for the G.E. P4990A!

After searching for weeks.

It turns out SAMs doesn't archive service manuals on radios unless more than 100,000 were manufactured.

Some comments I got while searching...

If I recall, Sams would only publish a (radio, TV, phono, whatever) if there were a minimum of (let's say 100,000) produced. They also relied on the cooperation of the manufacturers to give them info.
I looked in my index; some near numbers are: P4920A (TSM-134), 4920B (-153), 4940A (-146), and 4980A (-135).
If you post pictures of your radio and PC board, maybe someone can look in their copies and see.
I took a quick look in that area, I found TSM-138 for P4700B (picture of PC; no front views in there).

"If you got it!
...why don't you now share it with the radio community?"

"I spoke with two collectors in Japan, one in Hong Kong and one in Australia - - they have never seen any service literature for General Electric P4990".

I saw a 15 year old post by a guy who only posted once on ARF, I emailed him and the manual pdf was in my mailbox within the hour.

Turns out the guy is a retired USAF Master Sergeant, who spent a lot of time flying into hurricanes! He was very gracious.

Now we will see what this rare sweet piece can really do!

Ancient palace emerges from drought-hit Iraq reservoir




02:29
(CNN) — A 3,400-year-old palace has emerged from a reservoir in the Kurdistan region of Iraq after water levels dropped because of drought.
The discovery of the ruins in the Mosul Dam reservoir on the banks of the Tigris River inspired a spontaneous archeological dig that will improve understanding of the Mittani Empire, one of the least-researched empires of the Ancient Near East, the Kurdish-German team of researchers said in a press release.

"The find is one of the most important archaeological discoveries in the region in recent decades," Kurdish archeologist Hasan Ahmed Qasim said in a press release.
The Mittani Empire is one of the least researched civilizations of the Ancient Near East.

The palace would have originally stood just 65 feet from the river on an elevated terrace. A terrace wall of mud bricks was later added to stabilize the building, adding to to the imposing architecture.
Ivana Puljiz, an archeologist from the University of Tübingen's Institute for Ancient Near Eastern Studies, describes the palace, known as Kemune, as a carefully designed building with mud-brick walls up to two meters (6.6 feet) thick.
Some of the walls are more than two meters high, and various rooms have plastered walls, she added.
The team also found wall paintings in shades of red and blue, which were probably a common feature of palaces at the time but have rarely been found preserved.
"Discovering wall paintings in Kemune is an archaeological sensation," she said in a press release.
"Kemune is only the second site in the region where wall paintings of the Mittani period have been discovered," Puljiz told CNN in an email.

What kind of soulless bastards...

.
Could work in an enviroment where children are being treated worse than we can legally treat our pets?

See the torment, smell the stench, hear the crying of the innocent, without quitting and going to the press to decry this barbarism?

I hope those children's eyes, the sights, the sounds, and the smell haunt their nightmares for the rest of their lives.
