Anybody have a decent copy of the RBL-3 manual FS?

I want to get my RBL-3 cleaned up, restored, otherwise checked out and
warmed up for hearing SAQ on 17.2 KHz on 1 Jan, 2K.

SAQ is an early Alexanderson transmitter station located in Grimeton,
Sweden. FYI, see attached copy of msg to our AWA Museum curator:
