Vocaline schematic / power connections

I just acquired a Vocaline AT-30.  This is the amateur
radio version of the old Vocaline "free running
oscillator" transmitter / regenerative receiver.  It
is actually tunable from 420 MHz to 450 MHz by a front
panel "calibrated" tuning control.

Basically, this is a version that is similar to the
Class "B" Citizen's Radio Service 460 MHz transceivers
that were made in the late 1950s and very early 1960s.

I am looking for a schematic on this unit.  Or, if
that isn't possible at least the power connector
hookup.  This unit is for 6 VDC and 120 VAC operation.
 The plug on the front is exactly like the "CB"
versions (I have one of those in excellent condition
but missing the power cord!).  I suspect that the
power supply connections are the same between the
amateur radio version and the "CB" versions.

I know that the rig is not suitable for operation on
the 70 cm band these days.  But, I would like to get
it going just to get it going!  It runs as much FM as
AM on the transmitter!  I don't think anything but a
regenerative receiver would be able to receive the
signal with any sense of reliability.
