Default Mattel Single Channel Pulse

Hello! I'm wondering if anyone has a schematic for the Mattel pulse transmitter. I'm seeing several in the forums andwas hoping someone had one. I'm taking mine out of the drawer along with an Ace/House of Balsa Nomad with .020 I built around 1980. I kinda want to get into single channel.

When I got the radio from AHC there were no instructions. This was my first radio and I assumed the Rx was 4.8 and let some smoke out of a capacitor. It all seemed to still work but I shelfed it to build a Wanderer with and Airtronics XL. I REALLY wanted elevator control. Well now I'm getting back to the Nomad, found an Rx schematic and fixed it but now am having trouble with the transmitter. I'm an electronic technician and found a pulsing with the oscilloscope and high frequency but it's not making it to the antenna. Aschematic would be helpful.

Thanks!

Pat

For reliable single channel you may be interested in this forum. http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_97..._1/key_/tm.htm
Several of us Oldtimers are flying single channel with modern 2.4 equipment and having a ball.
