Thank you for the info, but I think it is very much money, more that 
double than I paid for the unit, and the shipping charges to Europe 
could be really high if the manual is heavy.
Really some used manual suppliers ask a lot for manuals of equipment 
whose commercial value is zero.
Anyway, thank you again.

Ignacio, EB4APL
