Have you had any luck finding one?  I've been in search of an R8000 control head for years.

I may have seen one of these at the Manassas, VA hamfest, two weeks ago.  It was the first one I have ever seen.  It hadnít sold yet when I left and it didnít seem to be getting much interest.  I bought a 75S3 from the same gentleman; I will look inside the manual to see if he wrote down his call.
