December 1936 Radio Craft Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio-Craft, published 1929 - 1953. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

In the early days of radio, it was common for manufacturers to sell the electronics chassis separately from the cabinet, as well as selling a chassis / cabinet combination. Even as late as in 1941, the Crosley 03BC radio I have was a custom wooden console sold for accepting electronics from the 02CA electronics. I have never been able to find an advertisement where Crosley sold the 03CB as an integrated set, although I have seen ads for the cabinet. This Crosley Model 1316 chassis was evidently supplied in an optional Model 167 console cabinet, as presented in a 1936 issue of Radio−Craft magazine. A Web search turned up other Model 167 cabinets of both the "tombstone" and "cathedral" design. Did the Crosley numbering system top out at 167 for a while?

This receiver designed for high-fidelity phonograph, as well as radio reproduction has a "Phantom Control" (second from the left - see front view of chassis for positions of controls) which permits turning in either the (position B). Automatic Frequency Control alone, which holds the receiver tuned to the strongest signal within 20 kc., or both the A.F.C. and the Phantom Conductor Tube. V11 (position C). The feature of the Phantom Conductor tube is that it contains 2 resistors with such a thermal characteristic that, when connected across the speaker voice coil, it increases the volume of loud tones. This is particularly designed to compensate for the limitations of broadcasting equipment, which cannot give full volume to the loudest passages, and should have the same effect with phonograph music. When this control is at position A, neither A.F.C. (the "Mystic Hand") nor Phantom Conductor is operative. This permits operation with normal power output and fidelity. The fidelity control is incorporated with the power switch. The volume control operates on both A.F. grids (V5, V6). The band-selector switch operates also a tone filter.

Radio Service Data Sheets

These schematics, tuning instructions, and other data are reproduced from my collection of vintage radio and electronics magazines. As back in the era, similar schematic and service info was available for purchase from sources such as SAMS Photofacts, but these printings were a no-cost bonus for readers. There are 227 Radio Service Data Sheets as of December 28, 2020.
