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

Crosley Model 515 (Fiver) from Worthpoint - RF CafeThis is another Radio Service Data Sheet that appeared in the March 1936 edition of Radio-Craft magazine. I post this schematic and functional description of the Crosley Model 515 (Fiver) 5-Tube 2-Band Superhet radio manufacturers' publications for the benefit of hobbyists and archivists who might be searching for such information either in a effort to restore a radio to working condition, or to collect archival information. An extensive list of similar radio service data sheets from many different electronics magazines of the day is at the bottom of the page.

Crosley Model 515 (Fiver) 5-Tube 2-Band Superhet. Radio Service Data Sheet, March 1936 Radio-Craft - RF Cafe(Tone control; ranges, 540-1,570 kc., 1,570-4,000 kc.: airplane dial; 685 output tube; dynamic speaker)

When aligning the I.F. amplifier of this set, keep the service oscillator lead well away from the tubes. It is attached to the cap of V1. Tuning condenser must be at lowest capacity. Volume control, total 8,000 ohms, 200 ohms fixed.

The voltages for this set are as follows:

Tube V5 has 4.9 V. on the filament; the others, 6.3 V. Total power consumption is 50 W. The R.F. circuits are aligned at 1,570 for the oscillator and 1,400 for the ant. section. The police band does not need aligning.

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.

Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
