Pilot Model 63 (RadioMuseum.com) - RF CafeRadio Service Data Sheets were published by various electronics trade magazines back in the early to middle decades of the last century. SAMS Photofact document sets were published on just about every appliance made, and those had much more detail than these briefs. However, for the low-budget repair shop or the do-it-yourselfer, the Radio Service Data Sheets were a godsend. I have been scanning, cleaning up, and posting all the ones I find in my vintage electronics magazine collection. See a complete list at the bottom.

Many fine examples of restored vintage radios can be found on the Internet. The Pilot Model 63 shown above appears on the RadioMuseum.com website.

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.
