Radio Service Data Sheet

August 1939 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.

This Radio Service Data Sheet is from the series published by Radio-Craft magazine in the 1920s and 1930s. I am posting them for the benefit of people who restore those vintage models to working order. It is still possible to buy Sam's Photofacts packages that include schematics and alignment data, but these info sheets fill the gap for ones either not available, or for someone needing to get a feeling for what he/she is up against before making a full commitment to the task.

Mr. Serviceman:

This is No. 259 in a series of Radio Service Data Sheets within Radio-Craft instituted with the October, 1929 issue. During this time the manner of presenting these Data Sheets has undergone considerable modification in accordance with comments by readers. Can you suggest any changes which will make these Data Sheets of greater value to the majority of the Servicemen who read Radio-Craft?

Alignment Procedure

Test Oscillator. - For all alignment operations, connect the low side of the test oscilla­tor to the receiver chassis, and keep the output signal as low as possible to avoid A. V .C. action.

Cathode-Ray Alignment is the preferable method. Connections for the oscilloscope are as follows: Vertical "H1" to terminal "C" on 2nd I-F transformer; vertical "0" to chassis.

Output Meter. - Connect the output meter across the speaker voice-coil and turn the receiver volume control to maximum (fully clockwise) and the tone control to middle of range.

Dial Calibration. - Rotate the gang condenser to its full-mesh (maximum-capacity) position and then adjust dial scale so that the pointer is aligned to the last calibration mark at the low-frequency end of the scale.

Antenna Circuit

It is very important that these instructions be followed when installing' the M-70 receiver.

The antenna circuit is designed to work with an antenna having a total capacity including the shielded lead-in not to exceed 150 mmf. If an antenna having a larger capacity is to be used, it will be necessary to add a condenser in series with the lead from the antenna filter L1 to the antenna coil terminal ("A"). Where a "Doublet Under the Running Board" type of antenna is to be used having a capacity of approximately 200 mmf., the condenser added should be approximately 500 mmf. The insulated running board type having an approx. capacity of 550 mmf. will require a condenser of approximately 150 mmf. Cars using an insulated steel top of approximately 3,500 mmf. will require a series condenser of 150 mmf.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
