Sonora Model TW-49 Radio (RadioMuseum.org) - RF CafeI have been scanning and posting Radio Service Data Sheets like this one featuring the Sonora Model TW-49 radio receiver for many years now. There are still many people who restore and service these vintage radios, and often it can be difficult or impossible to find schematics and/or tuning information. The thumbnail image of the Sonora Model TW-49 came from the RadioMuseum.org website.

Sonora Model TW-49 Radio Service Data Sheet

Sonora Model TW-49 Radio Service Data Sheet, November 1939 Radio-Craft - RF Cafe5-Tube Superhet.: A.C.-D.C. Operation; Automatic Tuning;. Automatic Volume Control; Tuning Range: 535 kc. to 1,720 kc, (includes 1,712 kc. Police Band); Provision for Television or Phonograph Connection.

Lack of sensitivity and poor tone quality may be due to any one or a combination of causes such as weak or defective tubes or speaker. open or grounded bias resistor. bypass condenser. etc. Never attempt to realign set until all other possible sources of trouble have been first thoroughly investigated and definitely proved not to be the cause.

Correct Alignment Procedure: The inter­mediate frequency (I.F.) stages should be aligned properly as the first step. After the I.F. transformers have been properly adjusted and peaked, the broadcast band should be adjusted.

I.F. ALIGNMENT. With the gang condenser set at minimum, adjust the test oscillator to 456 kc. and connect the output to the grid of the 1st-detector tube (12A8GT) through a 0.05-or 0.1-mf. condenser. The ground on the test oscillator should be connected to the chassis ground. Align all 3 I.F. trimmers to peak or maximum reading on the output meter.

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 220 Radio Service Data Sheets as of February 2, 2018.

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 ...
