I have been scanning and posting schematics and parts lists like this one featuring the Admiral (full name Admiral Continental Radio & Television Co., located in Chicago, IL) AM radio models 7T06 and 7T12 in graphical format. It appeared in a 1947 issue of Radio News magazine. Publications of the era provided this service data for the sake of both professional repairmen and hobbyist do-it-yourselfers because the manufacturers did not make it available to entities that were not official representatives. Sams Photofact made more detailed documentation available for sale, but it was expensive. 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. I will keep a running list of all data sheets to facilitate a search. An Admiral 7T06 radio recently came up for sale on eBay.

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.
