Westinghouse Model H-165 (RadioMuseum.org) - RF CafeThis "drive-by" schematic and parts list for the Westinghouse Model H-165 vacuum tube radio appeared in the February 1948 issue of Radio News magazine. I refer to it as drive-by because there was no description or maintenance verbiage provided. It most certainly was considered a portable radio since there is a handle on the top of the case, and a protective cover flips down for access to the dial. Also, the schematic shows battery power, which does not automatically mean portable because even in 1948 there were still many households in rural areas which did not have commercial electric service and relied on storage batteries. The Rural Electrification Act (REA) was passed in 1936 to remedy the issue, but due to World War II, total implementation was delayed. The thumbnail at the left is from the RadioMuseum.org website - a great source for research on vintage vacuum tube radios.

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.

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 World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. 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...
