Admiral Model 6RT44-7B1 Phonograph (Radio Attic photo)

Whenever I post any of these Radio Data Sheets from vintage electronics magazines, I attempt to find photos of actual units. Drawings are good, but actually seeing a for-real example is the best option. This Admiral Model 6RT44-7B1 phonograph appears on the Radio Attic's Archive website. As mentioned previously, electronics service shops relied heavily on these Radio Data Sheets that were printed in monthly magazines like Radio-Craft, Radio News, and Radio & Television News. The alternative was purchasing service documentation from the manufacturer (often only available to factory-authorized shops), from Sam's Photofacts, or some other third-party supplier. Of course experience and intuitiveness could substitute for documentation, but as many episodes of John T. Frye's series of "Mac's Radio Service Shop" illustrates, quirky variations in circuits can really throw a curve to the serviceman.

1. Loop must be connected during alignment. Check the set screws that hold the tuning drum to the shaft to see that they are tight and that the drum has not slipped on the shaft. The correct position of the drum can be seen on the manufacturer's stringing diagram.

2. In the closed position the stop on the rear of the dial drum must be against the stop post.

3. With the gang wide open, all slugs should be 1 3/8 inches out of their coil forms. If there is any serious deviation or if there has been any tampering, turn the adjusting screws until this distance is correct.

4. Be sure both the set and the signal generator are thoroughly warmed up before starting alignment.

5. Turn receiver Volume Control full on.

6. Use lowest output setting of signal generator that gives a satisfactory reading on meter.

7. Proceed in sequence as outlined below.

If it becomes necessary to change a tuning slug proceed in the following manner: Set the gang to its wide open position, unsolder arid remove the old slug. Set the slug adjusting screw about half way down. Place the new slug in such a position that 1 3/8 inches of its length is above the coil form. Solder it in this position, making sure that it does not slip during the 'operation and that the slug wire is straight. Proceed to realign the set as shown in the chart.

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 222 Radio Service Data Sheets as of July 10, 2019.

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 typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
