General Electric Model 280 Radio - RF Cafe

(RadioAtticArchives.com)

For many years I have been scanning and posting schematics & parts lists like this one featuring the General Electric Model 280 tabletop radio. It appeared in a 1947 issue of Radio News magazine. Unlike with most of these documentation sets, no functional description or tuning data was included. I did find a few pages from the John F. Rider (similar to Sams PhotoFacts) service manual - see below. The thumbnail image at the left is a restored GE 280 appearing on the RadioAtticArchives.com website. There is also a shot of the inside showing the chassis, tuning dial, and speaker. 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 keep a running list of all data sheets at the bottoms of these pages.

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...
