Model 12 Superheterodyne


The Echophone Model 12 is a 5-tube Superheterodyne employing the new types 57 and 58
tubes. The circuit consists of a pre-selector; combined first detector and oscillator, employing
a type 57 tube; a 175 KC I. F. stage employing a type 58 tube; a second detector employing a
.type 57 tube; an output stage employing a type 247 tube and a rectifier and filter system em-
ploying a type 280 tube.

The oscillator is tuned by a special section of the three gang condenser and no series
padding condenser is used. The I.F. stage is single tuned, the plate coil being made self resonant
at 175 KC. The second detector is a resistance coupled power detector obtaining its screen grid
voltage from its plate thru a 1 Meg. resistor.

The filter circuit consists of an 8 MF and a 4 MF electrolytic condenser and the speaker
field. Part of the drop across the Held, which is in the negative side of the filter circuit, is used
to bias the grid of the 247 tube.

The volume control operates by varying the bias on the 58 tube and by limiting the an-
tenna in-put to the pre-selector.


All D. C. voltages given were tested on 250V scale of a 1000 ohms per volt meter with
volume on full and no signal in the receiver, line voltage 115.
