SBJRT WAVE ThmER: A short wave trimmer control is incorporated in the receiver and is used for a fine
ng adjustmen w en tuning for short wave reception from 1.5 negacycles to 24 megacycle s. The land
selector switch knob consists of two sections. The small front section knob is used for adjusting the
short wave trimer and the large rear section is the band selector stitch knob. 'hon tuning for short
wave reception always rotate the tuning control slowly until a station is heard with maximum volume. Don't,

elimination of signal, static and background noises. Rotating the short wave trimmer control slightly ei-
ther clockwise or counter-clockwise will bring the signal in again. When operating the receiver on the
broadcast band (1500 LC. to 540 LC.) the trimmer is inoperative.

ALIGMNT PROCEIIIRE: Only When an Etenna, oscillator or I. F. transformer has become defective due to an
open or shorte w nding should it be necessary to realign the receiver. For aligning either the intermedi-
ate transformer or variable condenser it is necessary that an oscillator be used with some type of output
measuring device.

l. Connect the high side of the oscillator output to the control grid of the m First Detector tube,
leaving the grid clip disconnected. The ground side of the osrillator should be connected to the chassis.

2. set the oscillator st 465 kilseysles (this must be accurate) and. soJost use output of the emulator
so that a convenient reading '1s obtained on the output meter.

3. Align the first intermediate transformer by turning the brass hex nut of the first intermediate
transformer trimmer up and down until maximum reading is obtained on the output mater, then adjust the trim
mer sore' located inside of the brass hex nut in the same manner. The intermediate transformer trimmer
screws are accessible through the els-11 hole in the top of the intermediate transformer shields.

.4. The second and third I. F. transformers should next be. adjusted in the some manner as the first LP.

TO ALIGN THE! VARIABLE CONDENsz It is important when aligning the variable condenser and padding' conden-
sers to follow the procedure given carefully, otherwise the receiver will be insensitive and the dial cali-
bro-tion will be incorrect.

l. Connect the high output side of the oscillator to the antenna and the ground to the chassis.

2.' Place the band selector switch for operation on the 1.5 to 4 megacycle band. Tune the receiver to
exactly 1.'7 megacycles onthe dial, set the short wave trimmer about half the distance between maximum
clockwise and counter-clockwise rotation and adjust the oscillator frequency to exactly 1.'7 megacycles. '

Iext, bring this 1.7 megacycle signal in to maximum output by sdJusting the padding condenser accessible
through the hole in the right hand side and closest to the rear or the chassis.

3. Leave the band selector switch for operation on the 1.5 to 4 megacycle band and tune the receiver to
exactly 5.4 megscycles on the dial.

Next, set the test oscillator to exactly 5.4 megscyoles and. tune the si$l in by adjusting the oscillator
variable condenser trimmer mounted on top of the variable con nser, e m1 e section o e var-12x e
condenser is the oscillator section. Recheck the 1.7 megacycls adjustment after making the adjustment at

4 megacyclee. For best results it is always advisable to check each sdJustmuZ several times. lOTE: This
completes the short wave adjustment.

4. AdJust the band selector switch for operation on the broadcast band (1500 to 540 kilocyoles) and
tune the receiver to exactly 1400 lcllocycles on the dial and set the oscillator to this frequency. Turn
the receiver on end and bring this 1400 kilocycle signal in to maximum output by adjusting the trimmer ecre
I on the small trimer,vhich is located adJacant to the short wave switch underneath the chassis.

Next, adjust the antenna and preselector variable Condenser section trimmers mounted on top of the variable
condenser for maximum signal output. These 'are the front and rar gang sections).

5. Leave the band selector switch for operation on the broadcast band (1500 to 540 kilocyclee) and tune
the receiver and oscillator to approximately 600 kilooyclee. Then adjust the 600 kilocycle padding conden-
ser which is located on the right hand side and towards the front of the chassis for maximum output reading.
This adJustment is quite critical and it is necessary to rock the condenser slightly to the right and left
to obtain maximum sensitivity.

I Always recheck the 1400 kilocycle alignment after making the sdJustment at 500 kilocycles. '

SHORT WAVE RECEPTIOK- The usual carsless tuning that is sufficient to bring in the long wave length regu-

lar Broadcast tations will fail in tuning in short wave reception. In tuning for shcrt wave stations,
1," great care must be taken so that the stations are not passed over, as the tuning is ver sharp and guite
f critical. lsny times s lack of rmlts when tuning for short wave stations is due no only to thopemtor
`tuning the receiver incorrectly, but also to the operator trying to pick up foreign and North American
short wave stations when the stations are not broadcasting. An important consideration is the time di!~
ference between the United States and European Countriesgie., at 10:00 PJ. Central Standard Time it 1.

casting at that time. While short wave reception presents a varied and more thrilling entertainment hm
we have been accustomed to hearing on the broadcast band, the mnny peculiarities and difficulties of short
"va reception have been minimized and the possibilities over-omphnsized, which has resulted in the er-
roneous belief that reception of foreigx short wave stations is an easy accomplishment. To the contrary,
short wave stations are not tuned in with the ease we have been accustomed to in tuning in local broadcast
stations, but requires patience, extreme care in tuning, an understanding of the proper procedure and
favorable conditions. Reception of short wave stations, as a rule, is not comparable to the clear, static-
free programs received from the local broadcast stations, but is more erratic and is generally accompanied
by fading and static although occasionally reception may be as good as local programs.

I Reception of short wave stations varies from season to season and between daylight and after Sunset.

Bend Ko. 4 (regular broadcast band) from 1500 to 540 kilocyolss varies also in that the range of the
station is materially increased after dark and fading of distant stations becomes more pronounced. In
some locations stations that are received during daylight occasionally i'sde so badly after sundown that
it is impossible to receive good reception after dark. Other stations which cannot be heard during day-
light provide good reception after darkness.

End lo. 3, 1.5 to 4.0 mogacycles permits reception of police calls and some amateur phone stations.
'his range of the stations broadcast within this band is increased after sundown.

Bend lo. 2 from 10.0 to 4.0 mqscycles includes the 49 meter band, the 31 unter band and some amateur
stations. Stations broadcast within this band include many of the foreign short wave stations and North
American Stations. Reception of stations transmitting on the 49 meter band is most reliable during the
Sx-er months when located approximately 300 miles or more during daylight which increases to 1,500 miles
or more when a large portion o! the signal path lies in darlmess. 'me Winter range is approximately 600
miles during daylight and 2,000 miles or more after sundcwn. Stations operating on the 51 meter band are
most reliable when the receiver is located about 800 miles away during daylight in the Sumsr months in-
creasirg to 2,500 miles after sundown.

land Ho. l, from 24 msgacycles to 10.0 memcycles includes the 25, 19 and 16 meter hands. Reception
of stations in the 25 mater band is best during daylight when the receiver and transmitter are located
1,000 .iles or less than 2,000 miles apart. "ter sundovn reception may be expected only from stations
located a distance of 2,000 miles or more away from the receiver. Stations operating on the 19 meter band
U provide satisfactory reception generally during daylight hours only. After nightfall or when any appreci-
/'\ able portion of the transmission path is in darkness signals are rarely heard. Stations operating below 19
meters are generally useful only when transmitting during dayliyit and over s distance of 2,000 miles or
more. Ordinarily they cannot be received after sunset.
