GENERAL INFORMATION
The Model 160 Portable Radio is a five-tube superheterodyne
broadcast receiver which operates from a built-in rechargeable
battery or from 105-125 volts, 50 or 60 cps with a battery in
The following paragraphs describe special tests for checking'
the power supply and the battery of the receiver, and explain
some of the special_constructiona1 features which will be en-
`countered while servicing the receiver.
1 I. POWR SUPPLY
All power necessary for the operation of the receiver is supplied
'by the 2-volt rechargeable battery mounted within the radio.
Power to the 1,4 volt tube filaments is supplied by the battery
through suitable voltage dropping resistors. The high voltage
ifor the screens and plates of the tubes is furnished by a syn-
chronous vibrator used in conjunction with a step-up power trans-
former and its associated filter circuit. The synchronous vibrator
operates directly from the battery.
The receiver power is obtained from the battery at all times in
the manner just described, whether the power cord is connected
to a power source or not. When the power cord is connected to a
receptacle supplying from 105 to 125 volts, 50 or 60 cps, a-c and
the power selector is in either the CHARGE or ON position, the
power supplied from the line will be used to charge the battery.
The CHARGE position on the three-position power selector
switch allows the battery to be charged from the house current
when the receiver- is not operating. The ON position of the switch
permits the radio to be operated with the battery iioating on the
charger. Under this condition the battery filters the charger's
output, maintains the voltage at its proper value and acquires a
slow charge, if the voltage is adequate.
The battery charging unit consists of a step-down transformer
which converts the line voltage of 117 volts to approximately 5.8
volts center-tapped, and a full wave copper-oxide rectifier which
supplies the battery with the d-c charging current.
A charging cable is available which provides an easy means of
charging the radio battery from an automobile or a 6-volt storage
battery. The cable plug is inserted over the pins provided, see
Figure 3, and the plug and socket on the other end of the cable
are connected to a 6-volt supply. Complete installation instruc-
tions are provided with each cable.
2. CHARGER CHAIACTRISTICS
Testing the Operation of the ReclU'ier Unit-A $4 ampere fuse
is used in series vnth the primary of the charger transformer. If'
the battery does not show any signs of becoming charged after a
reasonable length of time, check the fuse. If it is necessary to
replace the fuse, use a %-ampere (G.E_ No. 2548 or REF-001) fuse.
If one or more of the copper-oxide discs of the rectifier unit
are defective, the charger will not operate properly. To test the
rectifier unit operation, remove the battery from the unit and re-
connect it in series with a d-c ammeter capable of reading at
least two amperes. Plug the power cord into a 105-125 volts, 50
or 60 cps, a-c supply, and turn the power selector switch to the
CHARGE position. With the a-c line voltage at 117 volts, the
average charging current should read about 1.8 amperes at 2.1
volts battery voltage. Care must be exercised in making this test'
as the charging circuit is of extremely low resistance. Very heavy
leads must be used, and the use of an ammeter having only 0.05
ohms resistance will introduce considerable error. If the line
voltage is greater than 117 volts, or the battery voltage is lower
than 2.1 volts, the charging current will be greater. If the current
is much less than 1.8 amperes at the rated line voltage of 117 volts,
one or more of the copper-oxide discs may be defective.
Testing the Individual RectMer Disc-Two rectifier assemblies.
are used in the receiver, each assembly consisting of two rectifier
discs held together by an eyelet. A cross section of a rectifier as-

2. A fully charged battery will operate the radio in the ON
position without being connected to an a-c outlet for about 12 to
15 hours before recharging is required. Whenever possible, it is
best not to allow the battery to become discharged to the extent
that both indicators disappear. However, if both indicators have
sunk, the battery should be recharged immediately or within 24
3. A battery will continually discharge at a slow rate even
when not in use. For this reason, monthly checks should be made
of the charge condition and the battery placed on charge when
necessary. This will prevent damage to the battery, such as freez-
ing during cold weather.
The following instructions should be carefully followed in in-
stalling a battery, or replacing an old one:
1. Remove battery from packing carton.
2. If needed, add water to bring liquid level to indicator
mark on battery container. Do not overfill.
3. Raise back cover on radio, remove battery case cover. The
latter is removed by lifting two catches.
4. Unplug old battery if present, and replace with new
5. Place battery on cbarge,if necessary, as described in a
previous paragraph, until both indicators are showing in the
opening in the case cover.
ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT ALIGNMEN1'
1. Signal generator with audio tone modulation.
2. A-C output meter, 1 or M volts full scale, 1000 ohms/volt.
3. Insulated screwdriver.
5. Antenna loop.
6. Shorted one turn loop (for "wanding").
7. Powdered iron cores.
1. General-The alignment procedure is given in table form
for convenience. Reference is made to Figure 5 for the trimmer
locations. The low side of the signal generator should be connected
to the chassis of the receiver for i-f alignment; the`high side should
be connected as indicated in the Alignment Chart. A meter or
some other suitable indicating device must be connected to the
output of the receiver.
When aligning the receiver, the volume control on the receiver
should be turned to its maximum position. The output signal of
the signal generator should be kept as low as possible at all times,
on this mounting plate, it is necessary to ground this plate tem-
porarily to the chassis by means of a metal strip or wire to avoid
excessive hum.
For the r~f alignment, the chassis can be left in the cabinet and
the output meter connected between the auxiliary green voice
eoil lead provided and chassis.
3. Connecting the Szhnal Generator-After aligning the i-f
transformer T3, the output of the signal generator shouldbe coupled
through a 0.05 mf. capacitor to the grid of the 1R5 oscillator-
converter tube. This may he accomplished easily by connecting
the capacitor to t.he stator of C1-B,the middle section ofthe tuning
gang, as this stator is connected directly to the converter grid.
The low side of the signal generator output should be connected
to the chassis ground to complete the circuit.
For aligning the oscillator and r-f coils, the r-f signal should be
inductively coupled by connecting a three- or four-tum, 6-inch
diameter loop of bell wire across the signal generator output
terminals and then locating the loop about one foot from the radio
cover. To prevent possible error in peak readings, the position
of the loop with respect to the receiver should not be changed
during any one set of adjustments. The adjustment of the iron
cores must be made with the cover opened, and during the reading
of the output meter the loop must be in normal position (the cover
of the receiver must be closed). `
For the oscillator adjustment, it is advisable to use the method
of "wanding" the radio loop antenna. f'Wanding" is the pro-
cedure where more or less gain will be indicated by an increase
or decrease in output meter readings when a shorted one-turn
loop (approximately 10 in. by 5 in.) is coupled to the radio antenna
loop. If a gain is indicated, we have to increase the inductance
by screwing in the iron core of the oscillator coil.T6. In a similar
manner, a field of powdered iron cores may be coupled to the
loop. In this case a gain would indicate that the oscillator
inductance must be decreased. When no gain is apparent with
either the shorted tum wand or the iron field wand, the adjust-
ment of the oscillator iron core is peaked.
After the alignment of the oscillator, the r-f transformer T1
should be aligned as follows:
1. The signal is fed over the loop coupled to the radio antenna
loop with cover closed. Note the output meter reading.
2. Open the back cover and tum the tuning slug of T1 approxi-
mately M tum clockwise.
3. Close the back cover and note the new output meter reading.
If it has increased, continue to tum the core in the same
direction; if it has decreased, reverse the direction. Repeat
this procedure until a definite maximum reading is obtained.
the reading of a meter connected across the voice coil leads of the ,ALIGNMENT CHART

The following paragraphs give greater details regarding the setting output
