Installation-Operation Instructions `
Specifications
Power Supply: 105-120 volts, 50-60 cycles.
CAUTION: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPPRATE ON OTHER SUPPLY.
Power Consumption: 130 watts.
Type of Circuit: Superheterodyne.
Intermediate Frequencies: AM 13,55 kc. I
Pointer Travel: 9".
Tuning Knob Ratio: 1811.
Antenna Impedance: Broadcast - Standard
F M ~ 300 ohms
Nominal Performance
Approximately 10 microvolts for 30 db quieting on FM.
Audio Fidelity: Flat witrin i2 db from 100 to 10,000 cycles, tone con-
Band Width at 1000 kc - 7 kc at 2X down.
Output: 8 watts at 5% distortion.
Tone Control Action:
Bass boost at to cycles plus ld db.
Treble suppression at 5,000 cycles - 13 db.
Hum: 58 db below full output, full bass boost (on phono).
Antenna - Ground
There is a 5 terminal strip near the back of the chassis for connection
to the FM antenna, AM antenna, and ground. the FM antenna may be indoors
or outdoors, preferably of the folded dipole type. The two left-hand ter-
minals marked FM are for connection of the twin lead 300 ohm transmission
line from the FM antenna.
A separate AM antenna may be used by connecting to the AN antenna ter-
/`~ minal at the right, or me PM antenna and transmission line may be used as
the AM antenna. This is done by connecting a jumper wire between terminal
X and the AN antenna terminal.
A heavy ground connection, as short as possible, should be connected to
the ground terminal at the center. Cold water pipes or a galvanized rod
driven several feet into the ground make good grounds, but the use of hot
water, steam pipes, or metal conduit should be avoided. The use of a good
ground connection will do much to minimize the pickup of electrical inter-
ference carried into the tuner by way of the power line.
Tone Controls
Bass: 18 db control at to cycles, 12 db at 100 cycles.
f` Treble: lO db control at 0000 cycles, 15 db at 10,000 cycles.
