I.F 456 Kcs.
RF 1500 Kcs,
Connect output meter across the voice coil. Turn the receiver volume control to maximum. Connect high side of the alignment oscillator, through a 05 mfd. capacitor, to the converter grid.
Set alignment oscillator at 456 Kcs. and adjust output to give the lowest conveniently readable indication on the output meter. Adjust trimmers C-7 and C-8 in 2nd 1. F. transformer to give maximum indication on output meter. Repeat this procedure for trimmers C-5 and C-6 in the 1st I.F. transformer. Repeat procedure to check accuracy. R.F. Alignment:
Retain output meter connected as above and receiver volume control set at maximum. Connect alignment oscillator to antenna.
Set alignment oscillator at 1500 Kcs. and place in operation. Rotate receiver tuning capacitor (C - 1 and C-3) to give maximum signal indication on output meter. Adjust output of alignment oscillator to give the lowest conveniently readable indication on the output meter. Adjust oscillator trimmer C-4 to peak the signal indication on output meter. Then, adjust antenna trimmer C-2 to further peak the signal. Repeat procedure to check accuracy.
Trimmer locations are shown in Figure 1.
Socket Terminal Voltages (Bottom View)
An electronic voltmeter may be connected to the AVC bus and used for alignment indication in lieu of the output meter across the voice coil.
An electronic voltmeter or a voltmeter with a minimum resistance of 20,000 ohms per volt should be used for voltage measurements.
The polarity of the power connection must be correct when operating the receiver on direct current. If the receiver does not operate when the power plug is first inserted, remove and re-insert in opposite position, Reversal of plug position on alternating current supply may reduce hum in some cases. CAT TION:
A direct ground connection should not be placed on the receiver at any time. Particular care should be exercised when removing and replacing chassis to in sure that the insulators between chassis and cabinet are in position and that the insulation is complete and effective.
