CALIBRATION 0F 4TH BAND (Il-20 Megacyclesl-Beiore at-
tempting any calibration of this band it will be necessary to deter-
mine the oscillator tracking. Some models were produced in which
the oscillator beats SLOWER than the incoming signal. This is not
the usual mode oi operation but was used tor more uniform track-
ing. in other production series the oscillator beats taster than the
incoming signal. which is the usual method oi operation.

To determine which model your set is. proceed as follows:
Place service oscillator in operation at 15 meqacycles. Tune signal
in on set. ii oscillator BEATS SLOWER. the real signal will come in
at 15 megacycles and the image will come in at 15.915. i.e. The
image will be almost 1 meqacycle iaster than the true signal.
It oscillator BEATS FASTER, the real signal will come in at 15
megacycles and the image will come in at 14.084 megacycles, i.e..
almost 1 megacycle slower than the incoming signal. Alter having
determined which oscillator tracking is used in your set be sure
to keep this setting. i.e.. either taster or slower. as determined.

Place service oscillator in operation at 20 meqacycles. 'l'urn set
dial to 20 meqacycles. Adjust oscillator to a point taster or slower.
