This model is a superheterodyne receiver for regular radio broadcast reception, using latest tow drain tubes for low power consumption. A self-contained antenna loop is incorporated which makes the use of an outside antenna unnecessary in most localities. It will function on 105 to 125 volts, 40-60 cycles AC, or 105 to 125 volts DC, A range of 540 to 1600 kilocycles is covered by the receiver.
1. Make certain that all tubes are in their proper place and sit secure in their sockets. A sketch, showing their location will be found on this sheet. To exchange tubes, remove the antenna loop by unscrewing the 2 lower screws on the wooden bracket.
2. If found that additional radio signal pick-up is required than is obtained by the inbuilt antenna loop, it is advisable to attach an outdoor aerial to the Aexible lead, extended from said loop aotcoda.
The knob on the left hand side is the power switch and volume control. When the control is in the extreme counter-clockwise position the power is " off. " From this position, a slight clockwise rota. tion turns the power " on, " and rotating the knob in this direction will increase the volume until full output is obtained.
