Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio-Craft, published 1929 - 1953. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

Clarion 5 Tube Model 423 (RadioMuseum.org photo) - RF CafeFor many years I have been scanning and posting Radio Service Data Sheets like this one featuring the Clarion 5 Tube Model 423; 6 Tube 470, 471 and 472; and 10 Tube 480 radio. This appeared in a 1934 issue of Radio-Craft magazine. As with the articles, OCR (optical character recognition) is run on them to separate the textual content and make it searchable. There are still many people who restore and service these vintage radios, and often it can be difficult or impossible to find schematics and/or tuning information. I will keep a running list of all data sheets to facilitate a search. Clarion 5 Tube Model 423 photo above was found on the RadioMuseum.org website.

Radio Service Data Sheets

These schematics, tuning instructions, and other data are reproduced from my collection of vintage radio and electronics magazines. As back in the era, similar schematic and service info was available for purchase from sources such as SAMS Photofacts, but these printings were a no-cost bonus for readers. There are 227 Radio Service Data Sheets as of December 28, 2020.
