Unlike with the Kolster K-20 radio, whose Radio Service Data Sheet I also just posted, I could not find a photo of this Columbia Screen Grid 8 (SG-8) radio. If you have found this page because you have a Columbia SG-8 and are restoring it, please consider sending me a photo for posting.

Columbia Screen-Grid 8 (SG-8) Receiver

There are 220 Radio Service Data Sheets as of February 2, 2018.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
