Crosley Model 555 (A.F.M.) 5-Tube 2-Band Superhet. Radio Service Data Sheet, March 1936 Radio-Craft - RF CafeThis is another Radio Service Data Sheet that appeared in the March 1936 edition of Radio-Craft magazine. I post this schematic and functional description of the Crosley Model 555 (A.F.M.) 5-Tube 2-Band Superhet radio manufacturers' publications for the benefit of hobbyists and archivists who might be searching for such information either in a effort to restore a radio to working condition, or to collect archival information. As mentioned previously, manufacturers usually did not provide this data to anyone other than an authorized service shop, so making it available via the magazine was a huge benefit to repair shops and do-it-yourselfers. Unfortunately, not very much textual content was included with the schematic. It was part of a group of seven different models (see table of contents), and not much more than the schematic was provided for each. Images of the Crosley 555 were gotten from a recent eBay listing (sold for $49.99).

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.
