General Electric C-62 Tabletop Radio - RF CafeThe General Electric C-62 radio was (is) a battery-operated tabletop model. No photos of actual radios could be found online, but the thumbnail to the left of an advertisement appears on the RadioMuseum.org website. Two 67.5 V "B" batteries provided power. You would be forgiven for believing such batteries are no longer available today since nowadays the most familiar types are 1.2 V and 1.5 V "A," "C," and "D" cells, and the 9 V "transistor radio" battery - which should be renamed the "smoke detector battery" since few pocket-type transistor radios remain. Less prominent in the retail venue but ubiquitous in electronics and power tools are the Nx3.7 V Li-Po batteries. If you want to get a good idea of the vast selection of battery shapes and voltages available, visit a website like Battery Central Mall. BTW, if you buy batteries online, please do so via this Amazon.com link so that I earn a commission (does not affect your price).

The low-current pilot light is a feature of this set. A 4-pole switch controls all battery circuits. The total "A" drain is 0.45-A.; "B", 15 ma. Maximum undistorted output, 0.7-W. Align at 1,400 and 600 kc. Tube voltages and current are measured to ground, with no signal and R7 at maximum. (*) Cannot be measured with ordinary voltmeter; obtained by means of high-resist­ance bleeders across a 22.5 V. "C" battery. (**) Oscillator C.-G.,-; S.-G.; Pl. V., 135; Pl. Ma., 1.8. The 600 kc. padding condenser is available from the rear of the chassis. Fuses, 0.5-A.

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