Retrofit kits for adding shortwave bands to commercial broadcast band radios were a big deal back in the 1930s. Magazines like Radio-Craft were full of articles and advertisements for such kits. Few layman radio owners were capable of installing the conversion kits, so radio service shops took in a lot of business installing them. A large percentage of radio models soon thereafter began shipping with the shortwave bands incorporated into the base unit - known as 'all-wave' radios. This Majestic Model 11 Short-Wave Converter is a prime example of the kits. My 1941 Crosley Model 03CB vacuum tube console radio has shortwave bands, as does my 1970s vintage Magnavox 789 transistorized radio.

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.
