RCA-Victor Radiola "Superette" Model R7 (radiomuseum.org) - RF CafeThis Radio Service Data Sheet for the RCA-Victor Radiola "Superette" Model R7 Superheterodyne was published in the August 1931 issue of Radio-Craft magazine. The Model R7 is a tabletop, or "mantel," radio set that is the first of its kind for RCA-Victor. It is fairly large at 14 x 19 x 10 inches, and weighs 37 pounds, per data on the RadioMuseum.org website.

The circuit of this receiver is of particular interest, as being the first of the mantel radio sets brought out by these companies. It is seen, by reference to the diagram below, that this superheterodyne uses a limited number of tubes, in the following manner: One stage of signal-frequency R.F., V1, using the new type '35 variable-mu tube; a type '27 as oscillator, V2; a '24 screen-grid first-detector V3; a type '35 variable-mu first stage of I.F. amplification, V4; a type '27 power second detector, V5; push-pull '45's, V6, V7, in the power A.F. circuit; and the usual '80 rectifier V8.

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 222 Radio Service Data Sheets as of July 10, 2019.

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 World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
