Stewart-Warner Model 03-5A Senior Varsity Radio (RadioAttic.com) - RF CafeI have been scanning and posting Radio Service Data Sheets like this one featuring the Stewart-Warner Model 03-5A Senior Varsity Radio receiver for many years now. There are still many people who restore and service these vintage radios, and often it can be difficult or impossible to find schematics and/or tuning information. The thumbnail image of the Stewart-Warner Model 03-5A Senior Varsity Radio came from the RadioAttic.com website.

(3) Turn the volume control to the maximum volume position and leave it in this position throughout the entire alignment pro­cedure.

(4) To Calibrate the Dial - Remove the chassis from the cabinet and set it on a fiat surface (insulated from ground). With the gang in full mesh, the last dial division (just below 55) on the low-frequency end, should be exactly 4% inches above the table surface. If this is not the case, release the set­screw in the collar which connects the gang condenser shaft with the tuning unit, and holding the gang in full mesh, turn the dial until the last division is exactly 4% inches above the table surface. Now re-tighten the setscrew in the collar. The 4% inch division on the ruler (when measured vertically from table

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 219 Radio Service Data Sheets as of November 15, 2017.
