Zenith Chassis No. 5634 (RadioMuseum.org) - RF CafeI have been scanning and posting Radio Service Data Sheets like this one featuring the Zenith 6-Tube All-Wave Superheterodyne Chassis No. 5634 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 Zenith Chassis No. 5634 came from the RadioMuseum.org website.

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.
