Arvin Model 182TFM ( - RF CafeThis 'drive-by' schematic and parts list for the Arvin Model 182TFM vacuum tube radio appeared in the February 1948 issue of Radio News magazine. I refer to them as 'drive-by' because there was no description or maintenance verbiage provided. The Arvin 182TFM is a tabletop radio that covered both AM and FM bands - a relative rarity in the 1940s. The thumbnail at the left is from the website - a great source for research on vintage vacuum tube radios.

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.
