Grantline Models 605, 606 Schematic & Parts List

November 1946 Radio & Television News Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio & Television News, published 1919-1959. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

A schematic and parts list for the Grantline models 605 and 606 tabletop AM radios appeared in a 1946 issue of Radio News magazine. It is a 6-tuber with pushbutton tuning. Molded Bakelite housings were popular in the day because complex curves with a smooth surface could easily be accommodated, and usually a variety of colors were available. This white one appears on YouTube. A few pages from the Sams Photofact data packet showed up on eBay, so I did a screen capture of them for your convenience. 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. A running list of all data sheets can be found at the bottom of the page.

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 227 Radio Service Data Sheets as of December 28, 2020.
