For many years I have been scanning and posting Radio Service Data
Sheets like this one featuring the Admiral "Aeroscope" 161−5L, 162−5L,
and 163−5L Midget Set models which appeared in a 1939 issue of
Radio−Craft magazine. 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. Some websites offer to sell this information, but
often what is shown here is enough to get an old radio working again since most
times both schematics and alignment steps are included. I keep a running list of all data sheets to facilitate
a search (see below).
