Photographs of some - maybe even most - of the vintage vacuum tube radios are difficult or even impossible to find online. This Knight Model E10913 tabletop radio manufactured by Allied Radio Corporation is an example. When I post these Radio Service Data Sheets from magazines like Radio-Craft, I always attempt to find a photo of a restored radio or at lease a one in decent condition. Websites like The Radio Attic and Radio Museum have large inventories of photos, schematics, and sometimes a description and company history. eBay and Etsy are also a good place to look. 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. Accordingly, a running list of all data sheets is at the bottom to facilitate a search. Most radio service shop technicians were able to troubleshoot and align these simple sets without any kind of documentation.

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.
