Crosley Roamio 4-A-1 Radio Schematic, June 1935 Radio-Craft - RF Cafe

Crosley Roamio 4-A-1 Radio (RadioMuseom.org)

The Crosley Roamio 4-A-1 was an automotive radio set that mounted under the cowl section of the car, with the dial visible below the instrument panel. Thereby, the lid is easily removable for convenient service. Its schematic, along with a brief functional description, was published in the June 1935 issue of Radio-Craft magazine. Although I have not seen it mentioned anywhere, I'm guessing the name "Roamio" is a play on "Romeo," with the "roam" part alluding to its mobile nature. A couple photos of the Crosley Roamio were found on the RadioMuseum.org website. The circuit features a self-rectifying vibrator "B" unit used in the power supply of this receiver, which generates an alternating current necessary to achieve voltage step-up transformation. High gain in this receiver has been achieved through the use of high efficiency R.F. and I.F. coils.

A self-rectifying vibrator - "B" unit is used in the power supply of this receiver. High gain in this receiver has been achieved through the use of high-efficiency R.F. and I.F. coils. This set mounts under the cowl section of the car, with the dial visible below the instrument panel. Thereby, the lid is easily removable for convenient service. Voltages: Plate - V1, 230; (Osc., 60); V2, 230; V3, 60; V4, 220; Sup.-G. - V4, 3. S.G. - V1, 100; V2, 100; V3, 25; V4, 230. Cath.-V1, 8; V2, 3; V4, 3; V5, 16. All voltages should be plus or minus 10 per cent, and measured to chassis with 500 volt 1000 ohms per-volt voltmeter.

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.
