Majestic Model 50 radio on eBay - RF CafeGrigsby-Grunow produced radios under the trade name of "Majestic." The Majestic Model 50 is a tabletop, vacuum tube, superheterodyne radio receiver of the popular 'tombstone' configuration. The example to the left is from an eBay listing.

Majestic "Models 50," "51" and "52"

The Model 50" chassis is used in the "Model 52" Majestic superheterodyne ; removing the legs from the small cabinet, thus making a radio set of the mantel type, results in the "Model 51" receiver. This circuit is one of the latest developments of the Grigsby-Grunow Company, Chicago, Ill.

Next, tune in a 600-kc. signal and adjust the tracking condenser C6, while slightly rocking the tuning condenser knob from side to side, until maximum signal strength is obtained.

The manufacturers advise that under no conditions should an attempt be made to use a ground connection on the antenna binding post.

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.
