January 1935 Radio Craft Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio-Craft, published 1929 - 1953. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

Pilot Model 63 (RadioMuseum.com) - RF CafeRadio Service Data Sheets were published by various electronics trade magazines back in the early to middle decades of the last century. SAMS Photofact document sets were published on just about every appliance made, and those had much more detail than these briefs. However, for the low-budget repair shop or the do-it-yourselfer, the Radio Service Data Sheets were a godsend. I have been scanning, cleaning up, and posting all the ones I find in my vintage electronics magazine collection. See a complete list at the bottom.

Many fine examples of restored vintage radios can be found on the Internet. The Pilot Model 63 shown above appears on the RadioMuseum.com website.

Pilot Model 63 All-Wave 6-Tube Superheterodyne

The power consumption of this set is 70 W.; the undistorted power output is 3 W. If it becomes necessary to realign the set, be sure to reconnect the speaker cable to the receiver after having removed the chassis from its cabinet, before connecting to power line.

To align broadcast band, connect service oscillator to antenna and ground posts, turn range switch to "Broadcast," and align oscillator, interstage and antenna trimmers at 1,400 kc.; and oscillator padder at 600 kc. Repeat procedure. Rock tuning control while aligning padder.

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.
