Chart of Radio Schematic Symbols

December 1942 Radio-Craft

December 1942 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.

This is a really nice electronic schematic symbols chart that will come in handy for hobbyists who work with vintage electronic equipment. Not only does it have component symbols that a modern chart (this appeared in a 1942 issue of Radio−Craft magazine) would not likely contain, but it has three-dimensional sketches of each device. For example, vacuum tube symbols show the tube outline, its socket configuration, and the pinout. If you get nostalgic for some of these old parts, some of them like the knife blade switch and ceramic light socket can be bought a many hardware stores or online. It's too bad the chart is not in color because it would make a nice picture to frame for a decoration. If anyone with an artistic bent feels compelled to colorize it and send it to me, I'll be glad to make it available to visitors. If you use Visio or any of the Microsoft Office software, you might benefit from my custom RF & Electronics Stencils for Visio and RF & Electronics Symbols for Office.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
