Sears, Roebuck & Co., Silvertone "Rocket" Model 6110 - RF Cafe

Sears, Roebuck & Co., Silvertone "Rocket" Models 6110 (invaluable.com images)

In 1938, the designers at Sears, Roebuck & Company's, Silvertone radio division were truly thinking "outside the box" when they came up with this "Rocket" model 6110. It is an ultra compact tabletop design with a unique rounded top and a huge tuning dial that comprised one entire end of the Bakelite cabinet, along with a set of six pushbuttons for station recall. There were only four vacuum tubes in the signal path so it was probably not the the highest quality sound or tuning selectivity. The "Rocket" nomenclature certainly fit its futuristic looks. The Tube Radio Land website has a good description of the radio. The world was fascinated with rockets at the time, being just a decade since Robert Goddard conducted his first liquid fueled rocket launch in 1926. 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, so I post these Radio Service Data Sheets like this one from the January 1939 issue of Radio-Craft magazine.

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.
