Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio & Television News, published 1919-1959. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

These six schematics and parts lists were published in a 1946 issue of Radio News magazine. Included models are the Hoffman Model A300, the Emerson Model 505, the Olympic Models 6-501, 6-502, 6-503, the Radiola Models 61-5, 61-10, the Farnsworth Models ET-060, ET-061, ET-063, and the General Electric Model 321. All are tabletop models. Many, if not all, of these radios can be found on eBay  eventually - maybe even right now. In fact, all of the thumbnail images shown below were just pulled from eBay listings.

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.
