This schematic diagram and parts list for the Truetone model D2616 radio was published in the November 1946 issue of Radio News magazine. It is a very modern (at the time) tabletop design sporting a smooth, shiny white phenolic chassis, equipped with Truetone Stratoscope technology. Both RCA (Radio Corporation of America) and Hazeltine patents are noted. Truetone was the branded name used by Western Auto. The photos here are from a recent eBay auction where the winner paid a mere $79.99 (I have Archive.org save the page for the sake of posterity). It is in incredibly good condition for an 80 year old radio that does not appear to have been reconditioned. 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. I will keep a running list of all data sheets to facilitate a search.

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.
