I think I found my radio on Radiomuseum, but I cannot access a larger version of the schematic to give to my guy that is working on my radio. I think it requires me to pay to have that info, and I'm just not going to utilize that site much to have to pay to have access to the schematic. The radio in question is here: https://www.radiomuseum.org/r/us_radio_80.html

Is anyone here able to get me this schematic that is in a readable size so I can email it to my repair guy?

Thanks.

Karen

Karen, here is the power-pack voltages that I doodled... :). a few weeks back.
I think they are correct... :shock:

The same schematic (without component values) was published By Hugo Gernsback in...
Radio Service Manual, Volume one, available to download here...
http://www.americanradiohistory.com/Hugo_Gernsback.htm 37.9MB

...with a few chapters on general servicing procedures.

Greg.

Edit: As posted by Cliff above. Lol

Schematic access on Radiomuseum is no charge/membership required, subject to a couple of restrictions:
(1) no more than three sheets may be downloaded in a 24 hour period; and (2) you may download a maximum of ten sheets in any 30-day period.

To obtain a readable Radiomuseum copy, pull up the model that you want (per the link that you supplied in your OP). Move your mouse cursor over the small image of the schematic in the upper right pane and click the left mouse button. The image will appear, much enlarged (but not entirely visible), in the main viewing pane. Move the mouse cursor over to any where on the main viewing pane and left click again. This will take you to the "download" manager page. Fill out the requested info (your name and email address) and click the "I'm Not a Robot" box, then click on the rectangular gray "Request for a Document" box. You will be asked to solve a "Capcha" photo puzzle to ensure that you are not a robot that is mining data. The file will be emailed in PDF format to the address that you supplied. You will need an Adobe Acrobat PDF file viewer (also a freebie) to examine it.

Is not it amazing the availability of schematics and other documentation today. I recall back in 1960 I was going to open a radio tv repair shop. The cost of SAMS setup was more than I could handle unless I got a loan. So I got a job. Everything turned out fine no complaints. Today all a person in old radio repair (and other types repair) has to for the most part is hit the web or the customer up for the data.
