A kind soul gave me this Allied A-2515:
The AF and RF gain pots were so dirty and scratchy that it would hardly play, but I soaked them down with tuner spray and it now plays pretty well. On most of the bands the stations are just a touch off of where they should be on the dial, so I would like to align it. There are quite a few trimmers that are accessable from the bottom, but I don't know which ones do what, so before I start futzing with them I'd like to know which ones do what. Can anyone tell me or point to me to site that explains the alignment of this set?
And I got this Regency World Traveler for $5 at a yard sale:
It was dead, but after I replaced a fuse and the electrolitic caps it came to life. The dial on it is also a little off, so same deal, can anyone tell me how to alignment on it.
I do have a signal generator that's pretty close to being in alignment, but if I knew what trimmers do what I think I could use WWV and some other known stations to tweak it into alignment. And I also have a 100 kc crystal and a 500kc crystal that I could use to build a frequency standard if someone can point me to a good schematic.
