I am working on a Philco 38-12.<P>There is a 1 meg resistor across the volume pot. Volume pot is 500K.<BR>The resistor does not look original, nor is it featured in the schematic. Any idea what it might be doing there?<P>------------------<BR>-Mike

Hi Mike<P> It's not necessary for the circuit. Maybe someone replaced the volume control with a higher resistance one? <P> Be sure coupling cap .01 mfd (#15) from control to 1st audio stage has been replaced. A resistor like this would help load the AVC line and make up for a leaky coupling cap?<P>------------------<BR>Norm

The volume control appears to be original. It is the correct 500K anyway.<P>All the paper caps are original, so perhaps the new resistor was to compensate for a leaky cap.<P>------------------<BR>-Mike
