Hi, I have a International receiver that corresponds to Riders Page 3-2 International, JS receiver. Undertaking repair I find a 5 pin tube socket that appears factory installed that is stand alone off the chassis. That is, it has the independent socket with 4 inch or so wires leaving the enclosed socket and threaded thru a rubber sealed opening aside the likewise sealed power cord opening on the chassis. The schematic shows main chassis has sockets for KR1/IV; 38: 36: 39. Altho I cannot access the enclosed off-chassis socket, the five wires connect to common negative; #1,#2,#3 pins of 38 tube, and #1 36 tube. I am totally lost as to the function or necessity of this tube/socket for repair. I thank you for any help with this mystery! I do have iPhone pictures but I am at a lost how to post them. It has been some time since I have been on this forum. Thanks. phil

To Egg,
Thanks for your reply, and still challenged on getting photo to this post. I ended up with the above and I am not sure if folks can download it. I am 73 years old and a practical idiot in terms of computer knowledge! phil

73 around these parts is considered a youngster... :)

When logged in, at the bottom of any of your postings, you can edit that posting.
You can remove (or change) some of your multiple photos above if you wish.

Greg.
oh... I've added the correct schematic pages to my earlier post.

Model JS (same page) is a five-tube radio.
Your model is Kadette.
39 36 38 KR1

Your mysterious "connector" may be for a car hook-up?

Read→ https://www.radiomuseum.org/r/inter_raco_kadette.html

"The switch on the rear of the chassis is a band-switch that selects between the BC and LW bands, although the schematic does not show such a switch, nor does the schematic show the connector on the rear of the chassis which may have been used to allow operation from an automobile".

See Tom's comments here...

Greg,
Thanks for the reply, and I appreciate the coaching on editing a post. However, revisiting my member page & what I thought was the original post, I could not see anyway to edit after having posted. Again, weak with the computer skills...even at the young age of 73!!!

And thanks for your effort to run down the historic comments about the radio, and the reasonable speculation that the added socket allowed connection to another item such as a vehicle. That seems reasonable since it looks to connect primarily to the output 38 tube. The photo shown is the exact kadette set I am hoping to repair. You man not know that set has the original & early outside horseshoe magnet style speaker...pretty rare indeed!

Lastly, I am impressed with your memory & navigation skills to run down all that background for me, and at the end of the day, that added socket should have no impact on my repair. Again, thanks much! phil

Just look at the posts you have made here (not on your member page). They should have an edit button in the lower right corner. You won't see that option in other people's posts, just
your own.

Dale,
Thanks for the instructions, and I almost was successful. I could not see how to delete one of the last two pictures without possibly deleting both. Thus, just decided to leave well enough alone leaving two photos for those with "double vision"! Thanks again. phil

That set had versions for auto use and for use on a boat as well as 110v AC or DC.
