This receiver designed for high-fidelity phono­graph, as well as radio reproduction has a "Phantom Control" (second from the left - see front view of chassis for positions of controls) which permits turning in either the (position B). Automatic Frequency Control alone, which holds the receiver tuned to the strongest signal within 20 kc., or both the A.F.C. and the Phantom Conductor Tube. V11 (position C). The feature of the Phantom Conductor tube is that it contains 2 resistors with such a thermal characteristic that, when connected across the speaker voice coil, it increases the volume of loud tones. This is particularly designed to compensate for the limitations of broadcasting equipment, which cannot give full volume to the loudest passages, and should have the same effect with phonograph music. When this control is at position A, neither A.F.C. (the "Mystic Hand") nor Phantom Conductor is operative. This permits operation with normal power output and fidelity. The fidelity control is incorporated with the power switch. The volume control operates on both A.F. grids (V5, V6). The band-selector switch operates also a tone filter.

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 220 Radio Service Data Sheets as of February 2, 2018.
