That's an excellent guide, I really like the block diagram.

There is if you Google it, I had a quick look, but you may have to pay for a download.

Also, there is data in the library here, but have a little read of the Rules section first.

When I first got a set of Radio & Television Servicing books I used to read them in bed, all good information to absorb. Not only that, a couple of them under my pillow helped a bad neck on one occasion, and that's true !

When I first got a set of Radio & Television Servicing books I used to read them in bed, all good information to absorb.

So did I!

I used to look at the early stuff in the local library's reference section back in the 70s in between copying details of stuff I was repairing for schoolfriends and their families, and I wondered what all these old radios must have looked like.

When I got my first volumes, I then spent ages building up the set to the complete set I have today; then I was ably assisted by a now sadly defunct company called Chevet Books (run by a lovely chap called Gerald Myers), whose second-hand technical book catalogues and lists I used to eagerly await; there were always R&TS, Wireless World bound volumes, all manner of wonderful stuff contained within. They also occasionally offered radio sets and parts for sale too.

Happy days.
