The Fine Things are Always Hand Made
The serial number is CC233. I also found a date stamped inside of the chassis that reads October 12th, 1937.
I am not sure if my post actually worked, but I got my Model16 up and running, just needs alignment.Serial # JJ-176, Acoustacraft also, same cabinet as my Phantom.
Is the I F frequency 465kc?
Next is the Allwave I have with a great cabinet and poor chrome.
yes - 465 KC per Scott documentation.
Select INFO ARCHIVE at top of this page, then select SET FOLDERS, and select 16-18 (for the model 16).
Review and/or print the Service Manual. If you don't have the owner's instruction manual, print it too.
Well last night I finished the last few .05 caps, the 2 MFD can, and the can with the 4 .5 caps in it. Sensitivity is just amazing with this set and my wavemagnet antenna. There was a slight hum that wouldnt go away until reading about certain tubes and spiral heaters. After replacing a metal 6k7 and a metal 6j5 with the old style, the hum is gone and this thing is perfect!
I "scan the bands" periodically with mine and also listen to some AM broadcasts on. They are excellent radios. Eventually I'll get my Acousticraft cabinet restored so that I can get the radio and speaker in their proper place. That should enhance the sound considerably. Happy to hear that all is well.
The later production Model 16's have a hum adjustment pot on the amp near the rectifier tubes.
