Hi All

Chasing down a service manual for the AWA B87 series Radiogram. From what I can tell it has a few in the range....

Thanks

Valve radios, They just don't make them like they used to

Hi

Yep something like that... Don't normally work on 70's transistor equipment. I received it with the statement that the radio stopped but the gram works!

I am unsure how to start to pull the radio part out.

Can't find anything in the usual places.

Going by the entries on Radiomuseum, member Sirwin might possibly have access to applicable documentation.
