Morning all,
I am looking for a circuit diagram for the 441A radio. The copy I have is "a copy of a copy of a copy...". Much of the finer detail is blurred and unreadable which makes component identification difficult. Failing eyesight doesn't help. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you.

GTC,
Thanks for the lead. Have obtained a copy; a bit fuzzy but I will see what I can make of it.
Kind regards,
Trevor.

There is a circuit & voltage chart in AORSMs its readable but the way they have presented the switches is somewhat of a horror story & I would strongly suggest coloured pencils, should you need to follow it.

Marcc,
Thanks for the info. The problem I have is getting access to AORSM's. Both the local library and I have applied to interstate library services (which advertise that they have AORSM's) but thus far they are not making the documents available via inter library loans (I am located in regional WA). If libraries don't loan books then why hold them in the first place???

Thanks again,
Trevor.
