Shows a design fault area of the 122 Aust that is hard

to locate;

Fault: BFO refuses to oscillate.

Problem : the design should have used a 500K resistor.

Factory used a 1Meg resistor,and ageing results in 2Meg.

= 4x spec'; so it doesn't get enough plate voltage.

R1D is hidden in the wax; and is inside "L8A"

[more ww2 radio technicians are needed in South Australia- email me -  tosty@internode.on.net ]

Currently my workload is basically 7 days a week, and overloaded. Curently there is room

for about another 10 technical workshops, and Cutomers come in through email, phone, and

letterbox...   sending a radio by freight that can be organised quickly by me or another repairer

is often 2/3  or as low as half the price of the standard carrier. Signature delivery and packing

quality are important, with front panel padding extra.

most of the  manuals scanned are done in fairly high resolution JPG format. 

Very importantly: some internet users are on slow download or restricted data . This is one of the

reasons why my website is favouring the simple single page download. Although some of the files are

PDF, they were not created here. the have just been copied.  The files remain online , with temporary

outages only. If you can see where you need to download a page, or just view a page, you can find it

faster from a list.  If you wish to download a folder etc, you can get the computer to do it for you.

If you want a great image viewer , try my favourite: ACDSEE32   [32 bit ] that can be used on any

32 bit  1995 ish  computer or newer...  

 pic or 2 by email, or a CD at cost of the plastic+post      tosty@internode.on.net   just email me ...

I am not making any money from the scans.  I have many manuals available, but due to a lack of time

available, I have not posted a list.so please email me if you are looking for info on an Australian

WW2 Military radio that is fairly well known. I will eventually try to get a copy of every type of

Australian WW2 Military radio scanned.  I have unscanned manuals - and I am prepared to scan

them at short notice to get it to you - so send me an email.    Maximum delay is about 2 to 3 days.

Download a WW2 Australian Army Radio Manual: [ the posted ones below are going to vary ]
