Basic Radio Repair - Vol. 1 & 2 - Vintage Servicing For Sale

Basic Radio Repair - Vol. 1 & 2 - Vintage Servicing

Up for sale in CD-ROM format are thoseclassic hard-to-find booksentitled "Basic Radio Repair - Volumes 1 &2" by Marvin Tepper, a John F. Rider Publication (1963).

PREFACE

Knowledge of radio receiver and transmitter circuits is one part of the job. An equally important part is to be able to apply this knowledge to the maintenance and repair of defective receivers or transmitters. These books are presented in a manner calculated to best instill a common-sense approach to servicing. Too often the author has observed good knowledge of circuits being wasted by a complete lack of an approach, or a poor approach to circuit troubleshooting and repair.

The context of these books reflects an application of practical servicing procedures. The approach is to illustrate by a combination of words and pertinent artwork, as close an approximation as possible of repair techniques as they would actually be done on a workbench.

Starting as a single volume, it soon became apparent that there was more to say than could be covered in a single book. Rather than weaken its value the contents were expanded and placed in two volumes, allowing coverage of all phases of radio receiver and transmitter servicing.

The contents are carefully laid out. Beginning with an exhaustive discussion of the test equipment used in servicing, it goes into a complete discourse on significant aspects of different components. The next section thoroughly covers a most important subject, servicing procedures. No one servicing technique is favored-all are covered equally. The approach to superheterodyne receiver servicing was carefully set up to closely approximate the approach taken when actually serving a receiver. Servicing of each circuit is taken in the order most likely to be followed during actual receiver repairs. This also holds true for the chapters on portable, automobile, and FM receivers.

It was felt that to try and combine discussions of equivalent tube and transistor circuits side by side would be confusing. Accordingly a completely separate discussion is used on transistor receivers, allowing full concentration on servicing procedures peculiar to these receivers.

The final section, transmitter servicing, covers a neglected area. Previously very little has been written on this subject. The approach and coverage has been unstinting, covering all types of circuits, including FM and single sideband.
