I was wondering if any members of the forum might have scanned copies of blank original radio logs for AK two and three dialers? If not, is there somewhere I can get them. I would be willing to pay a reasonable fee.

I have a log for a 35, which I can scan if you are interested.
Shoot me a PM with your email if you want it.

Dan,

Just an idea, assuming the radio will be operational, consider creating your own log using Excel or LibreOffice. The ebay listing is an idea base. If the radio is a three-dial extra columns could be added and a modern "Khz" tag.

Laser printed on card stock should look just fine.

Once created a log for Browning-Drake, two dial. In the form of loose leaf with the last page having a frequency vs. dial setting curves. Made the radio much easier to select a desired station...

Should you ever find a 20's console with a table, some are fitted with a writing shelf or a location for a log...

Another option. Take an existing log with entries, scan it, then edit it to remove the entries, clean up the graphics in paint or photoshop, and print.

I have a log that came with my recently acquired A-K 44.
I may try it, and if it works, I will let you know.

I have them but it will take time finding. Make copies on file folders. Color and thickness of file folders is about right.

Hi Dan,

I'll send you an original and you can scan as many copies as you wish.

PM me your mailing address.

Russ sent me a digital copy for a single dial, thanks Russ. What I need is the log form that has columns labeled for taps 1,2 and 3 for two and three dialers.

Dan (and all)

Could I get a copy (scan) of those too? I have some one and two dial AK's and I would love to have those with my sets if I could.

I have a torn up AK envelope that originally held a card, but it was empty when I found it in a set.

I can PM you my email address, if you can help.

Travis

I have purchased some replica "antique paper" for the forms. I think my printers will have trouble with the thickness of file folders.

I've found and purchased an unused Atwater Kent Radio Log with the three tap columns. When I receive it I will scan it and send it to Vane Warner over at the atwaterkentradio.com website, he will get it posted so anyone can download it. I will also send it to anyone here interested in a copy.

I received the three dialer AK log card that I purchased today. If you would like an electronic copy PM me with your email and I will send a scan to you.

FYI - The actual card is about twice the thickness of a manila folder.

I made a copy of the log on antique paper and another on manila folder. Norm's way comes out better, looks very close to original. Thanks Norm.
