I just picked up a Sharp Multi Band Deluxe; Model FV-1800A radio recently and cannot find much information on it. I would like to fina a Service Manual or schematic as well as any other information. If any of the Forum members have this radio and/or have any information to share, I would be most grateful. I have attached a picture to aid in the model identification.
Thanks Much!!

That model shows up as being listed in Sams TSM-151. I don't have it. You seem to find some of the neatest radios,

I just got one of those over the weekend; it was the door prize at the PARS Christmas luncheon, and I had the winning ticket! I could use a copy of the service manual, if anybody has one. It performs well, but I'd like to touch up the alignment, as the AM sensitivity seems a bit low. This radio might be the loudest portable for its age, that I have ever heard.

Are they scarce? It probably was expensive in its day.

Tim,
I have the Sharp Service Manual that I can send you. Please send me a PM with your e-mail address and I'll get it to you. I no longer have the radio but it was a great performer.
Regards,
Bob

Tim,
I also found the Sam's Photofact Service Manual which should be helpful IF you PM me with your e-mail address. I assume you still want these?
Regards, Bob

Yes Martin, it can be downloaded but for non-members it takes forever to download a page at a time and depending on the number of pages, it can take weeks!!!!
A real pain!
