Thanks Skip---nothing wrong with old threads ! Got 'em clean & working, but sure not mint...

Never did find the service info, but someone did send me pics from or link to an Ebay listing for the manual which show a bit of it. If interested in these three pics, PM an e-mail address and I'll send them...

Hey Brian,

At that time, wasn't even aware of your "library", Greg (Egg) is the one who recently referred me to you on that R-1500. These both are RF-6060 Radar Matics...

Thanks for jumping in !

John

John, sometime can you do me a quick sketch or post a couple of photos (here or by email) with dimensions for the key (RF-6060).
I picked up the earlier RF-660 a few weeks back with a missing key. Metal work ain't one of my favorite pastimes...

I was gonna pull the trigger on that service manual in Vermont, but the turkey wants an-arm-and-a-leg for shipping to me.

There is no rush on the dimensions as I won't get to it until Christmas.

Greg.

No Problem John.It must be my luck on getting sets that look like they went through a war with bad looking cases.For Brian .Yes Mine is a RF-6060 too.I dont know much on the RF-660 set.

Heres my set of photos of my RF-6060.Not the best Q since I closed up my outside work shop for the winter.LOL .The photos would be better if taken outside.. It looks like I paid a buck for it years ago at the fleamarket.The tag is still on it.LOL.

Hey Skip---what's $1, that's basically a give-way !

Is that just dirt or residue of some sort on grille and trim or did something "etch" it ??? The dial window looks decent as do the insides and back cover...

Looking forward to seeing project and completion !

John

Yes indeed.Back then there was no internet and Ebay to assist sellers.I probably picked up the radio back in the 1980's or 90's .It played fine back then.It sat in a box of radio for years.Now I'll try to bring it back to life.I'll will clean it later after its working good..The half schema from Ebay that Greg posted will shed some light on the subject until a complete schema shows up.I'll start recapping around the area that I think is the problem.

Thanks again, Greg !

Maybe since we know the primary manual is for an RF-660, someone here might realize they have it ?

John


I've got both the RF-660 and RF-6060 manuals on microfiche. PM me so we can get them to ya......

EDIT: IXNAY on the PM - I found your address in an old PM file. Goes out today or tomorrow AM.
