I'm in the process of restoring a Westinghouse model WR209 5-tube table radio from 1936. After replacing the old capacitors, I get some life; but, it squeals and squaks on every station on the AM broadcast band. And, 1010 comes in no matter where the dial is set. It even comes in with the osc/mixer tube removed. The short wave band; which, consist of the old police band, works almost like a radio is supposed to work.
I've double-checked all the new capacitors, checked voltages, checked resistors, and moved under chassis leads and parts around to see if that made a difference. Except for a weak oscillator section of the 6F7 tube, everything else checks fine. I suppose the next step will be for me to try another 6F7.
I made several youtube videos of this radio; but, pay close attention to parts 3 and 4. Those are the two videos that show this radio acting up.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYCzgl-NazQhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pciGrBc1doI
Here's a schematic for the radio. http://www.nostalgiaair.org/PagesByMode ... 024267.pdf
Can anyone think of something I may have missed?
