Just got a Steinite 261 tabletop radio, and I have a couple questions. First, I can see the dial lamp socket is inside the tuning dial itself, but how do you get at it to put a new bulb in? Second, there is a 3=position switch on the front panel coaxial with and just behind the volume control knob. What is it supposed to be used for?

There appears to be a three position switch to select taps on the antenna coil.

1. This is a rare radio that most of us have never seen. You need to take some extreme close-up photos of the bulb socket so we can better speculate how to dismount it.

2. RM says that this set is MW-only. The partial schematic Jay posted shows that there is a three-position switch to the input coil indicated by the three dots on the coil and the (sort of) pointer. It's probably a sensitivity switch, since there is no AVC in this radio. My guess is that the schematic shows the switch in the least sensitive position.
