I've scanned Gernsback Official Radio Manual volumes 1 thru 8 and posted on ebaman.com. Keep in mind scans are only as good as the originals. Most are readable but because large number of pages I used a less than ideal scanner/adf combination.

Thank you for making it a .pdf, as I have a hard time opening .rar.
I have been on Ebaman for years and find it a great resource for schematics and manuals.

NEWSFLASH, Jerry... Your scans look wonderful, yet the file size is small... how did you manage that slick trick??? I'd love to see what you consider a higher resolution scan...!!! THANK YOU for taking the time to do this!!! While I do have the books, it is SO much more convenient to punch it up on your monitor...!!! Again, many thanks!!!


Jim

If you found this useful that's all the thanks I need.

When I get some time I will try to post how this scanning project went along.

Enjoy.

Dragging this old thread up since Firefox won't allow me on ebaman site because it's not secure. Anyway around this?

If you are getting this...

click... Advanced
and... Add Exception

→ un-tick... the Permanently store this exception - box, if you wish, for one time access.
then... Confirm Security Exception


Greg.

oh... If it's something else, list the exact error code or message.

here is what I get when I click on more, nothing I try will let me go to this site. Maybe I have an older version of firefox.

Lou, the easy option would be to just follow the instructions in the bottom paragraph of your posted screen-shot above.
Beginning with→ Note: When you start typing... ...to dismiss the warning.

Otherwise...
Google has the answer, rather the me explaining it here.
You can if you wish, disable it for this site (for now) and re-enable it afterwards.

If it's a ongoing nuisance leave it switched off.
