 Post subject: Philco Tropic B806, looking for schematic/service manual

Hello!

I'm trying the restoration of a Philco Tropic model B806. There are plenty of pictures of the set online, but no such luck regarding the schematics or service manual.

It is similar to the 46-806 model, but for example the IF cans are different.

I know it's made by Philco (Overseas) LTD, Great Britain, features SW and MW with its IF set to 465kHz.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

All the best.

Hi, Greg.

Thanks for the link. It is very similar but there are a few differences. For example there’s an extra coil next to L2, just above the tuning capacitor, and there’s no C28.

This radio was found at a chicken coop :) , that’s why it’s a challenge. It’s in a really bad shape and I believe some reverse engineering will come in handy to understand all the wiring before going bare metal. I’ll take the schematic as reference for the job.

Thanks again.
