How to Service Radios with an Oscilloscope - Sylvania


HOW TO SERVICE RADIOS WITH AN OSCILLOSCOPE

This 72-page book in Adobe Acrobat .pdf format is designed to help you obtain a thorough understanding of one of the primary tools in electronics, the Oscilloscope. The text of this book assumes no previous understanding of electronic theory on your part. It is written to provide you with a great deal of useful information concerning vintage radio servicing with an oscilloscope, regardless of your background, whether you are still a beginner or a person experienced in electronics.

PREFACE
The purpose of this book is to explain in a practical manner the operation and applications of the cathode ray oscilloscope. This is not an engineering manual. We expect that our readers will be radio and amplifier servicemen, and some radio operators, students and technicians.

Because of its general usefulness for all kinds of radio work, the oscilloscope deserves to be used much more widely than it is now. We believe that radio servicemen have neglected the oscilloscope more because of a lack of knowledge of how to use it than for any other single reason. This book explains in simple terms the steps to follow in using an oscilloscope to service AM and FM radios, audio amplifiers and transmitters. All theoretical material has been sifted, condensed and sifted again. Only absolutely essential theory theory which we believe will be of real value to radio servicemen has been retained. We have tried to keep the language as simple as possible and yet give complete and technically accurate explanations as well as detailed pictorial material to aid in a better understanding of the function of the oscilloscope.

Space in any book unfortunately is limited. There has not been room for every one of the thousands of applications of the oscilloscope. We have selected for complete explanation those applications which are most likely to be of interest and service to our readers. If we have been able, in any measure, to save radio servicemen time and trouble and make their tasks more interesting and enjoyable through better understanding and familiarity with new tools, we will consider our job not so badly done.
