Vintage radio gear
I have a Citizen-Ship Model PLR - 27 receiver (circa approx 1958). I need the instructions /and/or help to get it connected with batteries and antenna properly. Do you have any info that would help?
Its a production assenbled receiver - has one tube (a GE 3V4) and one relay. The non-prod kit was the "PR - 27". I believe the voltages need to be 1.4 (1.5) volts for the filaments and 67.5 volts for the plate (got this from the specs for the tube). No wires on it at all - only 5 copper clips on ends of the board to connect the batteries (2 at the tube end and 3 at the other end). Apparently one of the clips (on the end that has three of them) is for the antenna wire.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I want to get it working and fly it in an oldies event in the US or Canada or England this summer. I am building the "Schoolboy" model by Ken Willard from Model Airplane News - 1962.
