If it is a 791 instead of a 79, check here:

you may find a similar model.

If it is a Marconiphone,
Although there were some Marconi models that may not be int he Nostalgia Air database for any number of reasons, partly due to the fact Rider usually put them in with the Miscellaneous models.

Other possible sources could be in the various "Shortwave guides" that were published in that era- many included schematics from the manufacturers. Lindsay publishing has reprinted 1936 and 1937, whether they are still available is tough to say, but you can check the listing of what Lindsay publications has on hand at just look for the book list.

My own suggestion- Recap it completely first. Then check the resistors to make sure none are outside of the tolerances- usually 20 percent. From there, tweak the IF;s and the radio should come to life even with weak tubes.

If you are in the UK, or Europe, there should be a few dedicated museums that may have the schematic available as well- just use search engines less used. In other words- forget google or bing- Although or might give you some hits if the radio is not of US manufacture.

How do i fix a cb radio tube type has no receive

you have to have a vtvm a schematic of the radio and a replacement tube if necessary .With these tube types be very careful not to touch anything you shouldn't because you could get a terminal shock. with the schematic check the voltage spec and make sure the tube is actually working properly ,then check the socket to make sure that the correct voltage is getting to it Make sure you don't have any static because it will short out the radio.

Mine is a Grundig YB-2000 radio--and has just stopped transmitting. What's the problem?

Occasionally I've found dirty contacts, a crack in the board, etc. Try working the switches; check batteries and look for corrosion of the contacts.

But - this model is a receiver only. It's not supposed to transmit. If you had it transmitting, please tell me how. Marconi wants to know.

Apparently these sold as low as $30 at places like Fry's. At that price, it's not worth repair.

Sirius radio

Cliff, If you mean a schematic then u are going to have a tough time finding that. It is manufactured by Directed Electronics, so you might try to contact them, but they might not be willing to divulge that info.

Good luck!
