This section contains literature on classic antique radios.  This literature is reproduced only in packets.  A packet for a given receiver contains the Owner's Manual, The Technical Service Manual, Factory Sales Brochures, and Other Original Data on that specific set.  These "Classic" radio sets generally are large tube numbered receivers and/or consoles manufactured by E.H. Scott, McMurdo-Silver, Lincoln, Midwest, RCA, Stromberg-Carlson and perhaps a few others.  Those who have the large tube count radios are privileged to have the cream of the crop and the absolute top-of-the-line receivers ever made!  Manuals over 75 pages in size will be provided as a PDF file on CD-ROM media.

This section is under construction - there will be almost 400 listings in this section when we are finished so check back often as we continue to add more. . . . . Order below or at the bottom of the page with the shopping cart function

A Word About Ordering -

The "Order" button that you pushed which is located above  with individual ordering buttons by section in this Classic series page may have brought you to read this script.  As you can see, most items have a shopping cart button to enter your order, but because we have hundreds of thousands of items on this web, it is simply not possible to put a shopping cart order button next to each item, so we have added this order entry button to allow you to add anything that did not have a button. But we have multiple buttons on this page for the Classic Literature so you should not have to click the Order Button in each section.  You must enter  an item number (if any), a description, so the system can remember exactly what you ordered.  With this secure order form, you can enter as many items as you wish so you don't have to enter your information and credit card data for each item on this page.
