In "Radio Retailing" May 1933, page 47, "Tricks of the Trade" we can read for models Sparton 69-A, 79-A, 930AC, 931AC, 931DC, 301DC and 301AC: "Fourth section of band-pass selector, just preceding RF sometimes cannot be tuned to resonance with first three sections, producing weak reception and loss in selectivity. Give first, second and third selector trimmers 3 turns clockwise. This makes slightly less tuning capacity necessary for given frequency and fourth section selector can not be adjusted for resonance. Balance set in customary manner with oscillator and output meter and re-adjust kilocycle scale on dial by loosening it on shaft and re-setting."
