Dear Forum members,

I have a Zenith 7A02 chassis for restauration here. I dowloaded the circuit diagram for this set, and it appears that there is an important difference between this diagram and the chassis i have here. The diagram mentions only two connection points A and G, but the rear ot the radio has a 5-pin connector for the antenna.

This antenna is a Zenith "Rotor Magnet Wave", as you can see on some of the uploaded pictures.

Can anyone provide me withe the correct circuit diagram please?

Thank you

Hi Georges,

in Riders one can find an additional sentence right above A/B:

'Link shown in position for wavemagnet operation'. So it seems to me that the coils (sourrounded with the dotted line) are the wavemagnet but there are no numers given for the socket.

Regards,

Hello Daniel, and other forum members,

in the meantime I found the answer: please refer to the attached drawing:

The green marked part is the Rotor Wavemagnet. This loop antenna is not a physical part of the radio chassis, but is connected with a 5 pin plug to it. I added this information to the drawing.

 

Best regards
