The RCA chassis RC-1202 with many suffixes.

This thread is for being able to tell about them at ONE place and link this to the models concerned. At the moment we show the following suffixes:
A, B, C, E, F, L, M, N, a familiy with K, P, R and T, models with U or W and with AA, AB, AC, AD, AE, AF, AH. There are probably more.

The most important:
The model creators have sometimes misinterpreted the information on the schematics. I deal with that for the following models - and hope others will follow and clear further models including to link them to here. This is then the information that the problem has been solved. I deal with the suffixes A, B, C and E only - which represent in fact 20 different models:

Beitman R-21 from 1961 brings the same schematic for 1-X-1 Series, 1-X-3 Series and 1-X-4 Series with Chassis No. RC-1202A, RC-1202B and Chassis No. RC-1202C. Photofact folder date Nov. 1961, set 554, folder 10 shows the following model series with the same schematic:

1C1E, 1C2EM, 1C2FE, 1C2JE for Chassis RC-1202E (has an other tuning capacitor)
1X1E, 1X1F, 1X1H, 1X1K for Chassis RC-1202A
1X2E (picture), 1X2FE, 1X2JE, 1X2LE with Chassis RC-1202A
1X3E, 1X3EH, 1X3FE, 1X3KE with Chassis RC-1202B   and
1X4E, 1X4EJ, 1X4HE, 1X4JM with Chassis RC-1202C.

The manufacturer is RCA Victor Radio & "Victrola" Div., Radio Corp. of America, Camden 8, NJ.
They are small AC operated 5 tube AM receivers and
models of the 1C-series include electric clock.

Power supply is 110-120 Volts AC, 60 cycles, rating is 19 watts and tuning range is 540 to 1600 kc. The drive cord stringing is for models 1X3 and 1X4 only. There are 20 different cabinets (incl. colors), all with an oval loudspeaker of 3 x 5 inch.

For the start we keep it simple by naming the generic models without suffix and adding the suffixes for a given chassis. But when we know more about the suffixes (presumably the different colors), we will add the models for the different pictures in color.
