Notes John F.Rider designed this all purpose instrument for systematic diagnosis in radio repair. It has 5 indicators: besides a DC voltmeter it uses four magic eyes for the "channels" RF/IF, AF, Watts, and Oscillator. Two separate tunable sections for RF/IF and Oscillator tests.

The RF/IF channel covers 3 bands: 95 - 260 kc; 240 - 630 kc; 600 - 1700 kc.

The Oscillator channel has a tuned amplifier covering 3 bands: 600 - 1700 kc; 1650 - 4950 kc; 4800 - 15000 kc. Coverage of Oscillator operation extends up to 70 megacycles.

The name is combined from "channel" and "analyst" = "Chanalyst". The tube complement is somewhat different from the initial publication, where 4 x 6K7 were foreseen. They remained in the RF/IF section, while the other two 6K7 were replaced by an 1852 and a 6SK7 respectively.

Power requirements: Model 162 is 105-125 Volts, 50-60 Hertz, 60 Watts; Model 162A is 105-125 Volts, 25-50 Hertz, 60 Watts.

rca: RCA-Rider Chanalyst 162C -- stand-by function
Rich Post

One of the important changes made in the RCA-Rider Chanalyst 162C was adding a stand-by function to the power switch.  That served to preserve the life of the 6E5 indicator tubes by cutting off most B+ to the tubes except for a feed by way of a 100K ohm resistor.  Most earlier models have much of the upper green image on the tubes worn out except for the lower portion which is activated only by the four channels. I will upload a copy of the 162-C, code 643 schematic which shows the stand-by function.

There is a comprehensive comparison spreadsheet describing the particularities of the Rider Chanalyst Models, prepared by Mark Manis.

A, AX, 11, 11A, 162, 162A, 162B, 162C, and TS-303/AG.

Thank You, Mark.
