saba: W4; Meersburg Frequenzerweiterung 105MHz
Dirk Fischer
09.Jun.07

Hallo liebe Sammlerkollegen,

beim Saba Meersburg W4 habe ich festgestellt, dass man den Frequenzbereich mit einem kleinen Handgriff auf 87MHZ-105MHz erweitern kann. Dazu muss man nur die Anschlagslasche des grossen Alurades am UKW-Tuner umbiegen. Da die UKW-Skala bei diesem Modell zur AM-Skala etwas nach links verschoben ist geht das auch wunderbar mit dem Zeigerlauf. Dieser läuft analog zur Skala von 87MHZ-100MHz, ab 100MHZ - 105,xMHz im "Blindflug" rechts hinter dem dunklen Teil der Skala. Alle Sender liegen genau da auf der Skala,wo sie hin gehören, der "letzte" Sender mit der höchsten Frequenz den man empfangen kann ist bei mir Radio7-Ulm, bei 105MHz. 10 Minuten Aufwand, ohne irgendwas sonst zu verstellen. Ich kenne sonst kein Modell, wo das so geht. Wahrscheinlich/Vielleicht geht das bei einem anderen Saba-Modell aus der gleichen Saison auch. Hat da jemand die gleiche Erfahrung gemacht?

Mit besten Grüssen

Dirk Fischer

saba: Meersburg W4 - Funktion of Knobs
Robert Sarbell
10.Aug.05

My apologies for the incorrect model designation in the Title
The FM unit is installed in the Meersburg W according to the rear panel

Reviewing the schematic for the model 840-780a (dated 6.6.50) and presumably for radios produced in 1950/51, I have not completely understood the function of the right front knob and the lower right rear knob on the side of the radio.
I believe the use and function of the lower right rear knob is the same as that of the Saba S455WK that I have.

I believed the right front knob, however, is used to select the Mode of Operation as follows:

with 5 possible selections, I estimated the Modes to be---
1. TA only
2. All except UKW operation
3. UKW only
4. UKW muting
5. Sensitivity selection (weak or strong) and EM4 circuitry correlation

I realize there were many issues being resolved, after the Copenhagen convention, and improvements to reduce interferences and allow for interstation suppression of "excess noise". The use of the EQ80 FM discriminator (the phase detectors) appears to be somewhat brief in FM circuit developments, and also possibly added to the earliest models to reduce the number of tubes in the radio.

I would be most appreciative to determine the proper use and function of these knobs.

Respectfully,
Robert

  2 Dear Robert,

first i wasn't shure to reply to Your Question.

I descided to post the reply under The "Meersburg W", because this is the Model, to which the Question is, as far as i underrstood.

Please have a look there.

Regards,

Henning

  3 Dear Henning,

Thank you so very much.

My confusion stems from the fact that the FM tuner has the paper tag still attached and it appears as though it may be from the 1953 year for production. Also, it could easily have been installed after production.

I shall review your reply there.

Respectfully,
Robert
