telefunken: 2194; Concertino. AM IF Frequency ?
Howard Craven
04.Feb.14
  1

 

Hello,

I have just overhauled a 1961 Telefunken Concertino 2194 and I have a question about its AM IF frequency.  It's currently set to around 480kHz, some way off the 460kHz stated in the service manual but I don't think the set has been tampered with. Stamped on one of the IF transformers is '485kHz', which may suggest that for the UK and other export markets it was changed. Is it likely that the AM IF frequency on exported versions of this set would be set to 485kHz?  I have overhauled several German built radios of this era and the AM IF frequency has always been the same as the German market sets.

If so I shall align it to 485kHz as it has drifted and the set is lacking a little gain on all AM bands.

Regards ............ Howard

Hello Howard.

If your radio is made  for the market in Luxembourg or France,  certain the 485Khz realistic.

Why?

The Station  Luxembourg make an interference (*) of  his own  reception frequency = 234 khz,
with the second harmonics in the Mixerstage in the Set.

 e.g. 2x 234Khz  = 468khz - 460 Khz = 8khz. interference, this is audible.

SABA built models for LUX. with 479 Khz as IF. What means an interference = 11Khz.

With your IF of 485 Khz, are the difference = 17Khz.

GRUNDIG an Philips use for BENELUX=  452khz. That makes 468- 452 = 16 Khz

All  this are far or outside of the audio Range from the IF -Channel

Hello Hans,

Thank you for your reply.

I don't know the history of this Concertino but it does not have a UK dial nor English lettering so may well have been built for the Luxembourg market.

I will therefore align the AM IF to a frequency of 485kHz as it has obviously drifted and hopefully the set  will then work better than it does now.

Regards ...... Howard

Now 472KHz to 480KHz is allowed in many European countries for Amateur 1W EIRP, which could be a 2kW power amplifier. So 485kHz or higher (or 467kHz and lower) is better than 480KHz, assuming a +/- 4.5KHz bandwidth. 

However like the 137kHz Amateur use it's not likely to be too common.

telefunken: 2194; Concertino - Audio circuit questions
James MacWilliams
12.Apr.10

 This model has a stereo audio circuit.  From studying the schematic, it seems to have an extra triode in the left channel.  After the volume control, the audio signal for each channel goes through through a triode.  In the case of the left channel, that triode is part of the EABC80 and in the case of the right channel the triode is part of the ECL86.  The output of the right channel triode goes directly to the pentode section of the ECL86.  The left channel, however, goes through the triode section of the ECL86 before it is applied to the pentode section.  

I have two questions concerning this model.

  1. Why the extra stage in the left channel?
  2. How to adjust W66, the 20k trim potentiometer in the cathode circuit of the second triode of the left channel?

Best Regards, Jim

Improved because the circuit diagram was too large.

Günther Stabe † 19.8.20

The extra tube is a phase inverting stage because the deep frequencies below 300 Hertz run on the push-pull stage with a special coupling transformer. The higher audio frequencies will use the smaller transformers as two single amplifiers, but the polarity is vice versa depending on the changed phase.

This application had been described in depth in the electronic magazine FUNKSCHAU in 1957/1958. Some years ago I took some copies of this article but today I didn't find it within my other paperwork. My guess is - I shreddered the copies with other material....

Perhaps another RMOrg member owns this magazine and is able to transmit the original - or a translated version - to you.

The trim potentiometer is an adjustment for the phase inverter; the 18 kOhm resistor leading to the plate must be also with the same value - depending on tolerances - as the summary of the cathode resistor(s) 1.2 kOhm and the adjusted value of the trim pot.  Only when both Ohm values are equal the phase inverter will work well resp. as designed.

G.S.

Thanks for that.  I would like to see the article you refer to.  German would be fine as I can have it translated.

So I assume then that with the cathode resistance matching the anode resistance the gain of this stage would be -1?  I'll check this on my 2194.

Certainly an interesting design.

 You are absolutely right: no gain, only inverting for the push-pull function.

telefunken: 2194; Concertino -- UKW not working
James MacWilliams
07.Jul.09

I am restoring a Telefunken Concertino 2194.  I have replaced all the paper capacitors and a couple of resistors that were out of tolerance.  The radio works well on all the AM bands - LW, MW, and KW -- and sounds great.  FM (or UKW), however, is not working.  It does receive one station, extremely weak, volume has to be at maximum to hear it.  This station is just outside the FM band the radio should receive -- 101.0 MHz.

All the voltages are okay.  I have checked the waveband keyboard switches and they are okay.  I have tried known good tubes (valves) -- ECC85, EF89 (2x), ECH81, and EABC80 with no change.

I have made some DC resistance checks through the FM front end section with the ECC85 removed to verify the resistors.  They are okay with the exception of W604 which should be 33k and I measure 21k.  But I am not sure how to open the front end section, so nothing has been changed (or cleaned for that matter).

I am hoping for some suggestions on where to procede.  Or perhaps notes on how to open and service the FM front end.  Has anyone had similar problems with this model?  Any guidance would be appreciated.  Regards,  Jim

Thanks Hans.  That link will be a big help.  First, I now know how to open the RF section.  Second, it gives lots of help in understanding how it works and what is important.  Much appreciated.

Hello Jim

 

Important is: the cores inside the FM-Box being moved via Dial?

Post 8, Local Osc. works ? Without this, no reception is doing.

Your Signal at 101 can bee something e.g. Overloading the RF- Stage.

Hi Hans,

With the information in the thread you provided I was able to remove and open the FM front end.  The good news: the cores are okay and moving properly.  So far I have been able to only inspect the unit.  Everything looks okay.  I did test the diode.  It is okay.  The resistor I was concerned about is really a 22k resistor.  The schematic shows a 33k resistor there.  Perhaps this resistor (W604, the bias resistor for the anode of the oscillator) is selected during manufacturing.

Based on your explanation in the other thread, I suspect the oscillator is not working and the radio station I hear is due to the mixing of two stations.  The schematic shows that both the RF amplifier and the oscillator should draw 12.7 mA.  I will verify that.

The schematic also shows a switch S7 that is part of the FM tuning knob.  What is the function of this?

Jim

Hans,

I read further in the other thread and now realize that S7 must be part of the AFC circuit.  But I'm still uncertain what it does?

Hello Jim.

You must go to post 8 an realise the Measuments DC- Volt on Testpoint on FM-Box

 or this test

Hans,

I performed the test you requested.  At the test point I measure -3.3 vdc.  Looking at the signal on the test point with an oscilloscope, I see a sine wave from 0.0 vdc to -5.6 vdc at 11.02 MHz.  I think this is okay?  Any thoughts?

Hello Jim.
 
I will say, nothing is allright.
 
There is not any reason for 10 + / - Mcs on testpoint
 
If that is right, oscillate the stage (mixer_osc) on IF = 10,7 Mcs not aproxx 100Mcs.
 
Also then you can measures, negative voltage by the Test point, it works like a BC (MW_LW) Osc. together with the IF-Coils
 
Three ideas.
Solder 150 to 220 pF in parallel to C616 130 pF
Or, an 3300 to 3900 pF in parallel to C610 3300 pF
Or break Resistor W602 on one end. This stops RF- Stage. Maybe she oscillate on RF Frequency and overload the Mixer_Osc.
 
And repeat the measurments again,  each.
 
 
See Diagram

Per your request, here is what I measured:

  • Adding a 3900 pF capacitor in parallel to C610 had no effect.  Oscillations still present.
  • Opening W602 is too difficult, so I did not do this.
  • Adding 220 pF in parallel to C616 (130 pF) stopped the oscillations.  Voltage at the test point is -0.56 vdc.  Anode voltage, 72 vdc (no oscillations).  Voltage across W602 (150 ohm cathode resistor of 1st triode) is 1.34 vdc with pin 2 of the RF box open (no connection), with it connected the voltage is 0.97 vdc.  Anode voltage of 1st triode is 163.4 vdc.  Pin 5 of the RF box is 170.0 vdc.

All of these tests were done with the RF box removed from the chassis.  RF box assembly is open.  Jumper wires are used to connect HT (170 vdc), 6.3 vac, and earth (ground).

Any suggestions?

Hello Jim.
 
Everything it is possible how I mean.
If the oscillator does not oscillate on 100Mhz, the conductance of Tube is  5 to 6 times larger and the tube see here     on page 4
 
 
 
The additional condenser parallel to the 130pF,  stops Regeneration on 10.7 Mhz.
Now, one off the Ceramics around the Mixer-Osc. Tube is wrong. I can not see who !
I don’t now, if you can read german. There was the same problem.
 
This engineers well informed, have  no solutions for here Problem.  
 
Tomorrow I can give you a paper on Rmorg. What ceramics take  part.
 
My job was to show that local-osc. ist out of function!
 
That’s all I can do for you
Hans

Hans,

I suspect the 11 MHz oscillation may be due to the oscilloscope (O-scope) probe.  I put the assembly back in the box for proper shielding.  I also mounted the box back on the chassis to provide a proper ground (earth).  I connected HT and 6.3 vac.  I then measured the voltage at the test point through a 100K ohm resistor using a DC voltmeter (per other thread).  I measured -2.95 vdc.  Still using the 100K resistor, I measure the same with the O-scope with no oscillation.  But without the 100K resistor and probe directly on the test point, it oscillates at 11 MHz.

Still, I do not see any oscillations on this test point in the 100 MHz range.

I am tempted to re-connect all wires to see if anything has changed.

Regards, Jim

Hello Jim.

As an installation you can find a picture with components.
When in a red way marks, are to 100 % participated in the failure of the oscillator. As being green-marked, only the 2x 7,5 pF. The 11 pF is actually in function. Otherwise the stage would not have oscillated on 10,7 Mcs.

What i think is: the Diode ist wrong! O.K. you think no!


 

EDIT: More.

Uses Portable radio, tune the VHF box on lower end (88 Mcs)

Bring the rod antenna of the portable near to the ECC85 bulb and search at 88 + 10,7= 98,7 for a strong carrier.

If an local VHF Carrier is busy there. Move the Box a little bit higher.
You can find that in German here.

Switch the VHF- Box off and on to test what Carrier you receive.

 Booth, that and use off VTM and 1 Meg. i have recommendet long bevor.( post 7,  above) I am sorry, english ist not my language!


I wish you a lot of success .

Hans,

I have determined the faulty component, C616 - 130 pF capacitor.  I did a number of things to simplify the circuit.

  • I soldered pins to all the input and output signals from the FM box.  This made it simple to make and break all connections to the FM box.  I do not like to use jumper wires for high frequency circuits due to the uncertainty they add in terms of inductance and capacitance.
  • I disconnected the cathode resistor, W602 - 150 ohm, to eliminate the first triode as the source of the 11 MHz oscillations.
  • I used the schematic you presented in the other thread which showed the schematic of the FM box from a Gavotte 9.  This radio has a nearly identical FM box, but does not have the AFC circuit.  This eliminates the diode, GR601, and capacitors C615 and C619 (both 2200 pF).  I temporarily modified my FM box to the Gavotte 9 FM box.  11 MHz oscillations still present.
  • Finally, I removed C616 - 130 pF capacitor (measured 80 pF) and installed a 180 pF (It is what I have on hand.).  That did it.  FM box now oscillates from about 98 MHz to 111 MHz.

I still have to undo the other modifications I did, but I feel certain it will continue to work.  Thanks for all of your suggestions, you have been most helpful, and I would not have gotten there without your assistance.

Regards, Jim
