(Refer to Chassis View and Voltage Chart for location of trimmers)

Output meter across 3.2 - ohm output load.
Align for maximum output. Reduce input as needed to keep output near 0.4 volts.

Volume control at maximum for all adjustments.
Chassis must be removed from cabinet for proper alignment

The antenna coil assembly is made so that it is movable up or down. When making the adjustment as given in the alignment procedure move the coil assembly very slowly. It can be moved by hand or by pivoting one edge of the blade of a screwdriver in the hole and engaging the blade in the gear teeth of the coil form.

After the antenna coil has been tracked at 1400 Kc. it is necessary to check the antenna trimmer (C2) adjustment again at 1720 Kc. If no appreciable change in trimmer adjustment is made the coil is in track, if the trimmer requires considerable change it will be necessary to again adjust the position of the antenna coil at 1400 Kc. These two adjustments should be tried several times until no change of trimmer adjustment is required at 1720 Kc.
