Collins Radio Series, Vol. 1 - Receivers

9781928848172: Collins Radio Series, Vol. 1 - Receivers

This is Vol. 1 of a 4 volume series. Vol. 1 contains all of the Collins Radio Receivers technical manuals. This series contains nearly every Collins Radio technical manual for every communication and amateur radio equipment item that was manufactured by Collins Radio from 1946 until 1980. To insure the very highest quality of reproducing the original manuals, REA used photographic quality paper for reproduction to insure the highest quality possible for the digital files that were created. Many of the equipment items were manufactured over many years which resulted in many revisions of the equipment during the manufacturing life span. This resulted in multiple editions of the same equipment manual. In order to try to give the user of this CD-ROM series a manual that is useful, where the multiple edition situation exists, we have provided an early edition-the last edition and one somewhere in the middle. This will allow the user to find a manual with revisions similar to his/her equipment item. In addition to the equipment manuals, all the factory service notes have been included on the CD's. This series is available individually or as a complete collection. Each CD-ROM is a stand-alone resource product requiring a PC running Windows 95 or higher, A CD-ROM player, and any compatible internet browser such as Netscape or Microsoft Explorer. This easy to use format assures an easy way to search the CD-ROM for the manual that you are wanting and to get very quick access. Each manual is complete from the front page to the back page. All diagrams, drawings and schematics are included. The user can view, enlarge, rotate and print to your local computer printer. You may print a single page, a group of pages or the entire manual. Where a schematic diagram spans several normal sized pages (which is generally the case), the schematics on each page are overlapped so nothing is missed. If you print a multi-page schematic to a normal home computer printer the size is generally 8 1/2 x 11" paper size. The overlapping will allow scotch-taping the pieces together for a seamless flow for those who want to see the entire schematic diagram as it was originally drawn. The license is restricted to individual and non-commercial use. Each CD is a stand-alone product and does not require any other to operate. Volumes 1 through 3 speak for themselves as to what they contain. Volume 4 covers just about everything else, including accessories, vfo's, exciters, rack mounts, cases and nearly everything that one would consider an accessory to the primary equipment. This series contains commercial and amateur equipment, but does NOT contain any of their avionics products. It further contains technical manuals post WWII.

This collection of digital technical publications should be a must for every Collins equipment user and collector. REA had wanted to produce a series of CD's containing manuals of Collins but realized that even if we lasted into the next millennium, we would not obtain all of the manuals that are required to cover this vast amount of equipment, nor would we be able to find all of the editions of the same equipment manual. So Rockwell-Collins provided us their library archive manuals from the Cedar Rapids, Iowa headquarters for digitization and inclusion in this product. It is with their kind cooperation that REA has finally been able to produce this series.
