Of course the other good source of schematics is the CVRS! – for a paltry $15 annual membership fee you get the following benefits:

Schematic Service: The CVRS offers a free copy service for Radio College of Canada (RCC) schematics to members currently in good standing. A pdf file of an RCC schematic can be obtained by emailing with the manufacturer and model number of a radio made in Canada between 1927 and 1980. Members wanting a printed copy of a schematic should send a SASE (self-addressed, stamped envelope, Canadian postage) to the CVRS Membership address: 10271 Algonquin Drive, Richmond, BC, V7A 3A5, CANADA. If you wish to make sure that an RCC schematic for your radio exists before sending a SASE, email Don White () or write to him at at the above address.

Newsletters: An 8 page bi-monthly newsletter is distributed to members either by mail or electronically. This publication is packed with technical articles on receiver restoration, diagnosing faults, making repairs and member news. For calendar years previous to the current year, electronic copies of the Newsletter can be accessed (where available) and downloaded by current members in good standing. Passwords to access this section will be sent annually to those members taking out membership in the current year (starting in 2010).

Networking: Opportunity to network with like-minded folks—radio restorers, collectors, repairers, historians etc.— by joining local chapters, attending member-organized swap-meets and local meetings to chin-wag about radio-related topics.

Website: The CVRS website provides updated meeting information, membership and contact information, as well as access to radio-related information and links of interest to Members (the CVRS is in the process of a major re-vamp to the website over the coming months).
