I have recently been given a Canadian General Electric Model H-76 radio. I want to start the restoration of it however I cannot find the schematics. I have searched the Radio Collage of Canada indexes but cannot find a match. Does anyone know if this radio went by some other name or point me in the direction where I can find the schematics?
I can find the model on radiomuseum.org (https://www.radiomuseum.org/r/canadian_g_h_76.html) but there is just no information on it.
Thanks in advanceDecember 28, 2019 at 2:20 am #12695Sterling SpurrellCVRS Member
Here is a link where you can buy and download it.

The RCC cross reference for the GE H-76 shows it to be the same as Victor 48.
i hope this gives you more places to look for the schematics.

I have the schematics for the Victor 48 [from the red book]
I can scan it and send it to you if I have your email.
The tubes listed for it are

Thanks for the info but this schematic doesn’t match up and it is listing the wrong tubes. I really don’t want to pay for the schematic if I don’t have to.
The tubs for the radio I have is as follows:
I really just need to know the value of the multi capacitor. I was just going to replace it with two 15uf 600V electrolytic caps and see what that does :). Unfortunately, the cap does not have any markings on it.
Here are some pictures.

Merry Christmas all,
There is a minor conundrum here —– According to the Radio Museum site the H-76 has 6 tubes.
Dan is showing 7 ???????
BTW the H76-B and the H-76-BV have 7 tubes.
Is there another Victor match, perhaps ?

Hi John, 7 tubes is correct. The radio museum specs are wrong. I have already requested a change. The difference between the info Dan has provided and what I find on the radio is the tubes are older than the one I have. My initial thought is there is a newer model. I am going to look at the H76-B and the H-76-BV as you suggested to see if the tube values are at least a match.
