    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 advance

    Hi Jamie’
    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
    [3] 58s
    [2] 56s
    [1] 47
    [1] 80
    I can’t find anywhere on this forum where I can send you a personal message
    Please let me know if you can read this copy……

    Hi Dan,

    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:

    5Y4G
    6F6G
    6SQ7
    6SA7
    6SK7 (x2)
    6U5
    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.
