AM Antennas

Select use of attached loopstick or additional long-wire antenna for AM reception.

Ferrite loopstick antenna. The ferrite loopstick antenna is а sensitive pickup element of the AM tuner sections. For maximum station reception, it must be properly positioned away from the rear chassis and other metallic surfaces. The associated connecting cables and AC power cord should be dressed as far away as possible. For optimum performance, the antenna should be positioned for maximum signal strength indicator indication when the unit is tuned to the desired AM station.

External AM antenna. AM antenna terminals аге provided for a properly designed long wire AM antenna system. Such antennas are useful when the desired AM stations are at a considerable distance from the tuner. A simple long wire antenna can consist of a length of single conductor, insulated wire of 30 feet (9 meters) or longer, extending from the tuner external AM antenna terminal to the outside

of the building. This wire should be positioned away from electrical cables and appliances. Аза rule, the longer and higher the antenna, the better the reception. However, as signal pick up of broadcast station is increased, so also is the pickup of undesirable man-made interference. Therefore, the external AM antenna should be evaluated on a trial-and-error basis.

FM Antennas >

Select dipole supplied or connect suitable external antenna system.

Supplied 300 Ohm FM Antenna. An FM dipole antenna is supplied with your tuner. In strong signal area, this should be

antenna. The braided outer conductor is connected to ground clamp. Refer to connection diagram for

proper cable preparation and hook-up. This type of lead-in offers the same advantages as shielded 300 Ohm cable by minimizing interference picked up by the lead-in cable.

Grounding. Under certain conditions a good earth ground will improve performance of the tuner by reducing interference conducted via the power line. A good ground may also improve the AM performance. Good earth ground dictates that the ground wire be as short as possible, connected to a specifically designed, copper clad steel rod driven into moist earth, or to the cold water supply pipe as it enters the building. Clean oxide from rod or pipe and use suitable ground clamp.

Tuner Output. Use insulated and shielded audio cables terminated with standard pin [cinch] plug. Connect to the input jack on your amplifier or receiver. Observe proper channel connection.

more than adequate for reception of most FM stations. Antenna connections are made to the terminal strip marked FM-300 Ohm located on the rear panel. The dipole

leads are connected to the screws marked 300 Ohm. The ground screw is not used for the dipole antenna. The dipole should be unfolded to its full T-type size and oriented for optimum performance. Dipole antennas are most sensitive to FM reception when positioned perpendicular to the station. Exterior FM 300 Ohm Antennas. For fringe [weak signal] areas, or areas where interference to FM reception is high, the use

of a log-periodic, or Yagi-type antenna system is

recommended. These antennas are directional and high gain

in nature, thus tending to reduce most undesired interference due to reflected signals [multipath distortion} and ignition noise. In areas where stations are located in different directions from the point of reception, the antenna must be repositioned for optimum reception of individual stations. For this reason,

a good quality rotor is suggested. To minimize the introduction of multipath distortion and ignition interference by the antenna lead-in wires, the use of balanced 300 Ohm [twin lead] cable

is recommended. Unshielded twin-lead is suitable where the lead-in wire length from the antenna is short, and when used

it should be twisted at the rate of 1 to 2 turns per foot. Long lead-in wires can act as omnidirectional antenna and can cancel out the advantages of directional antenna systems. Unshielded twin-lead is also more susceptible to ignition noise than shielded cable.

Exterior FM 75 Ohm Antennas. A second set of antenna terminal is provided for connecting ап unbalanced 75 Ohm antenna cable. These terminals should be used whenever a

75 Ohm coaxial cable is used as a lead-in cable from the

Tuner Power Supply

Plug the power cord plug into the wall outlet, supplying 220V 50 Hz AC. To be sure of protecting the memory information, the power cord plug should be plugged into the outlet even when the stereo system is not in operation. If the AC power to the tuner is interrupted for more than 24 hours (due to power failure, etc.), the memory information will be completely lost.

Control Functions


1 Power Switch. Turns the unit on. Lights up when power

is on.

2 Multipath Switch. When depressed, turns the signal strength indicator function to multipath interference indication. The minimum multipath interference is indicated by minimum indication of the indicators.

3 Multiplex Filter Switch. When depressed, a special filter circuit is introduced to reduce the high frequency noise in weak FM stereo reception. This filter does not affect frequency response but reduces slightly the high frequency stereo separation.

4 Stereo/Mono Switch. Determines the manner in which a received station will be reproduced through the tuner. When listening to a stereo FM broadcast, depressing this switch will cause the unit to mix the left and right channel signal detected from the broadcast and reproduce it through both channels monophonically. The released Stereo setting of this switch will provide automatic stereo FM reception. The mono or stereo mode is indicated by the Mono/Stereo indicators.

5 Scan/Mute/High Switch. This switch should normally be set to released position, especially when you wish to listen to very weak FM stations. In the depressed [High] position, the

mute level during scanning over the band, which a signal must overcome in order to stop the scanning and be heard will be high and only strong signals will be tuned in.

6 Short-Time-Hold [STH] Switch. Used when automatic scanning to resume scanning automatically after tuner has paused on a station for 5 seconds. If you choose to continue listening to that station, depress the Hold pushbutton within

5 seconds.

7 Auto/Manual Switch. Determines the manner of Tuning-Up/ Down pushbuttons usage automatic-scan or manual

Tuner Operation

With the tuner installed properly as outlined, proceed as follows:

FM Tuning. Set the AM/FM switch to FM (pushbutton released). When the tuner is first switched on after plugging the power cord to wall outlet, the lowest FM frequency (87.5 MHz) is tuned.

9 Memory Pushbutton. Used to preset 7 AM and 7 FM stations for automatic pushbutton tuning.

10 Mode Indicators. Mono, lights up to indicate that the tuner has switched to monophonic FM reception. This indicator is inoperative in AM. Stereo, lights up to indicate that the tuner has switched to stereo FM reception.

11 Signal Strength/Multipath Indicator. Normally used for tuning on both AM and FM bands, with the Multipath switch released. When the Multipath switch is depressed, it can be used as reference to multipath interference.

12 Digital Frequency Display. Shows the frequency of a station to which the unit is tuned directly. Also indicates AM or FM mode and sign to accept the memory presetting.

13 Tuning-Up/Down Pushbuttons, When the Auto/Manual switch is released (Auto position), these pushbuttons will start the automatic-scan to a station either upscale or downscale. When the Auto/Manual switch is depressed (Manual position), each time depressing either of these pushbuttons will tune the unit to the next available station assignment precisely 50 kHz away for FM and 9 kHz for AM.

14 Hold Pushbutton. Used when automatic-scan with the STH button depressed, to stop the scanning at the desired frequency. If the Hold pushbutton is not depressed within 5 seconds after the scan has stopped at a station, the unit will scan automatically to the next station.

15 Memory Pushbuttons. Used for automatic memory pushbutton tuning on AM and FM. Each of 7 pushbuttons may be preset to both AM and FM stations.

either Tuning switch and hold it in position. Release the switch when you have tuned to the desired station. If you tune beyond the ends of the scale the unit tunes automatically to the opposite end and continues.

AM Tuning. Set the AM/FM switch to AM (pushbutton depressed). When the tuner is first switched on after plugging the power cord to wall outlet, the lowest AM frequency (531 kHz) is tuned. Otherwise, each time you turn on the tuner, the previously selected frequency is selected. Set the Auto/Manual switch to Manual (pushbutton released). Press the Tuning-Up switch to tune upscale and press the Tuning-Down switch to tune downscale. Each time either of the pushbuttons is

depressed, the unit is tuned to the next available AM station asignment precisely 9 kHz away. No fine tuning is necessary. To tune upscale or downscale rapidly, press the either pushbutton and hold it in position. Release the button when you have tuned to the desired station. If you tune beyond the ends of the scale the unit tunes automatically to the opposite end and continues.

Automatic-Scan. Іп addition to the manual station tuning by making use of the Manual setting of the Auto/Manual switch, your tuner is equipped with the automatic-scan tuning. Use either manner а or В depending on the selection ofthe STH switch:

а Set the STH switch released (Off). Set the Auto/Manual switch to Auto. Press the Tuning-Up or -Down switch. The tuner will scan to a station and continue receiving that station. To rapidly scan-tune from station to station, press the Tuning-Up or -Down switch for each change.

b Set the STH switch depressed (On). Set the Auto/Manual switch to Auto. Press the Tuning-Up or -Down switch. The tuner will scan to a station and pause on it for 5 seconds.

М you choose to continue listening to that station, press the Hold switch (or release the STH switch). If the Hold switch is not depressed within 5 seconds, the tuner will scan to the next station. Be sure to press the Hold switch if you choose to continue listening to that station.

Pushbutton Tuning. Each of 7 pushbuttons may be preset to an AM station and an FM station for automatic pushbutton tuning (7 AM/7 FM; 14 in all). Set the AM/FM switch to the desired position. Adjust the Tuning-Up/Down switches for the desired station. Press the Memory switch. Now the word Memory appears on the frequency display area to indicate that the unit is ready to accept the memory, for 5 seconds. Press the pushbutton within 5 seconds to set the station. Now the word Memory should disappear from the display. Repeat above steps for each pushbutton. You may later use pushbutton to select the station you wish to hear. If your

failed to press the pushbutton within 5 seconds after the Memory pushbutton is depressed, depress the Memory pushbutton again. When the unit is in auto-scan mode, Memory switch is inoperative.

FM Stereo Reception. When tuned to an FM stereo broadcast, the tuner will automatically switch from mono to stereo operation, provided that the Stereo/Mono switch is set to Stereo. Stereo broadcasts are indicated by the

illuminated Stereo indicator. Maximum reduction of background noise on weak stereo stations will be obtained by switching the Stereo/Mono switch to Mono. This will, of course, put the tuner in a monophonic mode of operation. When listening to weak stations, the Scan/Mute switch should be released to prevent the tuner from switching to a mute condition due to reduced signal strength.

FM Multipath Indicator Operation. FM multipath distortion

is caused by a broadcast signal reaching the receiving antenna from 2 directions; #1 direct from broadcaster to the tuner,

#2 the same signal but received as a reflection from a nearby building or other surfaces. This indicator is operative only when receiving an FM broadcast and the Multipath switch is depressed. Set the Multipath switch depressed. Set the AM/FM switch to FM. Adjust the Tuning-Up/Down switches for a fairly strong signal. more than 2 dots of the indicator are

lit, considerably strong multipath interference is

suspected. In cooperation with other people, rotate the antenna mast to position your antenna for minimum indication on the Multipath (Signal Strength) indicator. Proper FM reception free from multipath distortion is indicated by the minimum (ideally none) lighting up on the indicator. To revert to normal signal strength indication, reset the

Multipath switch.

It is recommended that the multipath interference check is made during no modulation condition of the FM broadcast being received, if really possible.

Weak AM reception. 1 Position loopstick antenna for maximum station pick-up.

2 Locate tuner away from metal surface. If building construction uses alminum foil faced instruction, metal lath, or stee! framing, AM reception will be poor.

Circuit Description

PLL Frequency Synthesizer (Local Oscillator)

The FM local oscillator is comprised of a transistor 03 and a tuning circuit including an oscillator coil T4 and tuning capacitor D4 (varicap diode). The transistor 03 is being oscillated at a frequency of a receive frequency + 10.7 MHz, and its output is applied to the prescaller ІС U6 through a buffer amplifier 04. Тһе prescaller U6 counts down the local oscillator signal frequency into a lower frequency (1/20) suitable for phase comparison in the PLL circuitry. Thus obtained low frequency is applied to the pin 3 of PLL IC U3 through a buffer amplifier 08, and the resultant phase error signal developed at pin 10 is applied to the active LPF filter consisting of transistors 010 and Q11. Finally the filtered error signal is applied to the oscillator tuning capacitor (vari- cap diode) D4 to correct (or to generate a new) oscillating frequency. |

In case of АМ local oscillator operation, the oscillating signal output from the AM oscillator is directly applied to the PLL IC input circuit (pin 3) through a buffer amplifier 09, and the resultant DC error signal is fed back to the AM oscillator tuning diode D6 also through the LPF filter to correct the oscillating frequency.

The FET transistor 057 is а lock-out signal amplifier, the gate of which is connected to the pin 10 of U3 where a lock-out signal is being developed while a phase locked condition is not established in the U3. The transistor 057 amplifies the

signal and the amplified signal is then rectified by diode D9 and D8 to develop DC voltage to be used for muting control, thus reducing undesirable noises during scanning operation (lock-out condition, etc.).

FM Front End and IF

The FM front end consists of two dual gate FETs and a local oscillator and its buffer. The first FET is used as a FM ВЕ amplifier and the second as a Mixer amplifier. Each gate of the mixer is connected to the RF amplifier output and a local signal injection circuit, respectively. The mixed and resultant IF signals are then led to the IF amplifiers consisting of 05, U4 and U5. The U5 is a multi-function IF system IC including, three stages of limiter/amplifier, FM quadrature detector, meter driver, audio mute signal drive, etc. For further detail of the IC refer to the block diagram shown below.

The detected audio outputs (mono or stereo composite signals) are developed at pin 6 of U5 and applied to the pin 2 of MPX decoder IC. The decoded left and right channel outputs are obtained at pin 6 and 7 of the decoder IC and led to the Tuner Out jacks through low pass filters and one stage of audio amplifier.




МРХ Stereo Demodulation

The stereo decoder IC U9 operates as a stereo decoder when it pin 16 is applied by a voltage lower than 1.4V. First in- verter output (pin 6 of U8), which develops a high output with increased antenna signal input, is connected to the transistor base of 018 and makes the 018 conductive when the FM antenna input signal level is increased, then the pin 16 of U9 is grounded through the emitter-collector of 018 and STEREO/MONO switch, resulting in stereo mode of opera- tion or a high voltage during mono mode operation, and these voltages are utilized to make the stereo/mono lamps turn on or off.

When FM antenna signals higher than the stereo threshold level is applied to the antenna circuit, the pin 4 of U8 be- comes low, and this makes 013 conductive (this is a common circuit for stereo & mono LEDs.).

On the other hand if the U5 operate in stereo mode of opera- tion, the pin 9 develops a low output, then the stereo LED will turn on. However, if the pin 9 develops a high output,

Signal Meter

The FM system IC 05 develops a meter drive voltage at its pin 13 and it is led to the pin 2 of IC U10 (meter amplifier/ driver) through the MULTIPASS/METER switch. The U10 amplifies the signal and drives each meter LED connected to its appropriate pin terminals 9 through 13, depending on the signal strength being received.

For AM operation, AM meter drive signal is also connected to the same input pin terminal of No. 2 of IC U10.

Muting Operation

1. FM Muting

The pin 12 of FM IF system IC develops a positive voltage in the event of a low IF input signal level to drive the muting circuit. The positive voltage is first applied to the first in- verter pin 7 of IC U8 and the output is obtained at the second inverter pin 4 (since the first and second inverter is connected in serial, the second inverter output is in phase with the first inverter input). The output is then connected to the pin 21 of the controller ІС U1. The U1 is designed to develop a logic high voltage at its pin 3 when the pin 21 is applied by a logic high voltage. Since the pin 3 is connected to the base of first muting stage of Q19 through the AUTO/MANUAL switch, the Q19 is turned on in the event of low IF input, and this makes all transistors 043, 044, 045 and 046 conductive to the ground, thereby muting out the audio signals.

2. Muting During Scanning Operation

During scanning operation, the muting circuit is also actuated to eliminate undesirable noises caused by scanning operation, since the controller U1 also develops the high level voltage at its pin 3 in addition to the lock-out amplifier output pre- viously stated. And the FM circuit will be muted as described just above.

On the other hand, in the AM circuit the base of 06 is sup- plied from the pin 3 of U1 (logic high) and becomes con- ductive, thereby shorting out the detector output.

the transistor 022, the base of which is connected to the pin 9, is turned on, the cathode side of the mono LED is grounded through collector-emitter path of Q22, thus the mono LED is turned on.

Scan Stop Operation

To secure good scan stop accuracy, the scan stop drive signal must have a narrow, sharp characteristic with its center coin- cided with that of IF bandwidth. This will be accomplished as follows:

As already described, during scanning operation, pin 3 of U1 develops a high voltage, and this is applied to the base of Q26 and makes it conductive, then the FET 032 is cut off and the resistor connected across the FET is directly con- nected to R57 in series. The increased resistance makes final IF bandwidth narrow.

In case of AM operation, a fraction of IF output signal is obtained and further amplified by a narrow band additional IF amplifier consisting of amplifiers provided between pin 9 and 10 and pin 11 & 12 of U8. The amplified output is rec- tified by diodes D17 and D18 and the output is led to the inverter provided between the pin 14 and 15 of the same IC. A transistor Q12 also operates as an inverter, the collector of which is connected to the last inverter provided between ріп З апа 2. The output developed at the pin 2 will operate in the same way as that of pin 4 in case of FM operation.

AM Tuner Circuit

Most of the AM tuner circuit are integrated in one mono- lithic U7 consisting of a RF amplifier, local oscillator, mixer, detector, meter driver, etc. For detailed information refer to the block diagram shown below. Incoming antenna signals are applied to the pin 1 of U7 and the final detected audio output is obtained at pin 12, and the amplified audio output is developed at pin 9. The pin 9 output is split into two and applied to each left and right channel LPF filter circuits in the FM MPX stereo circuits through R149 and R150. Transistor 017, the colector of which is connected to the AM audio signal line, is also one of muting circuits.

3. Operation and standard setting 3.1 Operation of controls and switches

a) POWER (power switch): This switch makes the se- condary of the power transformer open or close. In the off mode the back-up current is available for the me- mory, which is indicated by LED indicator. When the power plug is taken off the AC outlet, the memory will be erased after 24 hours.

b) MULTIPATH (multipath switch): This switch is used to indicate the multipath distortion by the LED meter by depressing the switch. The FM antenna should be adjusted to achieve the minimum distortion. By re- leasing this switch the LED meter on front panel serves for normal signal strength indication.

c) MPX -FIL (multiplex filter): When depressed this pushbutton activates a circuit which reduces high fre- quency noise in weak FM stereo reception. This filter does not affect frequency response but reduces slightly the high frequency stereo separation.

d) STEREO/MONO (mode switch): Determines the manner in which a received station will be reproduced by tuner.

STEREO (released): Provides stereophonic reception of any stereo broadcast. This pushbutton also provides automatic FM stereo reception.

MONO (depressed): Тһе left and right channel signals detected from FM broadcast are mixed and reproduced through both channels.

в) SCAN LOW/HIGH LOW: Releasing of this pushbutton will introduce a special muting circuit which eliminates noise between stations on FM when scanning.

HIGH: Maximum reduction of background noise on weak stereo stations will be obtained by depressing the SCAN LOW/HIGH pushbutton. This will, of course, put high frequency component in the program material in a monophonic reproduction. In this position, the mute is switched off to prevent the tuner from switch- ing to a mute condition due to weak signal strength. San stop level is as shown: , ЕМ LOW: 20 + 4 dBf

HIGH: 38 + 3 dBf АМ LOW: 57 + 2 dBu/m

HIGH: 67 + 3 dBu/m

f) STH (short-time-hold pushbutton): When depressing the UP or DOWN for automatic scanning, a pause for 5 seconds should be provided by depressing this push switch before resuming scanning. As long as this switch is depressed 5 seconds pause shall be repeated.

9) UP/DOWN (tuning pushbutton): When the AUTO/ MANUAL pushbutton is set to AUTO position, it will start scanning either upward or downward the receive frequency.

When the AUTO/MANUAL pushbutton is set to MANUAL position, at each time of depressing either of the pushbuttons {һе receive frequency will be tuned to the next available station assignment by 50 kHz (U.S.A. 200 kHz) spacing for FM and 9 kHz (U.S.A. 10 kHz) spacing for AM.

Keep depressing either of pushbuttons more than 1 second, receive frequency varies serially, and stop when release the pushbutton.

h) AUTO/MANUAL (tuning mode pushbutton): De-

Push memory preset switch from 1 7. b) Keep depressing either UP or DOWN in MANUAL mode. As the frequency approaches to the designated fre- quency, temporarily release the button. Then press it step by step to tune exactly to the frequency, where MEMORY button should be pushed before pushing one of the 7 buttons. c) Check the frequencies above have been preset cor- rectly on each pushbutton. 5.2 PLL local oscillator circuit alignment 5.2.1 Reference frequency adjustment 1) Connect frequency counter to TP-3. 2) Adjust CT-7 for 11.5200 MHz + 100 Hz.

termines the mode of electronic tuning automatic scanning (AUTO) or manual one-by-one tuning (MANUAL).

In MANUAL mode the receive frequency is selected channel after channel by UP or DOWN pushbutton, enabling a weak antenna input below the muting level to be received.

In AUTO mode scanning starts when UP or DOWN switch is depressed, scanning halts where the level of antenna input exceeds a certain value which is nearly equivalent to the muting level.

In AUTO scanning, scanning function prevails, defeat- ing the memory function.

i) FM/AM: Selects AM or automatic FM stereo reception. When depressed it selects automatic FM stereo reception and when released it selects AM reception.

j) MEMORY: Used to preset AM and FM stations for automatic pushbutton selection. When this switch is depressed “MEMORY” is indicated for 5 seconds. By pushing in one of 7 memory preset buttons during this 5 second period the frequency on the display is memorized.

k) 1 7 (preset pushbutton): Used for automatic memory pushbutton tuning on AM and FM. Each of 7 push- buttons may be preset for both AM and FM stations individually.

|) HOLD: Used to stop scanning at the desired frequency while scanning automatically.

4. Memory back-up check: Confirm 8V at emitter of 0-25 for the back-up current while the AC power source is off. Use a low resistance tester or connect approximate 5 КОћт resistor between + terminals when confirming the back-up current. ;

5.2.2 Vari-cap control voltage adjustment 1) Connect voltmeter between TP-4 and GND.

2) Depress preset-button 5 or 6 (108.0 MHz), adjust CT-4 for 9.6V.

3) Depress preset-button 1 (87.5 MHz), adjust T-4 for 3.4V.

4) Depress preset-button 5 or 6 (108.0 MHz), adjust CT-4 for 10.0V
