    Yes it was a kit, probably back in the 50's. It's an RF and AF signal
    generator made from a kit. Uses 1 12AX7. No model number on it. On
    the front it says:

    Signal Generator Kit

    RCA INSTITUTES, INC NEW YORK, N.Y.


    I know it's not the best signal generator, but my father built it and I
    like to restore some of his old equipment.

    I'd love a schematic if anyone can help.

    Thanks,
    Tony

    Unfortunately they have lots of manuals and schematics for RCA test
    equipment, but not this one.

    In the RCA Tube Manuals, they often published example schematics of AM and
    FM radios, audio amplifiers, and test equipment in the back of the book. I
    suggest looking in these, probably in a book published in the 1950's or
    early 1960's.

    Suggest you join these Yahoo groups and ask there:

    (This one is for HP & Agilent brands, but they have been generous in helping
    with other brands...):

    and this mail list:

    Good luck.

    I don't have a schematic for the RCA Institues signal generator kit but I do have an assembled unit that's the next best thing.

    Have you found a schematic for the RCA Signal Generator Kit yet? If not, I have one and will gladly scan it and send it to you. This generator was built in the late 50's by my Dad and uses one 12AU7; it was part of the RCA "Radio-Television Electronics Course for home study".

    Give me a little time to get a good detailed scan of the schematic (at work) then I'll get back to you. I'm not exactly sure how to send an attachment from this site?
