Radio receiver "GEOLOG" (made in USSR, 1971)

Owing to the continuous development of the receiver there might be discrepancies between the design, electric circuit and their description given in the present Instructions.


Before switching on the radio receiver, carefully read the Operating Instructions. Immediately remove the exhausted batteries from the receiver.


The radio receiver "GEOLOG" is a superheterodyne hooked up with twelve transistors.

It is used to receive radio broadcasts in the long, medium (with magnetic built-in antenna) and short waves (with telescopic antenna).

Power is supplied from an inside 9 V battery consisting of six cells type 373.

The radio receiver uses the following transistors (Fig. 1): GT322B - heterodyne; GT322A (2 pcs) - HF amplifier and mixer; GT309B (2 pcs) - two stages of LF amplifier; MP41 (3 pcs)- two stages of LF amplifier and LF driver stage; KT315B - the third stage of LF amplifier; MP38 - LF driver stage; GT402E - output stage of LF amplifier; GT404B - output stage of LF amplifier (Fig. 1).

SWITCHING ONSwitch on the receiver and adjust the volume, turning volume control knob 1 (Fig. 2) clockwise.
TELESCOPIC ANTENNAIn case of short wave reception pull out the telescopic antenna, first holding it by the head, then by each elbow one by one to the limit of travel (9 elbows altogether). The antenna is provided with a hinge to prevent damaging it from accidental lateral loads and to enable it to be set in any position.
SWITCHING BANDS OVERTo select the required wave band depress one of the six buttons 4 of the band selector switch.
TUNINGTuning to a station is with tuning knob 6.
TONE CONTROLTone control knob 2 is used to obtain a tone more pleasing to the listener.
SCALE BIAS LIGHTINGFor convenience of use at night the receiver is provided with a scale bias lighting and the surface behind the scale has a fluorescent coating. To illuminate the scale depress button 3.
OUTDOOR ANTENNABesides the telescopic and built-in ferrite antennas, use can be made of an outdoor (external) antenna which is connected to jack 9.
EARPHONERadio programs can be listened in over the earphone which is connected to jack 8. With the earphone connected the loudspeaker is switched off automatically.

Remove the two screws which attach the lower cover and take off the latter.

Put in or replace the battery in accordance with Fig. 3, paying special attention to the correct positioning of the cells. The receiver will be damaged, if the battery is reversed.

Re-install the lower cover and turn home the screws.
