A very interesting manual produced to help with the conversion of ex-government  radios for amateur radio use. 

Though it is looked upon as a sin amongst collectors to modify a vintage radio, if the set has already been modified in the distant past, it is not going to make much difference now.

I sprayed my first 19 set white and converted it to a MW transmitted back in the late 1950's.

At least it is real radio, so many of the modern sets are operator only, the insides being a nightmare : )
