Re: Sony ICF-S5W Service Manual


Hi Joe,
I don't have information about the service manual (I once had the promotional material on it!). I hope that you enjoy the's quite an exceptional set (produced for about a 1 year run from 1980-1981). New sets such as the Sangean PR-D5 and the Crane Radio Plus and EP series are of similar sensitivity, but you'll find that the S5W is a much more selective radio as well.

Subject: [ultralightdx] Sony ICF-S5W Service Manual

I am brand new to the group, so I hope this e-mail is not too far off-topic. I have enjoyed SW DX for many years, and am just starting to get into MW DX, as I recently came across a decent Sony ICF-S5W at a local flea market.

It is amazing how many stations it can receive in in the middle of the afternoon.

Can someone point me to a reliable link or location where I could pick up a service manual? I see some paid download websites, but I have been burned in the past.

Best Regards,
