Default Re: Baird T5 restoration project.

The wartime civilian radio receiver uses a WX6 as the second detector. The attachment shows the diode in an U20 chassis. The anode of the rectifier is connected via the secondary of the IF transformer to the bottom end of the volume control. So it follows the red end of the WX6 is the anode.
The WX6 in the T23 will be reversed and we'll see if the DC restorer works as the sync tip clamp.
