Non-Standard Resistor Color Codes

Postby dkoczur » July 10th, 2014, 3:47 pm

The resistors in my Radiola 82 do not follow the standard color code. They are only two colors. The body color and an end color. Does anyone know how to read these colors to obtain the resistor value? They do not match the standard resistor color code schemes or the old AK resistor colors code. Did RCA have one of their own and does anyone have a chart of their values?

They're all called out in the chassis diagram in Rider 2-92.

Colors were only needed to distinguish them to the girls on the assembly line.
