Answer triple corder
Answer triple corder ATR-102. Portable device, three in
one, combining the functions of a tape recorder, radio
and record player. Made in Japan, probably in the
mid-60's. Dimensions 200 x 90 mm. Weight: 1,7 kg
(without batteries). Nutrition 4,5 v, three batteries D
(UM-1). In the tape used the coil diameter of 85 mm (3, 1/3 inches), and standard tape width 1/4 inches. The
tape is moving to the right - left. Duration of
recording one track 10 minutes (tested experimentally).
Further, the coil can be reversed, and continue
recording. The velocity of the tape is not stabilized.
Movement from the engine is transferred to the reel
table through an intermediate roller. For playing
phonograph records stand provides 110 mm in diameter. It
is screwed onto the shaft reel table instead of screws
designed to secure the coil with tape. Removable tone
arm, 140 mm, has a connector (Jack 3,5 mm), which acts
as a rack and inserted into the slot "EXT". Enable by
pressing the button "PLAY". The player can
play the disc with a diameter of 175 mm (rotation speed
45 rpm). Includes a plastic adapter for playing records
with a diameter of inner hole of 38 mm. At the top of the
unit are control buttons, switch the recording mode from
the receiver into a tape recorder, pen receiver tuning,
volume control - the recording level, switch level
indicator and record battery voltage, and connectors
(Jack 3,5 mm) for a microphone "MIC", Headphone "EAR",
and input jack "EXT". Also on the left side there is an
additional microphone jack. Your right side is
non-standard connector for the antenna. To enable the
receiver to insert the antenna connector, aligning the
key slots, and turn it clockwise. In this case, the
pusher connector antenna clicks on the stock switch,
transforming the device into Radio mode. Enable by
pressing the button "PLAY".
The receiver has a range of medium wave (535 - 1605 kHz).
Wiring the unit collected at 8 transistor type 2SB172
(2 pcs., Power), 2SB171 (2 pcs.), 2SB175 (1 pc.), 2SA101
(2 pcs.), 2SA102 (1 pc). In this regard, it is not clear
what it means to the inscription on the cover - "7
Transistor radio & 5 Transistor taperecorder".
Apparently, the producers decided that it is possible to
calculate, since some transistors used in both schemes.
Workmanship and appearance of the unit are good,
original design makes a good impression. The seller
stated that the tape completely new. And so it proved to
me they did not use none, all were packed in their
original packaging. To restore functionality needed
lubrication mechanics, and the replacement of dry
electrolytic capacitors, and then restore all functions.
Of course it's not Hi-Fi, but it's a toy, and works
