English to Russian translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Electronics / Elect Eng / Radio - in the text of an American novel about the 1940-50s
English term or phrase:wiring from the diagram
The character of the novel (who is fond of radio and TV) is trying to explain to two women who do not know anything about radio (neither do I) what he is wiring:
On the table was the FM unit which he had started wiring from the diagram…
“What is that?” She asked.
“This is going to be the band. This is the new band. This is what Colonel Armstrong developed. It’s as important as the superheterodyne circuit. The problem with these is drift. The plates expand when it heats, and it drifts off the station. So you have to retune it”.
He picked up the incompleted FM tuner.
