Watkins-Johnson Manual Photocopies For Sale

Many of these are photocopies of manuals made by Watkins-Johnson that I obtained from the estate of a long-time WJ depot technician. They range from good to excellent condition. A few contain handwritten notes and other marks made by WJ personnel. Condition and size are noted in the table. Others are copies that were passsed on to me by various employees and radio hobbyists.

Most manuals were printed on demand so variations are common. Equipment was routinely modified to upgrade performance or satisfy customer orders. You should expect the possibility that there may be portions of specific manuals that do not match a specific radio you possess.

Shipping only to US addresses in the 50 states. Prices do not include shipping. Shipping quotes on request with your address and zip code.
