Finding no satisfactory PDFs of the E.F. Johnson Ranger manual available on-line, I took what I have (a photocopy that came with mine) and scanned it and now make it available to anyone in need of a Ranger (the 10 - 160 m. version) manual for this popular and attractive rig. If I missed any out there please let me know as I do not wish to duplicate an existing file or waste bandwidth if there is a superior scan already on-line somewhere.
The manual is in two parts, to make it easier to download and allow you to only download what you need. Note that this is only the operating manual; not the assembly instructions for the kit, but it does have the parts list, schematic, and a few pages of interior cabinet photos with some parts labeled.
The first file is an "Introduction" type document, which is mostly title pages, advertising copy, and a page with a reduced size schematic and block diagram.
The second file is the actual typescript operating manual, dated June 1954; parts list August 1954.http://home.fnal.gov/~atkinson/ranger1intro.pdf
