Kalamazoo Meet

For all the Enthusiasts here: Is anyone planning to attend the Michigan Extravaganza at Kalamazoo this coming weekend? If so, maybe some of us could get together on Friday afternoon to meet and talk. Reply to this thread and we will see the level of interest.On a related note..I need to thin out some things. I have been considering selling one of my Selectone battery supers. If there is any interest, I'll give members here a first shot to see it at Kalamazoo.Thanks everyone!KentSee More

E. H. Scott Product Placement at Klingberg Vintage Motorcar Festival

Posted by Ken Carr on June 20, 2015 at 6:51pm 4 Comments

6/20/2015

Radios are not my only hobby interest. Old cars also make me smile. For that reason my wife and I attended the Klingberg Vintage Motorcar Festival in New Britain, CT today. 

I wore my Scott T-shirt thinking that there might be some fellow radio enthusiasts attending the event. I'm always ready to talk radio.

Well, there was no talk of radio but I did happen to meet the Grand Marshall of the event, Wayne Carini. Most mornings I watch him on TV as he appears in…

AW 23 help needed

Posted by Kent King on June 1, 2015 at 9:49am 10 Comments

Ok gang...so I have an AW 23 that I fully restored about 4-5 years ago. Played great. For lots of reasons, it hasn't been run much since then. I ran it up on the Variac this weekend, and here's what happened: AM and first SW band are dead, and the osc VR tubes don't light. On SW2 and SW3, osc VR lights up and the set plays great. Good audio on the phono input too.

So I take the tuner apart and check the osc circuit. The grid resistor is significantly off value, so I replace it. Clean…

Update to Scott Info Archive

Posted by Kent King on May 27, 2015 at 8:21am 1 Comment

Fellow member Dave Poland asked me a question about the service manual for the Sixteen. That query made me realize that I did not have the PDF file in the "Scott Info Archive". I have just added two Sixteen service manuals to that folder in the Archive. Both manuals appear to be missing pages 7-8....however. the full size schematic is what spans pages 7-8, so those pages aren't missing, you just need to look at the diagram for those pages.

Please let me know if there is other…

Shielded Grid Wire

Posted by Norman S Braithwaite on May 20, 2015 at 2:48pm 1 Comment

Shielded grid wire with cloth insulation is not easy to find but is an appropriate replacement for the shielded wire with rubber insulation (now failing) employed in many Scott models.  A roll of shielded grid wire with cloth insulation is currently being offered at the link below.…
