800B Schematics and Relay connection differences

Posted by Joseph W Strickland on November 23, 2016 at 10:40am 1 Comment

Overall E H Scott Co. did a great job of documenting the 800B model versions, however, there is one area where they seemed to go into uncharted territory. The labeling of the Jacks and Plugs on the two chassis tends to lead to confusion. Normal practice in the industry is to have J numbers coincide with their mating P numbers. In the case of the 800B: the P1 Receiver plug of the Receiver chassis mates with J3 of the Power Supply chassis; P2 audio plug of the radio chassis mates with J4 audio…

First Introduction to E H Scott Receivers

Posted by Joseph W Strickland on November 15, 2016 at 8:45pm 5 Comments

My first exposure to E H Scott receivers was through a friend who had acquired an 800B which was not functional. I was working in consumer electronics repair at the time. He had been unsuccessful in finding anyone who could repair it in Dallas. I finally agreed to try. It turned out to only have a shorted bypass capacitor in the FM IF strip that took out a B+ isolation resistor. It played fine after parts were replaced. No tubes were at fault and were still working very well.

W.T.B. Tuning Motor for Scott 800B

Posted by Mike Bracey on October 22, 2016 at 5:41pm 14 Comments

I have just been given a Scott 800B. It's all complete except for the tuning motor which was removed for some reason. I was wondering if someone might have one on a parts chassis that they would part with?

Thanks, Mike
