I am trying to help a friend who is working on a Philharmonic AM FM model. There are two bleeder resistors shown on the schematic of the tuner chassis. One has +250V on one end and multiple taps. The…Continue

This morning while searching eBay for Fisher audio equipment I noticed an E H Scott 800B listed as a Fisher from the 1950s. There were only two pictures of the unit in a blonde cabinet. I don't know…Continue

Joseph W Strickland replied to mike hadley's discussion Philharmonic thank you
"Mike; Congratulations on your success with this excellent radio! I'm sure you will get the Low Wave band working too. There may not be much to listen to there, but you may find some government and amateur activity on that band. Have fun! Joe"

Possible IF and Tube Can Replacements

I also subscribe to the Fun With Tubes group on Yahoo. One member there mentioned a company that makes extruded aluminum and stainless steel rectangular and circular cans. They offer a wide range of OD's and heights that might make them useful to replace missing IF cans and tube shields in the Scott Radio Laboratories radios. See:…See More

"In the 16A the tone controls are placed between V6 a 6SL7G, the 2nd AF Amp., and V7 a 6J5 Audio Coupling. It does appear that the cathode resistor of the left half of the 6SL7 is a high value, perhaps 10K ohms (I can't quite make out the value…"

Scott Seickel replied to Joseph W Strickland's discussion AM FM Philharmonic Bleeder Resistors
"On both the 7 knob and the 9 knob AM sets the the 600 ohm is 500k, and the 500 ohm is 50k. They were close on the schematic, weren't they...LOL. The Sensitivity control is 1k.  I thought you were working on an AM/FM set?"

Text Background Color

Posted on December 29, 2016 at 6:19pm 3 Comments

I am wondering if there is any way to change the background color displayed with the text of posts by members. I have difficulty in reading the text with the gray background color. I have had cataract surgery and have to use a magnifying glass in order to read the posts. A white background makes it easy for me to read the posts without resorting to the magnifying glass. I was able to make this change on my personal page, but not here on the forum or blogs.

800B Schematics and Relay connection differences

Posted 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 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.

My…
