Hi Ken

Thanks for the note. Sorry for the late reply. I moved in October and haven't been on here until now. Regarding the Philharmonic speaker, I have done nothing to it so far. A collector I know swears by mineral oil on (dusted off) cones, but I have never used the stuff. Thanks for the kind words regarding the Philco book, I appreciate it.

At 12:24pm on January 15, 2014, Ron Ramirez said…

I would suggest gentle brushing of the cone with a small 100% Genuine Bristle paint brush.

Hi Ken. Thanks for the welcoming !  I've posted several photos of my Scott radio set and I hope someone can identify what exactly I have here... and hopefully a rough idea what it's worth

Thanks again

Rocco

My Philharmonic featured on SWLing Blog Post

Posted on April 6, 2016 at 1:14pm 5 Comments

I subscribe to an excellent blog called the SWLing Post. It is run by Thomas Witherspoon, a man who has boundless energy.

Recently he featured a Crosley radio that was competing for the high end market back in the late '30's. At the end of the article he asked if any of his readers had a 'benchmark' radio. 

I responded with a few photos of my BOL Philharmonic and he created a post from my information.

Replacing the 7 capacitors in the Bass Box

Posted on January 22, 2016 at 12:17pm 0 Comments

My Philharmonic had a number of problems when I first began to repair it. Once all the major problems were taken care of (thanks mostly due to several very helpful people on this forum) I finally got around to the nasty bits. There is rectangular box under the chassis which I think is called the Bass Boost Box. All seams are fully soldered together and the wires that leave it come out just one hole. It was recommended that I change out all of those capacitors. I saved that job for…

WTWW Christmas Photograph

Posted on December 29, 2015 at 8:52pm 8 Comments

The shortwave station WTWW runs a Christmas event each year. They ask listeners to submit a photograph of the radio you are using while listening to Christmas music on their station. 

Last year I submitted a photo of a Zenith Trans-Oceanic I was using.

This year I took a photo of the Scott Philharmonic which I recently put back together and placed in my radio room so I can use it. My photo is below. ( the knobs are all wrong - someday I will find a set).…
