Norman S Braithwaite replied to Dave's discussion Philly Upgrades ?
"Dave: The five pin plug and socket used on the Philharmonic was a popular style used for phonographs into the 1960s.  It should not be hard to find a correct plug.  They came in two types, phenolic wafer holding pins with metal shroud and…"

"The push buttons are momentary contact and must be held down until the station has been reached.  The remote keyboard is not designed to be a hand held device, but a stationary chairside device to be placed on an end table.  The contacts…"

"I believe those three smaller bathtub capacitors on the back apron contain the cathode chokes as well as the cathode bypass capacitors.  If so, the DC resistance between lugs will be very low.  The cathode bypass capacitors will be between…"

Norman S Braithwaite replied to Robert Feenstra's discussion New member - Scott 16
"You are correct.  Without the cathode bypass capacitor, the stage is slightly more linear with respect to frequency but also has slightly less gain.  If the set has adequate volume, leave it as is. Norman"

Carr Fire

Posted on August 1, 2018 at 11:41am 3 Comments

As some of you know, the Carr Fire has exacted a great toll in the City of Redding and surrounding area.  My house and half of my collection was the first visited by the fire in the devastated Lake Redding Estates neighborhood with no advance notice to evacuate and no fire trucks around.  Fortunately the house and collection were spared.  Unfortunately, however, I have learned that the house and collection of an acquaintance including several pre-war Scott receivers was lost and that another…

That's how sad that screwup made me feel.

Better than some of the celebrity mugshots I have seen. Kinda rivals Gary Busey's mugshot.

Mighty glad to become a member of this organization.  I look forward to many conversations in the near future.  Currently I'm working with Bill Bryan to find an A.W. 15 to add to my collection.  Incidentally, Norm you have been invaluable at helping me with my A.W. 23 and A.W. 12, dual dial and thank you for the invite.
