"Hi Scott.  You must have gotten a PM from James Pollard?  I did as well.  I suspect some sort of scam.  I emailed him using his given email and so far have not received a response.  It may have been a mistake to email him!"

"Hi James, What's up? I have seen this post (from you) in many locations on the net, with a private profile, that cannot be viewed, seems like a scam, or phishing, You can PM me if this is legit."

"In theory the RF diode adjustment may be made on any band but it is unlikely that a signal strong enough to align the RF diode will be available on the shortwave bands.  If the RF diode was able to reduce the signal on a strong broadcast…"

"It seemed to drop the level of a strong station when I adjusted it. Does that also work on the other bands as well? IIRC I adjusted it on the broadcast band."

"Well... I brought it back to my friend, the 3 shortwave bands work extremely well, but the broadcast band sounds poor with quite a bit of rushing noise in the background, I am at a loss as what to do next. The terrible noise i had at my place is…"

"Yes.  The top cap on a 6A7G tube is the control grid into which the incoming signal is fed. Norman"

Scott Petersen replied to Scott Petersen's discussion My friend asked him to help him with Allwave 23
"When they say to attach the sig gen to the grid of the 6A7, that is the cap on the tube,correct? The basing of the tube shows several different grids, I am a little unsure if i used the correct one."

Scott Petersen replied to Scott Petersen's discussion My friend asked him to help him with Allwave 23
"It's like I have trouble separating the signal from the noise. I tried a modern radio, and the ratio of noise to signal is quite a bit better, I realize the radio is 70 years newer, but many of the Youtube videos show the set working a bit…"

"Yes, I aligned it per the instructions, I certainly saw a peak at each IF adjustment, and the diode, If I put my hand within an inch of the antenna terminal I pick up background noise, I can hear the local station within the noise."

Hi James,

What's up?

I have seen this post (from you) in many locations on the net, with a private profile, that cannot be viewed, seems like a scam, or phishing, You can PM me if this is legit.

Hi Scott.  You must have gotten a PM from James Pollard?  I did as well.  I suspect some sort of scam.  I emailed him using his given email and so far have not received a response.  It may have been a mistake to email him!
