McMurdo-Silver Masterpiece VI found in Canada

Hi folks! A few weeks ago I was forwarded an unusual email by a fellow S.Q.C.R.A. member. A certain gentleman up in Picton Ontario was looking to pass on his father's beloved Masterpiece VI to an appreciative home. After much consideration I decided to inquire for more details about the set and eventually came up with an offer. Over the following days the seller was kind enough to send more pictures, details as well as a quick inspection report from Gord Rabjohn, a C.V.R.S. member. We…See More

Color Dial Window, Allwave 23

Posted by Dave Pike on July 11, 2021 at 8:36pm 10 Comments

Hi all, I'm new here, but an EH Scott admirer since I first learned of them, about 32 years ago. I finally acquired my first, and likely my only Scott radio, an Allwave 23, in a Warrington Cabinet. It's missing the color dial "window" only. I have the escutcheon, but would like to find a color window. Have any reproduction windows been made, or does any member have an extra one? Thanks in advance, I'd appreciate any help! Dave Pike

Surprising volume change when changing SELECTIVITY on Phantom FM

Posted by Eddie Watts on May 6, 2021 at 8:02pm 1 Comment

Thanks to Jim Sargent (of Jim Sargent Auctions), I acquired my first Scott, a Phantom Deluxe FM (model BFM, sn ZZ455) receiver and power supply which became available in Lubbock TX where I live. 

After making initial repairs so I could make "as found" measurements - I discovered obvious volume changes when I change SELECTIVITY.  Tuned to noise between stations, using SHARP as my 0db volume reference at the output transformer, the noise is +17db louder when switched to MEDIUM,…
