Surprising volume change when changing SELECTIVITY on Phantom FM

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, then drops a little…See More

sensitivity comparison Phantom to Philharmonic

Looking through Scott News, Scott specified the Philharmonic at 0.5uV sensitivity (I also see Scott used what we now call MDS, which is +3db S+N/N with an AM signal).  The Phantom is spec'd at 0.6 uV, despite having 1 less RF stage and 1 less IF stage, but otherwise with the same general design features (OK - the variable selectivity is less sophisticated, but with similar RF / IF transformers, etc).  At face value, this suggests there is very very little improvement in adding the 2 extra…See More

"You asking about the choke mounted on the 3 tube AW-15 amp? The Scott chokes are pretty sturdy. A 30 Henry choke was used on several Scott amps, so one from a parts set is not hard to find. Advantage is it will have the chrome cover, fit the…"

Kent King replied to norman david warren's discussion all wave 15 choke problem
"Norman - It is unusual for the P/S chokes to short to ground. It probably got hot due to a shorted filter and melted the internal insulation. Fortunately, I have some spares around here. Unfortunately, I am leaving early tomorrow morning for the…"
