EH Scott Radio Enthusiasts

The Fine Things are Always Hand Made

Hello all!
I'm new to the group but I have recently acquired a scott 16 in fantastic shape and a scott phantom deluxe in not so great shape. I can find alot of info on my phantom deluxe but barely anything on the scott 16. Does anyone have any info such as a readable schematic, any info on the console at all or even old ads? These are the first 2 scotts I've owned and I got both around the same time and I'm quickly becoming obsessed. I've recapped most of the scott 16 and it is one amazing set. Thanks for any help!

Hi Kent,

The serial number is CC233.  I also found a date stamped inside of the chassis that reads October 12th, 1937.

Hi all, this is Tom , northern California. I also have Scotts, a Phantom, a model 16, and an Allwave. The Phantom is all done and works well except a hum that I need to find. I just finished the Model16 and am ready to align it. Is it also 465kc for the IF frequency?
It's serial number is JJ-176, Acoustacraft cabinet, same as my Phantom.

I am not sure if my post actually worked, but I got my Model16 up and running, just needs alignment.Serial # JJ-176, Acoustacraft also, same cabinet as my Phantom.

Is the I F frequency 465kc?


Next is the Allwave I have  with a great cabinet and poor chrome.


yes - 465 KC per Scott documentation.

Select INFO ARCHIVE at top of this page, then select SET FOLDERS, and select 16-18 (for the model 16).

Review and/or print the Service Manual. If you don't have the owner's instruction manual, print it too.

Well last night I finished the last few .05 caps, the 2 MFD can, and the can with the 4 .5 caps in it.  Sensitivity is just amazing with this set and my wavemagnet antenna.  There was a slight hum that wouldnt go away until reading about certain tubes and spiral heaters.  After replacing a metal 6k7 and a metal 6j5 with the old style, the hum is gone and this thing is perfect!

I "scan the bands" periodically with mine and also listen to some AM broadcasts on.  They are excellent radios.  Eventually I'll get my Acousticraft cabinet restored so that I can get the radio and speaker in their proper place.  That should enhance the sound considerably.  Happy to hear that all is well.

The later production Model 16's have a hum adjustment pot on the amp near the rectifier tubes.
