Been a long time since I checked into this forum. Just wanted to share a photo of my shack featuring my original SLRM and a replacement DX-40, a replication of my orignal novice station that put me…Continue

"Actually, the AC/DC power supply of the original SLRM may well have been a requirement of the original WW2 order. At that time 125 V DC was used on some ships, especially merchant vessels,  rather than AC, being considered safer. In fact, even…"

"Chris - If it isn't too much trouble, I would love to get scans of the correspondence you have on the set. There is very little material in the time period, every little bit I can add to the archives would be fantastic. Your notes on the…"

"Thanks for the reply Kent. It appears that the Navy liked the SLRM,REE but wanted to Make some improvements for the “next generation” of shipboard super low radiation entertainment/backup communications receivers. Not clear if the…"

"Chris - I have nothing to add to what you've posted. I do know that other companies built Scott models, but I've never heard of one being altered this much. Conversely, Scott labs built some other radios too (RCA specifically) during the…"

Scott SLRM National Radio R-302/URE-22 Connection

Hello all... I posted on that above subject here a few years ago regarding a very unusual National receiver I saw at a Nearfest NH hammer which looked like a Scott SLRM that had been converted to miniature tubes and had different power supply components. I recently came across what I believe I saw at Nearfest on Nick England, K4NYW’s Navy Radio web site. It was a National R-302/URR-22. Nick has info that National was awarded a contract to build modified REE receivers in 1949. REE was the Navy…See More

Chris:

You are the second person that I know of who has described a receiver of this type (one not a member of this forum).  Unfortunately, I know of no other instance and no one else who has seen a Scott receiver matching this description or have seen any documentation of a receiver of this type.  I, for one, would be very interested in learning more about this receiver if it exists.

Anyone have any info on the SLRX?  There's a picture of one on a Great Lake shipping historical web site. I think I saw one, or something similar at a Hosstraders hamfest once...it looked like a redesign of the SLRM chassis using 7 pin minature tubes with their sockets mounted on adapter plates bolted into the octal sized chassis holes for the tubes.  Definitely not an amateur hack job, I think it even had a military R number.  Maybe it was made by National with surplus SLRM part lots acquired from Scott?

Amateur Extra AJ1G, on the air nearly 44 years now ..it all started with my Scott SLRM SN 1841 which my grandad gave me when I was 12 in 1964, my first real short wave radio.  I also now have an RCH/SLRF and an RBO in my vintage military radio collection.
