Text Background Color

Posted on December 29, 2016 at 6:19pm 3 Comments

I am wondering if there is any way to change the background color displayed with the text of posts by members. I have difficulty in reading the text with the gray background color. I have had cataract surgery and have to use a magnifying glass in order to read the posts. A white background makes it easy for me to read the posts without resorting to the magnifying glass. I was able to make this change on my personal page, but not here on the forum or blogs.


800B Schematics and Relay connection differences

Posted on November 23, 2016 at 10:40am 1 Comment

Overall E H Scott Co. did a great job of documenting the 800B model versions, however, there is one area where they seemed to go into uncharted territory. The labeling of the Jacks and Plugs on the two chassis tends to lead to confusion. Normal practice in the industry is to have J numbers coincide with their mating P numbers. In the case of the 800B: the P1 Receiver plug of the Receiver chassis mates with J3 of the Power Supply chassis; P2 audio plug of the radio chassis mates with J4 audio…


First Introduction to E H Scott Receivers

Posted on November 15, 2016 at 8:45pm 5 Comments

My first exposure to E H Scott receivers was through a friend who had acquired an 800B which was not functional. I was working in consumer electronics repair at the time. He had been unsuccessful in finding anyone who could repair it in Dallas. I finally agreed to try. It turned out to only have a shorted bypass capacitor in the FM IF strip that took out a B+ isolation resistor. It played fine after parts were replaced. No tubes were at fault and were still working very well.
