Amplitude Modulation and Bandwidth...

Started this discussion. Last reply by Michael Lawton Sep 30, 2021. 4 Replies

     Over the years I have heard a lot of discussions about bandwidth in AM radio. Thinking about the basics of amplitude modulation, I never quite understood what all this fuss was about, or exactly…Continue

I'm starting this thread to document the progress on my 800B, amassing the components, and then the eventual restoration, testing, sorting out of problems, more testing, and eventual final results.…Continue

Want to buy 800B power supply /amp

OK, I'll admit it, I've been bitten by the E. H. Scott bug. After refurbishing my SLRM and seeing how well it works, I saw an 800B on eBay which I could not resist for the "buy it now" price of $75 !…Continue

"Sounds like that Deoxit made a big difference. Keep working at the improvements. You have a great radio that is no longer produced and which few people will ever enjoy. We radio people have all the fun!"

"I ran through all 4 bands tonight, very slowly scanning through them. The AM broadcast band is MUCH better. I am able to get WSM 650 KC out of Nashville very clearly at night now, and many stations all up and down the band. I do notice that stations…"

"Well, indeed the radio performed better tonight, I got more stations across the AM broadcast band including WSM 650 KC in Nashville. I was able to receive WWV on both 5 and 10 MC. WRMI 5.95 MC from FL came in very strong, and there were many…"

"Thanks, Norman. That makes a lot of sense that they are the root of the shutdowns. Another radio person on Facebook also told me that these caps are the likely source of the problem. I will also rewire the plug since it appears backwards to me…"

"I will surely replace those capacitors! Thanks for the advice. Currently working on an RCA 143 that I must complete first. Then I’ll update the Scott."

Norman S Braithwaite replied to Michael Lawton's discussion Restoring My Scott SLRM
"C-159A & B should be replaced with 0.01-mfd capacitors.  They are perfectly adequate for the application and the 0.1-mfd capacitors will pass enough AC current to trip GCFIs. Norman"

My 800B tuner chassis arrived...

Posted on March 3, 2021 at 10:47pm 4 Comments

Today the 800B tuner chassis I bought off eBay for $75 arrived. It seems to have traveled none the worse for wear. I was rather surprised to find that just this tuner weighs as much as my whole SLRM, or seems to just picking it up. I haven't actually weighed it. Now that it has arrived, here are some pictures of it...…

I am sorry for such a long delay in responding!  I have a Scott SLR-F and two SLR-M receivers and am amazed at their quality and engineering!
