"We have had this discussion before.  There are two versions of the tweeters differing only in the plugs and sockets on the tweeters.  Electrically they are the same.  Either set of tweeters will work with either version of woofer. The…"

Norman S Braithwaite replied to Kent King's discussion FM Tuner problem
"Definitely try a couple different 6J7G tubes if you have not already done so.  FYI, the limiter tubes in the 800B often operate very different than identified in service data but as long as they are not overheating components, they work. Norman"

"Yes, there should be a decal on the speaker.  More importantly, your AW-23 was originally equipped with tweeters.  As such the jumper cable coming out of the speaker is plugged into "socket 2" (right socket viewed from the…"

Norman S Braithwaite commented on Thomas Fickau's blog post Scott 800-B6 My First Scott Radio.
"Tom: I think some of the earlier 800B sets were simply marked 800.  Does your set labeled Model 800 have the pre-war FM band? Norman"

Norman S Braithwaite replied to Paul Moreci's discussion Scott 800B
"There is a switch on the back of the tuner chassis for external/internal antenna.  The switch looks like a short potentiometer shaft with a screwdriver slot.  Make sure it is in the external antenna position. Norman"

Carr Fire

Posted on August 1, 2018 at 11:41am 3 Comments

As some of you know, the Carr Fire has exacted a great toll in the City of Redding and surrounding area.  My house and half of my collection was the first visited by the fire in the devastated Lake Redding Estates neighborhood with no advance notice to evacuate and no fire trucks around.  Fortunately the house and collection were spared.  Unfortunately, however, I have learned that the house and collection of an acquaintance including several pre-war Scott receivers was lost and that another…

Shielded Grid Wire

Posted on May 20, 2015 at 2:48pm 1 Comment

Shielded grid wire with cloth insulation is not easy to find but is an appropriate replacement for the shielded wire with rubber insulation (now failing) employed in many Scott models.  A roll of shielded grid wire with cloth insulation is currently being offered at the link below.…

That's how sad that screwup made me feel.

Better than some of the celebrity mugshots I have seen. Kinda rivals Gary Busey's mugshot.

Mighty glad to become a member of this organization.  I look forward to many conversations in the near future.  Currently I'm working with Bill Bryan to find an A.W. 15 to add to my collection.  Incidentally, Norm you have been invaluable at helping me with my A.W. 23 and A.W. 12, dual dial and thank you for the invite.

Norman, glad you personally are OK. Threats from fire are unnerving.
