Scott Philharmonic 30 tubes 1938 tunning indicator problem.

Hi folks.

Does someone have the schematics for this radio? Or does…

The AW27 is yet another one:

This makes the 18th AW27 set. In spite of this number (more of these exist than the pre-war FM tuner), there is no advertising, documentation or really anything on the "Baby-Q".

If you have any letters, documentation, an ad...if you have anything that might tell us more about the AW27,…

Question about original Scott owners.


I am new to the list.  Our museum ( just acquired our first Scott receiver (an A-15 Metro)  for our communications collection, and I am currently involved in restoring it. Since these were custom built radios, I was wondering if there exists anywhere a serial number listing of E.H. Scott's original clients who purchased sets.

I would like to find out who originally owned the set that we just…

Small Hoard of EH Scott radios

Greetings to everyone.

My new area of interest is to branch out into tube amps, so I keep a look out for items so I can start tinkering around, but I am indeed a beginner.

A couple of months ago, I happened across a small hoard of gear that had been stored away 40 years ago in an outdoor shed. The…
