Envelope for Allwave Deluxe Instructions

I recently received the original envelope that the instruction manual for my AW Deluxe 12 came in. I have attached here a scan of the really neat cachet from the left side of the envelope.

Unfortunately there was no postal date stamp since a precancel stamp was…

My Philharmonic featured on SWLing Blog Post

I subscribe to an excellent blog called the SWLing Post. It is run by Thomas Witherspoon, a man who has boundless energy.

Recently he featured a Crosley radio that was competing for the high end market back in the late '30's. At the end of the article he asked if any of his readers had a 'benchmark' radio. 

I responded with a few photos of my BOL Philharmonic and he created a post from my information.

You can check it out at: …

Replacing the 7 capacitors in the Bass Box

My Philharmonic had a number of problems when I first began to repair it. Once all the major problems were taken care of (thanks mostly due to several very helpful people on this forum) I finally got around to the nasty bits. There is rectangular box under the chassis which I think is called the Bass Boost Box. All seams are fully soldered together and the wires that leave it come out just one hole. It was recommended that I change out all of those capacitors. I saved that job for…

WTWW Christmas Photograph

The shortwave station WTWW runs a Christmas event each year. They ask listeners to submit a photograph of the radio you are using while listening to Christmas music on their station. 

Last year I submitted a photo of a Zenith Trans-Oceanic I was using.

This year I took a photo of the Scott Philharmonic which I recently put back together and placed in my radio room so I can use it. My photo is below. ( the knobs are all wrong - someday I will find a set).…

E. H. Scott Product Placement at Klingberg Vintage Motorcar Festival

6/20/2015

Radios are not my only hobby interest. Old cars also make me smile. For that reason my wife and I attended the Klingberg Vintage Motorcar Festival in New Britain, CT today. 

I wore my Scott T-shirt thinking that there might be some fellow radio enthusiasts attending the event. I'm always ready to talk radio.

Well, there was no talk of radio but I did happen to meet the Grand Marshall of the event, Wayne Carini. Most mornings I watch him on TV as he appears in…

6K7G Vacuum Tubes at AES

I just received an order from Antique Electronic Supply.

Just in case anyone is interested, they have some real nice 6K7G tubes in true NOS condition for only $2.38 each. These are JAN  military spec. tubes with the RCA logo on them. They look real nice and work just fine.

I also purchased a JAN 6J5WGT to replace my 6J5G which was highly microphonic. The tube I received works nicely and it is also a new condition (NOS)…

SLR-M featured in SWLing Post article

The SWLing Post is an excellent blog that I subscribe to. The owner, Tom, featured his recently acquired Scott SLR-M Marine Radio in a story about a short range AM transmitter, the SSTRAN AMT3000. He uses the AMT3000 to transmit music. He then receives and plays it on the SLR-M. A video is included with the story.

The link is:… Continue

All-Wave 23 in article on Museum

The SWLing Post just published a photo tour of the National Capital Radio and Television Museum of Bowie, Maryland. One of the featured radios is the E. H. Scott All-Wave 23. The article is worth a look.
