Phantom Power Supplies

I discovered something today that I had never noticed before. Background - I am working on an FM Phantom which has the later Jones plug connector. I just made a crossover cable with a female Jones plug to a standard Scott round plug to test the tuner with a "standard" amp. I was double checking my new connector and saw the 6.3v filament line on the amp I was working with (my working  set in the Stratford cabinet), had the CT grounded. The Jones plug amp with the FM Phantom was grounded on one…See More

4-unit sound systems

Posted on November 12, 2021 at 2:23pm 4 Comments

When the FM models were introduced in 1940, Scott also began offering a "4 unit" sound system. We've seen tweeter sets with the AW23 and the early Philharmonic sets (both use a Y-cable from the pedestal speaker to two tweeters). The 4-unit systems included a crossover box where you connected the bass speaker and two tweeters, and it also had a jack for an extension speaker. The crossover and 3 speakers constituted the 4-unit system, which sold for $29.50. Later units had a smaller crossover,…

Reproduction Scott knobs

Posted on September 26, 2021 at 10:16am 0 Comments

One of the most requested items are Scott wood knobs. Forum member Ben E. has created actual wood reproduction "S" knobs for the late 30s sets. These are universal to everything from the Philharmonic to the Laureate (1937 to 1942). Please check them out at:

The FM Phantom that wasn't

Posted on March 14, 2021 at 10:40pm 3 Comments

So this interesting chassis landed here this weekend, thanks to fellow member Dave Poland. He brought me a Phantom Deluxe, but I quickly realized, it was originally supposed to be an FM Phantom. In the first two pictures, note the plugged tube holes and the plugs and extra holes on the side of the chassis.…

that image is great! I will add it to the archive. Thank you!

Kent;

I hope this attachment works. I finished the composite figures 26 and 30 for the Late version 800B. I found this helpful in tracing out the electric tuning arrangement of the 800B receivers.

JoeIf this turns out to not be satisfactory resolution and detail, let me know and I will try sending the *.pdf file which is 5.3MB.

Kent;

I took a closer look at the Late 800B parts radio tuner chassis that I have. It is SN 6182 and I found its final test stamp inside the preset tuning assembly backplate and the date is Jan 15, 1947. So that one can be added to your database.

I took the time to take a good photo of the Late version 800B AM SW RF compartment underneath. This unit has never had any parts replaced in that area, so this part of it is unmolested. I had just noticed that the Early version SN 1035 that I have had already been worked on and there were some changes to bypass capacitor placement that I do not agree with. My intent is to put it back as close to original lead dress and parts placement as possible. Sometimes changes in part placement and lead dress can cause significant problems to develop and result in inability to properly align RF circuits.

Thanks you! I have added your cleaned up diagrams to the Scott Info Archive 800B folder. Your work is greatly appreciated!

Kent;

Yes I am willing to contribute these for fellow members and others use. I enjoy doing this type of work. I was originally in product documentation at Collins Radio which included doing schematics.

Joe -

That's great...when you get them done, I will post them in the archive if you are willing. All such work helps everyone here. That is what this forum is all about!

I will be working on the late 800B schematics as time permits.

Kent;

I have been cleaning up the schematic for the early (Feb. 1946) schematics for the 800B. Here are those two pages. I am working on another page that combines the radio tuner circuit and the electric tuning circuit on one page. The paper size is printable on 11 X 17 inch paper for the two files included here.
