I'll offer these here before listing on that Big Not-To-Be-Named Auction
Site. I'd much rather keep them 'in the family' so to speak.
I have three WRL Globe Scout Deluxe AM Transmitters, 80-6M, crystal or
external VFO, single 6146, etc etc.
Two of them have *consecutive serial numbers* - these two work equally
well with the same exception, described in a bit. The third unit is mostly
tubeless, very grungy, and good for Parts.
The Good Pair have been tested with an 80M xtal installed and both are
producing power and good-looking modulation. One of them has good chrome
and case, as well as shiny aluminum knobs. The other has good chrome/case,
but the knobs need to be buffed out and polished - they are lightly
oxidised. The 'parts rig' knobs are hideous, but I imagine they'd clean
up with a bit of work and maybe some Maguire's aluminum wheel cleaner.
Both of the working pair do not Load properly - the Load control has
little effect. The plate dips and there is plenty of drive, and the units
are making about 50-60W. Both tend to flash over in the final compartment
if not dead on tune. One unit worked 'normally' for about 10 minutes,
then the plate tune variable cap flashed all by itself, and from then on
it, too, exhibits the 'loading' problem. One rig has had the rectifier
relaced with diodes via an old tube base - you can simply remove them and
install the proper Hollow State rectifier if you wish. The other is all
These three units are for sale together, and I will not split them up -
the good pair due to the provenance of the serial numbers, plus I don't
need a broken Globe Scout lying on the shelf with all the other Project
Radios... so my intial offer is: $250 (100 each, and 50 for the parts
rig) for all three, and I will professionally pack and ship anywhere. I
gladly take PayPal, Money Orders, Cashier's Checks or good old Cash...
no personal checks or 'certified' checks, please. Shipping from Carson
For more info, pictures, reasonable counter-offers, etc - please reply
to me PRIVATELY, not to the List.
Again - please edit your "Reply-To:" so that jpl15 at panix.com appears,
and do not CC: the list. Everybody already read this once.... ;}
