Title: Repairs
Post by: KE6ZMY on June 19, 2013, 05:16:53 PM
I have a couple of mobile units that I would like to get repaired. I am not sure if I am breaking protocol here... But can anyone recommend a good repair shop? I am more interested in the quality of the work than location. I do not mind shipping the radio(s).

If they are current production models or recently discontinued, send them back to the manufacturer.

Scott at MTS does a great job and is quite reasonable.  Malcom Technical Service

http://www.angelfire.com/biz2/mts/

he specializes in Icoms  but works on lots of gear.  nice guy, responds to emails good, phone, not so much. email him for a quote.  He is also pretty fast on turn around, biggest problem is waiting for parts.

Matt -

Many radio technicians and repair shops for legacy radios, no longer supported by mfg.,
specialize in radio manufacturers, models or eras for repairs and restorations.

Parts availability and backlog (weeks) is the issue for many radio repairs.
TELL US what radio mfg. and models you have.
