Great!  Time owned: more than 12 months
Turner Radio is a totally professional shop. Chuck repaired two poorly wired vintage Ameco AC-1 transmitters expertly. He kept me updated during the whole process, including shipping, explained the problems, and even gave me some much needed advice. I will be sending more of my Boatanchor equipment his way, including a cathedral radio from the 1920's.

He provides a truly important service and I'm really lucky I found him.

Excellent Work!  Time owned: more than 12 months
I brought my FT-736R to Turner to have the Symek 38k4 satellite mod installed. The radio worked flawlessly for High speed data with my TNC2S. Chuck really knows his business. Highly recommended.

Great High Desert Repair  Time owned: more than 12 months
Had good dealings with him. He worked on my TS-450 and IC-756PRO. Neither were working right. Turns out the problems were in my shack. Had him tune up both rigs. They work great. He charges $65 per rig for tune up. Well worth it.

Great!!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Finally we have an expert to do alignment, cleanup, etc, right up here in the High Desert. He did a really great job on my old beat up TS-450S. Turned it back into a great radio.
Thanx Chuck.

excellent repair work  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've had Chuck repair newer and old radios for me. He does it all well and within reasonable cost. The old Atlas 210X is now within specs and has full output.

From wa6jja, IC-775DSP Repair  Time owned: more than 12 months
Chuck did a wonderfull job in repairing and retuning my IC-775DSP Transcever. It works better than ever. Even the filters work now.

Great service, fair price.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I have taken several pieces of gear to Chuck Turner and he has always done a great job and his prices are fair. He was able to bring my basketcase FT-736 back from the dead. He's not necessarily the fastest repair shop around, but he really knows radio. I highly recommend him. Ken

Does everything right  Time owned: months
I took my old Kenwood 850 radio in for service and he found a very subtle problem
and fixed it promptly and realigned the
radio so that the transmitter and receiver ran far better than when it was new.
I am happy Richard
