Awesome service and expertise  Time owned: more than 12 months
I own several older Icom radios, and some newer ones as well. Scott has serviced or repaired many of my radios over the years. They are always right when I get them back with zero issues. He has an incredible knowledge of Icom radios. I would never send one anywhere else. Thank you Scott!

The best  Time owned: months
Three separate repair experiences and all 10/10. The finest repair tech. What more can I say? You'd have to be crazy to go elsewhere. I have local repair people within a 20 minute drive from my home and I still choose to ship my rigs cross country to Scott.

V ery Honest & Reasonable  Time owned: more than 12 months
He is very busy, probably because he is so honest and a great tech. Found the problem and didn't charge me.

repair  Time owned: more than 12 months
I can't recommend MTS enough for Icom repair and advice.He runs about 3-4 weeks turn-a-round because He is the best there is.I use him and trust him on all Icom repairs and upgrades.He replaces most Icom parts with tougher,better devices.Words like fantastic,etc are not enough.

MTS said "yes" when others said "no"  Time owned: more than 12 months
After being rejected by other more proximate ICOM repair centers, I turned to Scott/MTS for resurrecting my ICOM 271H multi-mode 2 meter transceiver. Based on prior 271 work, Scott was confident he could repair the basic problem (PLL failure), and did so for a reasonable fee -- while finding a few other items that required attention. Scott/MTS is a valuable resource for older unit ICOM repair, and is highly recommended ... which is why so many others have rated his service a "5".

Amazing Service  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
First off, I want to thank all of Scott's customers that came before me for writing their reviews. That is what lead me to use Scott.
I'm definitely a Rip Van Winkle Ham, I got out of the hobby 30 plus years ago. When I returned, my Icom 211 and Icom 701 were Smithsonian pieces. The 211 powered up, but that was all it did. I shipped it out to Scott and he gave me an honest evaluation of the unit. I decided (with Scott's advice) it would not meet my needs for 2 meter operation today. Scott recommended I find a 271 or a 271A. I found a 271. I had it sent directly to Scott. When he received it, he immediately saw it was a 271 from Australia. He gave me a price to upgrade the unit to a 271A. I received the unit yesterday.
Now let me tell you about the upgrade. It works perfectly, and Scott went the extra mile and changed the face-plate to say 271A. He also printed out the 271A manual and put it in a binder. My 701 replacement, a 751A is on it's way to Scott.
In today's world it is amazing to find a craftsman who still remembers who the customer is.
I would recommend Scott for any repair task he is willing to take on.

You won't be disappointed  Time owned: more than 12 months
Icom no longer services 746 non pro, but Scott does. The FM went out and Scott replaced a trimmer that was the source of the problem. He ALSO updated PA,updated firmware and performed other checks to insure optimum performance. This radio performs better than it did when brand new. The price was right and all aspects of the the transaction were very professional.

About to send another one out to Scott  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have been using Scott for about three or four years and every service is excellent. I just acquired an IC-575 with a few issues and it is getting packed to send. Scott is worth the wait no matter what his current backlog.

Excellent ICOM Repair Service  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
MTS was willing and able to repair my IC-7000 whereas ICOM WA refused to do any troubleshooting. ICOM simply refused to take time to troubleshoot any main board components and only wanted to install a new board at $700+. MTS found the problem on the board in a few days and the radio is now perfect. I spoke directly with the ICOM service manager and he told me it would cost more to fix the board than just replacing it. I guess ICOM is just to busy, or they don't have the expertise with the 7000 any more.
