Excellant Service  Time owned: more than 12 months
Paul Hanson's Icom repair service in Anderson, SC is a great place to get your ham gear repaired. I have had several pieces of equipment repaired by Paul and have been very pleased with his work, price, and turn around time. He specializes in Icom gear but will fix most types of amateur equipment.

Great repair, quick turn around  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Paul repaired my IC-746PRO's optical encoder. The part from ICOM costs $100.00. Paul took the initiative to fix the encoder and gave me the option to replace the part or try the repaired encoder. I opted for the repaired encoder and it works perfectly. Paul also checked the radio for proper functionality, thoroughly cleaned it and fixed the feet opposite the handle as well. The rig looked so good when I unpacked it, I took a double take to make sure it was mine! I appreciate Paul for going the extra mile as he didnít have to repair the part, just replace it and call it a day. The cost was reasonable and the turnaround time was quick. I have already recommended Paul to a friend and will certainly look to him first for any future needs I have. For the record, Paulís last name is Hansen with an e. I chose to post under Hanson as that was where I found him in the first place and didnít want to divide his other reviews up. You can check his webpage at

Icom 725   Time owned: more than 12 months
Paul repaired my ICOM 725, and it has never worked any better than now. Paul even apologized to me that the repair took about two weeks. Kept me up to date until it was repaired. I hope I can keep the ICOM 725 for many years to come. Had it since 1989. Paul is great.

Excellent and Professional  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Very satisfied with Paul's work. He was able to zone in on the problem over the phone. The rig (Icom 756PRO) was repaired and back home within two weeks. Repair cost was reasonable. Highly recommended!

bad experience  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
Sent Paul my IC 725 for repair. I admit it has a strange problem that comes and goes. Paul worked on the PLL circuit and aligned it and sent it back. Right out of the box the radio would not even power up. It finally powered on but still had the same issue. I called and he said return it and he would take another look. Paul called me and said the radio was not repairable and sent it back. I paid him $200 and the radio now does not work at all. The radio did work most of the time before he worked on it but now it is dead. Thought he might refund a small amount of the repair bill but he has just ignored me. I would look for someone else to work on my radios and not Paul.

Superb  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Paul was kind enough to discuss my issues with an IC 746pro by phone before shipping. He had me make some observations and tests. As it turns out I could not get it to Xmit. Paul knew instinctively what needed repairing. So, off it went and was returned working in under 2weeks. He's very good in his communication. Trustworthy and knowledgable.
Great experience.

Sent Paul my Icom R-8500 that went deaf. Paul fixed it and I had back in under two weeks . I would highly recommend him. A good person to do business with.

FANTASTIC !  Time owned: months
I am fortunate to live within 10 minutes of Paul's shop. Called him up about 8:30 Monday morning he said to come right over. Icom 756 Pro III was having a power issue. Paul put the radio on his bench right as I walked in the door. Traced the issue to my power cord inline fuse holder. Fixed it within 5 minutes handed me back the radio and said " good DXing my friend " . Would not even let me pay him. Great guy ! Great customer service !
This was my first experience with Paul but his reputation proceeded him. Everyone I know says he is the best and now I can add my voice to that ..... THE BEST !

Excellent  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
3rd experience with Paul's service. Quick diagnosis of the problem, fast turn around--even when parts had to be ordered,-- and a fair price.

What more can one ask of a service shop!

Highly recommend
