Terrific Service - Fair Price  Time owned: more than 12 months
Learn from your fellow hams! Donít send your FT-1000 series radio anywhere else. Byron simply did fantastic work on my 1000MP. I couldnít be happier. After the repair, Byron performed all of the suggested Yaesu field modifications and he installed the INRAD roofing filter in the 1st IF. Byron presented me with a very detailed invoice and returned the bad components along with the radio. The price was very reasonable and the turn around was prompt.

Great Job!  Time owned: more than 12 months
Recently had Byron go thru my 6-year old Mark V Field. Byron found some issues with it, corrected them, and gave the radio a good "going thru". Also installed some better filters. Excellent communication from him. Reasonable pricing. Quality work. Will definitely use him again if the need arises!

Very Happy with the Excellent Service on my FT1000MP Mark V  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
After receiving a number of reports that people were calling me and not being able to hear them, I decided that it was time to have my FT1000MP Mark V evaluated by a professional. I purchased the radio new 2004, and never had it serviced. After reading the reviews here, I sent the radio to Byron and asked him to check everything out, and apply all of his standard mods. It turns out that there were a number of problems, and Byron replaced whatever parts were necessary (and returned the defective parts). Byron also made some suggestions on menu settings, and returned the radio in better than new condition. I'm very happy that I sent the radio to Byron, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. His charge for time and material was substantially less than I was expecting to pay. A very positive experience! TNX, Byron.

Great Service on my FT1000MP Mk V Field !  Time owned: more than 12 months
Just wanted to add my thanks to Byron and let everyone know what a great job he did on my dead
FT1K Mk V Field ! A nearby lightning strike did it in. Byron's expertise brought it back to life, and with the checkout and alignment he did,
it actually hears better than I can ever remember! His email communication is great and the turn around is very quick (about 2 weeks for me). You have to contact Byron and let him put you on his monthly schedule. Once that's done, just ship the radio to him using his shipping guidelines and he takes care of the rest.
I'm glad the rig is back in line now and operating better than ever. Byron gets an A+++ from me !

Excellent Work and Reasonable Price  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
Byron is by far one of the best technicians I have found. I met him this summer when I delivered my Mark V Field for repair. He showed me his latest homebrew project. It was a transceiver that looked like a commercially built unit. His work on my Mark V Field was very reasonable, He went beyond the actual repair and aligned unit to make sure all was working correctly.

Outstanding!!!  Time owned: more than 12 months
What a positive experience! Good communication, very fair pricing, short turn around time, and problems solved. In this day and time, it doesn't get any better than this. My Yaesu FT-1000MP is back in its regular place in the shack.

Can't be beat!  Time owned: more than 12 months
Second trip to Bryon for my Mark 5, my wire antenna excells at receiving E.M.P.. Reasonable costs, quality workmanship, fast turn around, what more could one ask for.

Running on all cylinders  Time owned: more than 12 months
My Mark V Field was serviced and returned by Byron Campbell in what seemed like no time. It was the first servicing since its purchase in 2004, and the transceiver looks and performs like new. (Byron also installed at my request the INRAD roofing filter mod.) Just another satisfied customer.

I continue to believe that if one can resist the lure of the LCD displays and DSP functions common to the new rigs, that the Mark V Field with the INRAD mod can hold its own quite nicely in terms of overall performance. In addition, its appearance and its ergonomics IMHO cannot be beat. Us Yaesu fans are lucky to have a quality service facility for our Mark Vs, given that Yaesu itself is no longer supporting these fine radios.

Great work/Excellent service  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
My name can be added to the ever growing list of satisfied customers. I sent my FT1000MP Mk5 to Byron on Jan 28. I received an e-mail on Feb. 10 that my rig was repaired/updated and ready to be returned. The fee's were very reasonable for the work done.
My rig works as good as new if not better. If you have an FT1000 series radio, I highly recommend his service. Thanks Byron
