very well satisfied!!  Time owned: more than 12 months
my fears of sending my 30 year old rig off to someone I didn't know have been quelled. Hal and I spoke about my yaesu ft 101zd he found the problem and sent it back probly better than it had come from the factory.he's one hell of a nice guy. found my problem and sent it back faster than I had expected it. so, you think I'll send him other rigs to repair??you bet!! many Thanks Hal!!Al wooden from polo, illinois

FT1000D  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The main VFO tuning knob on my Yaesu transceiver FT1000D froze and Hal replaced the rotary encoder. When Hal called to check with me I remarked how much better the receiver performed. Hal realigned the receiver. The turn around time was very good. Thanks for a job well done.

Collins Microphone  Time owned: more than 12 months
Hal did an excellent job with the repair of a Collins SM3 microphone last December. The price was reasonable and turn-around / shipping was very fast.

Thanks Hal

Amateur Radio Repair  Time owned: more than 12 months
Hal has worked on several radios for me and has done an excellent job everytime. His turn around time is great and whatever the problem was, he always consulted with me first and told me the cost before any work was performed. He is the only person I would trust with my radios, he does excellent quality work and stands behind it. Never be afraid to send him work, it will always be done properly.

Icom 761 Repair  Time owned: more than 12 months
Left out that Hal performed wonders on my Icom 761
with about a 10 day turn around time.

Tried to edit my first report I wrote, but damned if I could find out how to do it-Ha!

A ham's friend  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I called Hal and talked to him about a Heathkit HP 14 power supply problem. He immediately identified a possible cause of the problem and suggested how I might verify his suspicion. After talking to Hal, I checked and sure enough, he was correct. He was more than willing to help me solve my problem rather than suggest I send the power supply to him. I have dealt with Hal before and he continues to be the ham's friend as well as someone with great technical ability if the problem needs his attention.

I highly recommend Hal and the service he provides.

TS-790 Repair  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Had my TS-790 repaired by Hal recently. His service was fast, the radio works great, and the price was right. What more needs to be said? Except maybe he is a great guy to talk to as well. I highly recommend his service. Bought the radio new back in 1993, works like new after a visit to Hal in 2012.

Fast-Reasonable-Reliable: Great Service  Time owned: more than 12 months
I recently had Hal of Land Air Communications repair my Elecraft K2-100 transceiver. I had problems with the transceiver about a year abd a half ago and sent it to Elecraft to be repaired.

Elecraft did a very good job in repairing it and they have an excellent reputation for service and advice. However the turn around time for the repair at that time was over two weeks and the bill came to a lot more than I expected, around $300 to replace a chip in the transceiver.

Hal told me he would not have charged as much as Elecraft did for that repair and that they probably did charge a premium for being Elecraft.

Anyhow for the repair this time to my Elecraft K2-100. Hal's service was fast, reasonable -less than what Elecraft would have probably charged, and he is very reliable.

I highly recommend Hal for all your service and repair needs for Amateur Radio Equipment at Land Air Communications.

Great Service AAA+  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Sent radio in for repair a Yaesu FT 757GX. It had been loaned to me by a ex fellow ham.
The first time that I turned it on it smoked.
Sent the radio to Hal for repair he fixed it for a very economical price and sent it back to me.
When it arrive I discovered that it had been damaged in shipment.
Hal did not hesitate,and asked me to send it back so he could look at it.
I sent it back, he fixed the radio again, sent the radio back to me and did not charge a dime...
Great service... Good work... Good price... Hal has a great personality.
I would not be afraid to sent all my fellow HAMS to Landair.

A hams best friend in our own back yard  Time owned: months
After being inactive for nearly a decade I've returned to HF and have also reinstalled my dual band mobile radio in my car. The radio, a Yaesu FT-7100 worked properly for a month or so but one afternoon after turning the radio on, it went, as they say in the trades "stupid" on VHF with poor VHF reception (UHF remained unaffected), or so I thought. A call was placed to Yaesu who told me that they would no longer service the FT-7100 . However, they did recommend Hal of Land Air communications who, as it turns out, was in the NY metro area. I called Hal and arranged for him to have a look at the radio. A day or so after receiving the rig Hal told me that as far as reception goes, the radio met spec and he mailed it back. After receiving the radio I found the condition to be the same as when I mailed the radio to him. Another call was placed to Hal and he invited me to come to Land Air with the radio. Hal spent time demonstrating that indeed the radio was functioning normally on his bench. We then went to my car and found that a local repeater barely moved the L.E.D. S meter. Hal explained that this condition could be caused by many things and that if I'd like he'd be happy to attempt a fix for me. A day or so later Hal called to report that he had resolved the problem by creating an interface to make the proper software alignment adjustments to the radio. His charge was nominal, far below what his hours spent resolving the issue should have been.

After inspecting my radio, Hal took me on a tour of an older hams fantasy land. Land Air stocks rack upon rack of classic radio equipment, all in perfect working order. I saw every radio I used from my first radios , a Johnson Ranger 1/National NC303 to my first SSB xmtr, a Hallicrafters HT44 with matching receiver, which I did not have and radios neatly stocked from A-Z. Basically, anything you can think of in vintage radio, Hal has it in perfect working order. I did happen to glance at some of the prices marked on some of the radios and honestly, they seemed very fair. It wasn't the price that kept me from buying my dream rig of yester-year, it was the space, but someday.....

A few other things must be pointed out. When I paid a visit to Land Air, I left my reading glasses in the box with my radio. Hal was kind enough to pack the glasses, case and all, to be shipped with the radio. I received the box last night and found the glasses on top of the packing material, where even I could find them. Thanks Hal!
