100% Success, KWM-2 Repair  Time owned: more than 12 months
Hi, I had a serious KWM-2 failure that couldn't be repaired locally.  Online research revealed several highly qualified Collins repairers.  I decided to send mine to Hal due to the fact that he's an avionics technician.  As a commercial pilot, I have the greatest respect and admiration for the avionics profession. 

It turned out, that I made a good choice; not only was the repair a 100% success, Hal found and mitigated ALC problems that I failed to tell him about.  Hal assessed the KWM-2 and called me (I didn't have to call him).  Hal gave me a quick turn-around, and returned the failed parts along with the like-new KWM-2.  I appreciate Hal's advice on the 516F-2 power supply which enabled me to troubleshoot and repair the 516F-2 myself. Hal's knowledge, skills, and abilities are impressive.  What else can I say?  If I need anything Collins, I'm calling Hal.

Hal provides precise packing and container preparation instructions. Instead of using multiple cardboard containers, I shipped the KWM-2 in a Pelican #1620 case, using the Pelican supplied foam to contain the KWM-2, then I emailed the padlock combination to Hal.  The protection factor and efficiency of using a pelican case over cardboard is well worth it (for added shock protection, convenience and security).  I've used both Pelican and Hardigg cases at work, for years, with total success. Recommendation, if I may:  Spend the extra money and buy a Pelican or Hardigg case if you need ship your Collins equipment anywhere, then you can sleep at night, while it's in transit.

Kenwood TS-940  Time owned: more than 12 months
I was in the process of moving two years back and had some help from my Family so My sister In law garbed the Box with the 940 and it Fell down a flight of Stairs when I got it set up and turned it on it was ALL SCREWED UP. The display was not working and did not receive so I took it to HAL K6DPZ and he Brought it back to Factory Specs and I was amassed on how he did it.
Using his State of the Art Equipment He was able to Restore it Thank God. And I have other Equipment I have Brought to him in Total trust and have never been disappoint on his Service.

Terriffic!!!!  Time owned: more than 12 months
Once again Hal, K6DPZ, rescued the day for me by fixing a broken piece of amateur radio equipment!!!!
I have a Kenwood AT 230 that broke. Within 2 business days, the antenna tuner is back in line working great as if it just came out of the factory.
And the cost was very fair.
!!!!Bravo Hal!!!! YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!

The best in the business  Time owned: more than 12 months
I brought Hal my TS930S with a really weird problem. my ALC did not work on two(2) bands only. They were OK on all bands, and to make things more weird didn't work only on SSB.
Most people I spoke to suggested that I scrape it and buy some newer radio.
When Hal saw the rig, he said that they no longer make rigs like that, and asked to take on the challenge. I was ready toi spend cose to $ 5,000.00 for a new rig of the same type.
Hal fixed it, for very little money and I had it back in less than 24 hours.
Hal assured me that if the problem would re-occur he would repair it at NO CHARGE. WOW...
I strongly recommend Hal for any of your HAM needs. You can't find someone as trust worthy and with excellent qualifications.
Thank You Hal, Thank you LandAir Communications

OUTSTANDING !  Time owned: more than 12 months
Mr.Hal is an "outstanding" service technician. He will take a piece of radio equipment from you, that is in need of repair, and have it "professionally" back in working order in a "very short time." Mr.Hal is a very pleasant and easy person to deal with. He recently repaired my Collins KWM-2 transceiver. I have owned this radio for a long time. It always had issues, from "day one !" However, Mr.Hal put an "end" to that scenario, .......QUICK ! As we all know, everyone has their "specialty,".....his
is radio repair and maintenance. "HE" is "THE" true electronic equipment, ......DOCTOR !

Excellent!  Time owned: more than 12 months
Quickly repaired a Signal/One CX-11A. Enjoyable to chat with - very personable and knowledgeable. His shipping company did a poor job packing but luckily no equipment damage. Upon reporting this to Hal, he immediately refunded the packing cost! I highly recommend his service.

Excellent Service!  Time owned: more than 12 months
Bought a used Icom R71A several years ago and although it performed well, I knew it could be better. There were some power supply issues and the backup battery was going. Extremely quick and competent service-Hal kept me informed at all times and I enjoyed speaking to him. He is a former Technical School Educator, and his explanations were clearly understood. I would have enjoyed learning under him, he is extremely knowledgeable and personable. My R71A was finished in only a few days time and received it with a only a two day transit. Put it back on my bench, and wow!!!! It may be a twenty year old radio but it performs like it was new and then some. He did some work on the power supply and further realigned and repaired as necessary. I enjoy monitoring utility communications (not much into ham, sorry) and the pirates. The low noise floor and dead on frequency compares extremely favorably with my AOR 5000, which is no slouch on HF. Yes, I did pay a premium rate for his work but the end result is well worth it. Older radios are my favorites and I will keep this for many years. You can rest assured Hal will square away your rig with highly competent service. I will use him again! Thank you very much Hal!
