First Class Service  Time owned: more than 12 months
Sent Tim my FT-1000D and had him install 2 W8JI Mods...did a fine job..also he did some replacement items like Battery and S-Meter Bulb..But, what really was outstanding was I had a intermittent cw receive signal that would wobble once in a while..He stuck with it until he found the cause and fixed it..Thanks Tim!! plus did some alignment to the radio as long as he had it..The price was very modest and from my door to his was only 3 weeks..which includes shipping both ways..I couldn't be happier with his work and will go back for more when i need it.

Great Service  Time owned: more than 12 months
A few years ago I had a radio that needed repair. I checked here for reviews and I saw the good reviews for Midwest. I sent the radio to him, got the radio back promptly, it worked fine, and the price was very reasonable. A few months ago a different radio had problems, and there was no hesitation in knowing where to send it for repair. Tim had to order some special parts that he normally doesn't stock (MY LUCK!) and by email he kept me advised of what was happening. Again, the radio came back promptly. The radio was fixed and working great and the price was reasonable. I will not hesitate to use Midwest again if needed, and I heartily recommend him. 73 Don K2DV

Excellent Experience  Time owned: more than 12 months
I sent Tim my FT1000D for repair. For some unknown reason the rig worked fine when Tim received it and has worked perfectly since I got it back but he still gave it a good going over and fixed some damage done by UPS in transporting it. His service was excellent and his rates were very reasonable and I would highly recommend Tim to anyone and will not hesitate to send my equipment to him in the future.

OUTSTANDING  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Tim is a gentleman who provides superb customer service and an honest appraisal to begin with. I was impressed, and sent my sick TS520S to him. It came back 100% operational within 2 weeks.

This rig has sentimental value to me; I got it as a teenager with paper route money brand new in 1979 (took me a long time save up). I did not want to part with it.

Tim understood, and helped me make my decision to send it in for repairs: no pressure, a realistic estimate of what it would take. I also asked him to check over my little gem for overall health. He found several other issues and fixed those. VERY reasonable price. TERRIFIC service. Tim, I am a customer FOR LIFE! THANK YOU!!

Fast turn around  Time owned: more than 12 months
Too bad the ratings only go to 5. Like "EZU" in the previous post, my Yaesu also developed static and crackling, 'cept it is a FT-897D. Exchanged a couple of e-mails with Tim, and sent it off on a Friday. I would have gotten it back on the following Friday.... IF I'd been home. Instead Fed-ex delivered it that Saturday. SEVEN days round trip. Did I mention the FAST turn around time? Noise is gone. Works GREAT. Price is reasonable. Midwest Tech/Tim Moes is now in my e-mail address book.

A national treasure ,  Time owned: more than 12 months
My Yaseu 857D bought in 2008 , hardly used and NEVER put in a bouncing mobile started to suffer from the "crackles of death". This defect ( apparently common on 3 yr + 857D's ) is characterized by crackling on HF even if the antenna is disconnected. Sent my radio to Tim and he got it on a Friday. Emailed him on Tuesday for a status , and he told me that the radio was repaired and on it's way back to me. He charged a reasonable rate, but its incredible that he sent back the repaired radio BEFORE being paid. Radio is now back in the shack, and is working well. Incredibly fast and efficient service. Use this guy if you can.
Thanks Tim!!

Fast, Reasonable service.  Time owned: more than 12 months
My TM-d710a got the dreaded receive problem and went deaf. I emailed Tim and he was familiar with the problem. He not only fixed the problem, but performed the mod so it won't happen again. Great job at a good price. I recommend Tim highly.

Great Job and Very Fast  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Tim received my Yaesu FTM-350R on a Monday and had it repaired the same day. I had it back by Thursday. Repair charges were reasonable. Tim stayed in touch throughout the process. Not sure what else you could ask for. I'd use him again.

expert and gentleman  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
Tom provided very fast service...he reported on my Kenwood R5000 and tentec RX320 within a day of rcving them and had them back up to speed one business day after that. He was willing to work courteously with me via email only as I have no telephone here. He provided daily "progress reports" via email. I would reccommend his work and use his service again. He prefers to work only on modern rigs and I quote him from his email message, "... Sorry..but I work on mostly just Kenwood, Yaesu and Icom equipment. It gets really tough to get parts for the older equipment..."

Honest and Quick  Time owned: months
I sent Tim my TS-480SAT that was inop. He checked and notified me that it worked as it should. He suspected the cable from the radio to the head. He updated the firmware and sent the radio back. I could not ask for a more honest repair. Further he sent me the rig back without prepaying for his time. Awesome! I will use him in the future for sure! By the way I did check the cable and it looked good but continuity checked showed bad. Cut about an inch off the end I suspected and put new connector. Problem solved!
