Highly Recommended!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Looks like this may be the 100th review. 100 reviews with a 5.0 average! I am happy to add my 5 as I received prompt service, excellent communication, and a radio that seems as good (or better) than it was 13 years ago. After many QSOs later, my K2 needed new finals, a new battery, upgrades, and alignment. All was done expertly at a resonable price. I highly recommend Alan Wilcox if you need any work done on an Elecraft transceiver!

K2 Reset and Calibration  Time owned: more than 12 months
After a long break from the hobby, I now have time to devote to amateur radio. While reaquainting myself with my Elecraft K2, I encountered a receiver issue which I could not resolve on my own. Alan did a great job for me on a build project (not this K2) a few years ago. So when my radio acted up, I was glad when he offered to check it out for me. Alan quickly had the radio working properly again, recalibrated and good to go in practically no time. Turnaround time was less than a week.

Thank you, Alan.

Excellent communication  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I picked up a new-to-me K2 and sent it to Alan for a tune-up. Alan suggested a few mods and updates - and I am glad that I took his advice. Lots of good communication during the process. Great rig and great, prompt service.

Excellent in every way  Time owned: months
Highly recommended. Alan lives up to his well-deserved reputation as the go-to guy for Elecraft servicing/assembling/upgrading. Communication, price and quality are all superior. If you've got an Elecraft issue, don't hesitate to contact him.

Outstanding Service  Time owned: more than 12 months
I recently sent my Elecraft K2 S/N 2153 to Alan for a tuneup and to have the filters re-calibrated. I also had the AF Gain pot replaced per Alan's recommendation. The rig performs better than expected. Never thought the K2 could sound this good. Total turnaround time from Alaska was exactly 1 week! Prices are fair and the service is first rate.

excellent K1 alignment and repair  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I recently bought a used K1 that had problems with the tuning range and resolution.

Alan repaired and aligned it with turnaround time of less than 10 days. The results were even better than expected. The K1 is now an awesome sounding receiver.

Highly recommended.

Alan updated special K2.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Alan is an excellent individual, very fare, and extradinarily knowledgeable. He is an excellent communicater and performs his work in a expeditious manner. I would highly recommend for all your Elecraft repair, alignment, or kit building issues.

Excellent Job on the KX1  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Alan did an excellent job at a very fair price on my KX1. I contacted Alan ask him for help and a few weeks later I have a KX1, to be proud of. Thanks again Alan for your great service and repair. The alignment is perfect. I could not be any happier.

Alan goes to 11  Time owned: more than 12 months
You fans of This Is Spinal Tap know what I mean. Alan rescued my KX-1 from the knackers yard, expertly, promptly and at a very fair price.
He's also fun and interesting to talk to.

excellent service  Time owned: more than 12 months
Alan found my KX1 beyond reasonable repair due to battery leakage exposure on the circuit board. He charged me the absolute minimum for his investigation. What is important here is being able to report that his service will be fair and prompt.
