Outstanding In Every Way  Time owned: more than 12 months
Alan is an outstanding builder, and communicator. I sent him a partially built K2 project, with assorted parts and pieces from my various K2s over the years, and he was able to build, align and test the unit that exceeded the expectations of a perfectionist like myself.

Alan was a superb communicator every step of the way, calling, or emailing as needed with a problem or question came up. His suggestions spoke of years of experience, and a confidence that I knew when the unit arrived back from his workshop, it would work well, the first time out. I was not disappointed. Having built a number of K1, K2 and K3 in the past, I was impressed with his assembly and soldering skills, even down to the little details that most would never turn a board over to look at, Alan did.

In short, take it from a fellow K2 builder, this is the man you want to build, repair, align, or troubleshoot your Elecraft unit. He's that good. And he's a gentleman as well.

A solid 5  Time owned: more than 12 months
With nearly 90 reviews and a 5.0 rating, there's not much more to be said on Alan's behalf. He fixed an issue on my KX-1, tuned it up perfectly, and it was back in the field with me inside of two weeks (including cross-country shipping.) TNX Alan.

K2 Tune Up: Excellent & Professional  Time owned: more than 12 months
I wanted a professional to run my K2 through the paces and tune it up where needed. Alan did a superb job and I am so happy with the report he provided. He is thorough & now its up to me to use the K2 wisely :-) ... Thank you Alan. Job well done.

Excellent quality and service  Time owned: more than 12 months
Alan updated my very low serial number K2 with all current revisions, installed a serial IO board, replaced the battery, and did a complete alignment.

Great workmanship. Reasonable rates. Fast turnaround. Good communication throughout the process. Highly recommended.

Trustworthy  Time owned: more than 12 months
I was about to realign my K2/100 because I was never happy with the alignment. Luckily I found Alan's web site. Alan received my K2/100 on the 10th and the radio was back on my desk on the 17th of January. My radio never sounded so good. You will not make a mistake with his services. And he is nice guy to boot!

Excellent Service and Quick!!  Time owned: more than 12 months
Alan was excellent in all aspects of his service. I sent in a KX1 which had a few problems. He diagnosed the problems, called me and informed me as what was needed. The total time from sending the radio in to getting it back was 2 weeks--WOW!! His rates were fair. I would not hesitate to use him again or refer him to others. Thanks Alan

Highly recommended  Time owned: more than 12 months
Highly recommended. I sent Alan an Elecraft K2/100 I had purchased in the Dayton Hamvention flea market. Problems included power output problems and an intermittent Anderson Powerpole connection. Alan repaired all reported problems, found and repaired additional problems I wasn't aware of and also performed an alignment/tuneup. Alan kept me informed with phone calls detailing his progress. Turn around was quick and the K2/100 worked flawlessly after Alan was done with it. Excellent work by Alan at Wilcox Engineering - highly recommended.

Great Great Service!   Time owned: more than 12 months
My second K2/100 was sent to Alan for retune and ready for an upcoming DXpedition. Alan had it back to me within two weeks. I tried it out and was disappointed as reports indicated a severe "buzz" on my signal. I called Alan and he talked me through a series of tests. Turned out the issue was at my end with a power supply issue. He could have just had me send it back (shipping and bench time costs) and there still would have been an issue when it returned! I have three K2/100 and Alan will always be their caretaker! Great guy! de K8AQM

Satisfied K2 customer  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have an Elecraft K2 that I assembled 10 years ago. It needed some repair, upgrading and alignment. I selected Alan Wilcox from the Elecraft list and contacted him. I sent him the K2 and now I have a new K2. I highly recommend Alan for his K2 expertise. He is in contact with you and informs you of what needs to be done. Thanks Alan for an excellent job.
