I live in EPA and have a Ten-Tec Titan 425 amp. I want to get it looked over, cleaned up and all components that degrade with age replaced. It is about a 1990 vintage and has performed well over these many years. Before shipping it back to Ten-Tec to have the work done I thought I would check to see if there is anyone qualified to do this kind of work in the north east USA. NY, PA, MD, DC, CT, RI, MA, VT, NH as I would feel much better delivering and picking it up rather than using UPS or Fedex. I might even be driving down to FL in the near future for a couple of weeks so someone that is a reasonable distance from I95 in VA, NC, SC, GA and FL might also be a possibility. Feel free to post or pm me here with any recommendation and contact information.

Thanks Bryan, I will be at Sussex hamfest coming up soon.   I will be staying with my cousin 30 miles East of Scranton off 84.  You can drop the amp off there if you want.  I have 2 of these amps myself.  I'd be glad to look it over.  Could probably use some new power supply filter caps.  Lou

Yes I replaced the caps, diodes and balancing resistors in my Tentec Titan a little while ago. It has been a joy to operate since then.

W1QJ would be your bet hope. I HAD a Titan 425 and it needed a bandswitch and that was $750.00, performed by Ten Tec. Mostly labor as everything is buried deep below the final tank components. Nasty design. Got rid of it and bought something serviceable........an AL1500.
