Very Good Service Again  Time owned: more than 12 months
Sent Cal an ICOM 746 that I picked up from an estate with no transmit on any band.He had it going in about a week & it is performing very well for me.It is the 3rd transceiver he has repaired for me over the years & he has also repaired several others for some locals & we have all been very pleased.Great rates & great communication as well.I know he knows what he is doing so I trust him with repairing my gear when & if needed.

Great service  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
My FT-817 had been sitting in a box for several years. Sent it to Cal for alignment and to check out one potential issue. Cal confirmed the suspected issue was nothing to worry about, did the alignment and cleaned the rig thoroughly. I wouldn't hesitate to send him another radio with problems.

Great Service  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Cal recently fixed two of my older radios. ( TS 850 & IC 735 )
Both came back quickly and fully functional with detail of all services and parts.
Email communication was excellent and prices reasonable.
I will absolutely use Cal for future repairs

Fantastic!!!!!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I will send other jobs to Ham Radio turn around, great communications, and very very reasonable cost.

A 85 YOA club member (Raytheon EE) had given me his SB-101 and speaker/PS that he built himself in the 60's,kept it and offered it to me for no cost as he was cleaning out his basement. He stated it may need a bit of work...and it did. I did the best I could with it but just couldn't get it to TX. Sent it to CAL and within a week he had called me and said it is ready ship back. When I received it, I was getting about 90+ watts on it for 20-40-80M. Also I planned on doing a thorough cleaning of the left side PC board as I did the LH side. It was covered with such grime and muck but as I did the other side. I just couldn't remove it. Cal also cleaned that too on his own & did a great job!
Tnx Cal!!!!!!

Outstanding Service  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Sent my Ft-1000MP to Cal for repair and it was fixed within 2 weeks as promised on his website. This is the same rig that Lee from Tampa could not fix. Cal brought it back to life within a few days, sent me an invoice and that was it. Quick and painless!

He kept me informed every step of the way, answered all my question to the point and even called me several times………..What a great guy..
Asked him if he could do an alignment and he told me that it didn’t need one because he had already done it………. What an Honest person!.
Invoice was prepared and laid out with self explanatory services and repairs done…………..What a professional..
His charges were kept to a minimum and didn’t charge for parts/services not needed………………Extra Reasonable….
Turnaround…………Within two weeks as promised….

Cal is a person I can truly trust with my Radios and I highly recommend him for any Radio repairs..

Thanks Cal and God Bless..

TS-440SAT Rx issue repaired  Time owned: more than 12 months
My trusty old Kenwood TS-440SAT spends a lot of time on the shelf, but I recently decided to fire it up. The radio worked but the receive performance on the upper bands, 20 and up, was very poor. I also noticed the meter panel light had failed.

Shipped it to Cal at and within about a week he had found a bad connection with the IF board and replaced the old panel bulb with a nice LED. I did have another problem when the radio was returned with the speaker jack and Cal fixed it promptly for no charge.

This is the second or third time Cal has fixed my old TS-440 over many years and I am very pleased with his service. Price is very fair.

A-1 Service  Time owned: more than 12 months
Sent Cal an IC-746 for LCD backlight fix. He cured the problem, and found (and fixed) another problem I wasn't aware of. Very fair prices, and excellent turnaround time. I'll definitely use them again for any future needs.

Recently sent a rig to Cal for repairs. It was quickly diagnosed, repaired to my satisfaction and expectations then promptly returned. I highly recommend for your repair needs.
