Amp Repair  Time owned: more than 12 months
I had Lou repair my Kenwood TL-922A and my Drake L-4B. He did a great job. He is very knowledgeable on the amps. I would recommend him to any one that want the old style tube amps repaired.

Great Guy and Real Expert!!!  Time owned: more than 12 months
Wow where do I start? Okay I met Lou about 2 years ago now. I purchased my first Ten Tec Titan 425 amp and after running it with no issues for a few months, I had a glitch resistor blow. I didnt know at the time what the problem was and posted here in the amp forums in which Lou was very quick to respond and I eventually sent the RF deck to him. He quickly found the problem and turned my Amp back around to me in about a week. He sent me a few extra resistors just in case and charged me what I thought was a very minimal fee for his work.

About 3 months later, I had a power supply issue with that same amp. Once again I posted and Lou came to my rescue, Off went my power supply to Lou and after he spent some time replacing diodes, caps and resistors, some of those new components blew again. After more inspection we determined that I had the dreaded short in the plate transformer. I ordered a Peter Dahl replacement and after 3 months of waiting Lou got my power supply running again and shipped back to me. Once again with a very reasonable bill for his time. He spent a great deal of time talking with me as well helping me along the way.

I now own 2 Titan 425 amplifiers and am now having issues with the other power supply. Lou has be graciously helping me to troubleshoot the PS myself and even sent me a replacement interlock switch he had as a spare for himself.

Lou is a real gentleman and an asset to our hobby! We could use more guys like Lou, I would even go so far to say he has been like an "Elmer" to me and I appreciate that! I have never met him in person but am looking forward to the day at a ham fest that I can shake his hand and talk with him in person!

Thank you Lou!

LK500 Repair  Time owned: more than 12 months
Lou is a great man to work with. He not only assisted me with a component board for my LK500 amp but the eventual repair of this amp. His time and dedication to solve my amp repair was far above what I expected. Excellent communication skills as he walked me through every attempt to resolve my initial issue.

I also purchased a LK500 6 meter conversion amp afew years ago and it still performs beyond expectations.
In summary:
Fair prices and excellent customer service

Repaired My QRO  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Lou repaired my QRO HF2500DX in good time and for a very reasonable price. Most know Lou from his 6m amplifier conversions. Well, he also repairs amplifiers. I am good with some repairs, but relatively new with amplifiers; so I turned it over to a seasoned tech.
