Amateur Ham Radio Repair/Alignment
For many of us, Ham or Amateur radio is a part of our everyday life. It is a convenient method of communication. We count on them! We depend on them. Without them - we feel we are isolated. They provide a means of entertainment. Some are units that are established as a base unit to provide means of contacting others or perhaps even a group. Others are mobile mounted to keep us informed of changes in our daily routine. Yet another type is a portable or HT (Handie-Talkie). These, we carry around, drop, sit on, etc. Ham Radio defects are typically not very severe.
Estimates are always free!
Currently, my work load is very heavy. Lag time is about 20 business days.
Sorry for the delay.
Please call or email before shipping any units.
Pack it well with hard foam and bubble wrap (not newspaper or old sweaters)!
Include description of all problems and complete contact info.
Ham Radio Repairs
Technical Specialists began in 1991 doing much the same as we do now: component level repair of electronics circuits. Ham Radio repair means that we replace the components on the board that are defective rather than replace the entire board. Transistors and ICs cost only a fraction of the cost of a replacement board (typically about 3%). Replacement of Ham radios usually costs from hundreds to thousands of dollars. Repair is a mere fraction of this. Our services are not restricted to transceivers. We repair Tuners, Power Supplies and whatever other accessories you have around the shack!
We service all brands including Icom, Kenwood, Yaesu and all others!
Please note that the repair shop will be closed the 1st of May thru the 12th of May for a much needed (4 years) vacation to spend some time with my grandchildren who don't even know me other than my voice on the phone. During this time I will from time to time come in to check on emails and voice messages. Also during this time units coming in for repair will still be received and logged in but no work performed. Please note that any units that arrive after April 20th may not be completed by that time.
Shop is open again. I have more than 40 radios yet to diagnose, and more on the way. My vacation appears to be over...
Feel free to call or email with any concerns. - Lee
Within 10 days (usually less) of receiving the defective ham radio, we will diagnose the problem and contact you with the cost of repair. In the majority of cases we have already done so as it is often difficult to be certain there are no additional failures. We don't just get them working and send them back because we back up our service with a 3 MONTH GUARANTEE!
First of all - Estimates are always free! You only pay us for a completed repair. If we can not repair it properly we will not charge you a bench fee. You will pay only the cost of shipping. We may charge a small fee to properly pack and ship it back (usually 30 minutes or less). Our labor rate is $35 per hour. You will not find a better price anywhere. How can we do it? It's because we have plenty of technical data, one of the most complete parts inventories anywhere and most of all - many years of experience. Most Ham radios are repaired in 3 to 4 hours while some may take longer. Parts installed range from $1 to $22 typically. Complete boards often cost hundreds...
