See what others say, go to;


I started in 1981 repairing Ham Equipment for Electronics Center Inc (ECI) in Dallas, Tx.

In 1993 ECI closed and I added ham and electronic repair capabilities to a Audio Visual VIDeo business owned by my brother under his business name of AVVid.

Subsequently AVVid applied for and was granted the designation as a “Factory Authorized Service Center” by Kenwood USA for warranty repairs.

In Nov 1995 the ham repair part of AVVid was sold to Tucker Electronics to open their Service Center. In 1996 Tucker Electronics sold the Ham Radio section to HRO and the ham radio repair moved back to AVVid, except for Warranty Service.
