After 38 years of repairing amateur radio equipment and being over 70 years old the fire has about gone out. My wife and I have decided to take an extended sabbatical and see some of this great country of ours. To this end we will not accept repairs after February 15, 2019. All radios received before that date will be repaired and returned to the owners. The 30 day warranty will remain in effect. We have both enjoyed what we have been doing and have the best customers in the world. I will continue to provide help via the internet and limited phone help during our extended sabbatical. This fall we will re-evaluate and determine the next step. I appreciate your understanding. 73, Clif Holland KA5IPF Millie Holland W5AUX I have been getting calls and e-mails asking where to send radios to be repaired I can recommend Bill Grassa www.N4ATS.com He also has a very high E-Ham rating

What Happens When it Arrives?
Once a radio is received it is logged into the shipping log and placed on the “Waiting” shelf to be repaired. It is also
placed on the repair board by date. The radio is not looked at until it's “turn” comes up. It seems I get
emails or phone calls daily wanting to know the status of the repair and most of the time the
answer is “Waiting it's Turn”. Once a radio is placed on the bench it is either: Repaired, needs parts not in stock, or
the owner needs to OK the repair due to cost. If repaired, an invoice is done and e-mailed. If parts are needed
the owner will be notified that parts are on order and an ETA if known. If needing an approval an email is sent.

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.
