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.

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.
