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.
