A recent change
was made to the business. We have dropped the repair of
Amateur Radio equipment. This change may be fairly temporary.
If the status changes, this website will be updated to reflect
the change. Thanks for all the past radio repair
PROFESSIONAL REPAIR SERVICES: If
you want your equipment repaired right the first time around,
then you have come to the right place.
After repair, your equipment will be powered up for several hours and undergo testing to insure proper operation. All equipment is treated with TLC and serviced in a "non-smoking" environment.
Read what our customers have to say about our service at eHam Reviews.
For airport runway lighting systems repair, see our labor rates listed below.
HAM RADIO AND CONSUMER ELECTRONICS REPAIR LABOR RATE: $55 per hour. (There is a one hour minimum
charge) On average, equipment repairs are complete in 1.5 ~ 2
hours, possibly 2.5 ~ 5 hours for units with really tough
problems. We will be reasonable about the charges, not
exceeding the estimate without your authorization. E-mail us
at email@example.com with your model and a description of the
problem and we can usually give you an idea of the average
cost of repairs. The repair estimate charge is based on the
hourly rate. The more modern and complicated equipment, or
lightning or shipment damaged equipment, will typically end up
with a higher estimate.
ALIGNMENT LABOR RATE: There is a large
variation in the time that it takes to align radios. It
differs greatly from one model to another, even within the
same brand and class of radio (ie. HF, VHF, etc.). So
alignments will be charged at our standard hourly rate
If it is found,
during alignment, that repairs are required in order to bring
the equipment into alignment, you will be contacted in order
to approve the repairs, and charges, before the work is
completed. If repairs are declined, the alignment charge will
still be billed due to time spent.
RUNWAY LIGHTING SYSTEMS LABOR RATE: The onsite labor rate is $75
per hour. For parts requiring bench repair, a rate of $65 per hour will be charged plus the price of parts used and any shipping charges. Travel time will be charged at the $65 per hour rate. All onsite, or bench repair, labor rates carry a one hour minimum charge.
WARRANTEE: For ham radios, we
warrantee our work for a period of 30 days from the day that
the item is shipped back to you. We stand behind our
