Services

Thanks to my top-notch test equipment and years of circuit design experience in the RF sector, I am able to offer superior service to the amateur radio community. This list is not comprehensive and only includes the most commonly requested services.

No hidden fees, no surprise charges. All prices include pick-up and drop-off within 10 miles of Little Rock, AR. Shipping fees apply for services outside of this service area. Out of state customers are more than welcome.

Upfront payment (cash or credit card) is required. My large stock of spare parts guarantees a fast turnaround time of typically less than 7 days.

Radio programming Service

Diagnostics- $ 69.95
Don’t know what is wrong with your radio or amplifier? I’ll find out for you! The best part: If you book a repair service with me based on my findings, I will refund the entire diagnostics fee towards the repair cost.

Health Check / Alignment – $ 99.95
Bought a used radio online, at a hamfest or from a fellow amateur radio operator? Then this service is what you need. I will assess the radio’s current health condition, give it a good clean-up and align it using calibrated test equipment.

Capacitor Replacement / Recapping – $ 99.95
In many cases, a capacitor replacement is all that an antique radio or amplifier needs to be restored to health. I always have plenty of capacitors with the most common values on hand. This ensures a fast turnaround time. Capacitors are sold extra and are not included in the service fee.

Parts / Peripheral Install- $ 39.95
Installation of a peripheral part such as a CW / SSB filter or a tube replacement.

MARS / CAPS Mod- $ 49.95
Enjoy the full bandwidth of your radio. Most radios can have a significantly expanded transmit frequency range if properly modified. This can be very useful for transverter or emergency communication use.

Health Certificate – $ 39.95
Planning on selling a used radio? I will thoroughly check your radio and document the results in a health certificate. As third party validation, a health certificate can significantly increase the willingness of prospect buyers to invest more money into a used radio.

Programming – $ 19.95

I can program many radios according to your wishes and specifications.

Hourly Labor Charge – $ 69.95
Is the service you need not listed above? No problem! I can assist you with almost everything. Contact me for a quote.

On-Site setup / installation – $ 69.95 / hour
Need a technician to come out to your location and install something or set up something at your home location? Perfect, this service is the right one for you. Outside a radius of 10 miles around little rock, a $ 0.50 / mile charge applies.

  1. Hello,

    I have friend (not an Amateur Radio Op however) that is looking for someone to do a design and build of a WiFi/GPS receiver combo unit. He is wanting a small number of prototype units to start with and if it works as desired, they would purchase around 1000 units. The outfit is Boeing, he is located at one of their offices in So. California. I have a design spec that I can send to you if you are interested, just let me have your email address.

    Normally, I would handle this but my wife has just recently had a knee replacement and I am going to be playing nurse for her for the next several weeks.
