    Well, that sounds like good news!
    I'm needing a radio worked on. Not looking for anything special, primarily a tuning & alignment as far as I know.

    No that shop is gone gone and if I’m not mistaken his name was Walter so that’s what I’m hoping that he is opening back up he is one of the best I’ve ever seen.

    I will be excepting mail-in repairs in the not too distant future I'm in the process of getting it all set up. This what it looks like again but just like my repairs it has to be right and that takes a little more time for a bench like this but I will get there.. Below is what it should look like except there will be more equipment I'm adding I was able to pick up my older equipment along with a ton of parts cabinets.

    Unfortunately, Mike is no longer working on amplifiers. He can’t keep up with all the request for radio repairs and had to limit the kind of things he works on.
