    I had past dealings with this guy.... And all I'm gonna say is take your work elsewhere.
    Just my two cents

    Sent 4 radios to Smokin Joe's about 5 months ago and I am down to the last one that works.

    What exactly does that mean they were all fixed and now only one works?

    I think he means to say they didn't last long (not reliable)?

    Galaxy 99V has gone into a scan mode and there is not a scan mode on this model. Can't get it to stop. Ranger 2970N2 had a cold solder and now the slightest bump sends the radio to 28 MHz and with a slap on its side, the radio will go back to 24 MHz(back to 11 meters with a push of a button). 2510 tune done by Doc out of Buffalo was taken out and now the receive is muffled and all the radio's do not have any modulation.

    OldTech03 did a great job on my 99v. I will be sending him another radio soon. Check it out:

    I have to believe Mike just got overloaded with work from his YouTube channel. I just sent two older Bearcat scanners to him for restoration, so we’ll see if I hear from him when they’re done (I expect to hear from him).

    I figure he just stopped posting videos because it only created more work for him. I have had the pleasure of talking to him on the phone in the past (he called me with questions regarding a previous repair), and he is just as he seems on his videos. He has always done a great job on my radios, and I hope to send a few more in the future.

    He has also done a great job on my radios but he has been very quiet for the past 6 months on his YouTube channel. I thought that he might be taking a well deserved vacation. :)

    For a while, he was talking about developing online classes. I wonder if thats where he's been.

    Mike gets swamped because sometimes when he gives a quote to refurb a radio, the people send him six instead of one.

    Maybe Doc's tune is laying around there on his bench, send the radio back and have him put it back in.
