|Basic Repairs by mail Order. Example here: a Ten Tec Argonaut 515 Audio Board.
|I am only doing small repairs like this circuit board. This one came
in the other day mailed to me from USA. It is the audio board from
a Ten Tec Argonaut.
I have all the parts in stock for this board. In this case, the LM380
IC needs to be replaced- ( a very basic repair).
I dont repair entire radios unless they are my own (as a general
rule). I have found it to be too time consuming and sometimes
problems crop up when fixing old radios that are a real bugger to
fix. -- I NOW STICK TO SIMPLER REPAIRS that are basic and a joy
This repair to the Argonaut 515 board will cost the fellow $18.00
parts and labour which includes testing the board in my own
Argonaut 515 before I send it back to him. Of course, he is also
paying for the postage to and from. It is expensive enough to
send things by mail to get repaired so I keep my charges very
My shop rate is a very flexible $10 per hour sort of thing.

|NOTE: anything comming here should be by MAIL and not
UPS or other commercial couriers FROM USA.
The Department of Homelands Security paper work causes
the commercial couriers to charge a hefty "brokerage fee"

ordinary post mail is reliable and relatively inexpensive.

|Here are some pictures and information on my ASSIST to a USA ham who had an
HW8 with a core that was fractured and stuck in the coil form. I did some
measurements and sent him a kit of parts to aid him fixing the coil (or perhaps
actually cloning up another good substitute. TOTAL LABOUR and parts about
$15 for this project. (my rates are retirement hobby rates- I can quote you for
