Feedback for Hybrid Restore

I want to Thank You for the great job you did restoring my Kenwood TS-830s, it exceeded all my expectations. The communications were great, ensuring all questions were answered to my satisfaction, before committing to the restoration. The status updates throughout the restoration progress, gave me a comforting feeling that my prized possession was being handled in a professional manner. 

The finished product now performs as new, I have more than 100 watts across all bands, where some bands were less than 20 watts before the restoration. I almost forgot how great this radio can look, until I took it out of the box and saw what a great detail job you performed on it. I will be returning to you for any work I need in the future and will not hesitate to recommend you to members of my radio club.

Much Appreciated!

I found Jim as one of the best professionals for Kenwood radio repair/restore service.
My Old TS-830S has been realigned and restored to bring back the original performance level, physically, electrically, as well as cosmetically.
Response is very quick and price is very reasonable.
I will come back to him when I have another radio to restore/repair.

Thanks !!

Just wanted to let you know I put up a Buckmaster OCF
dipole last night and tuned up the restored 820 on 80 meters. It was a
bad night for radio, but I was able to get to local friends and ham it
up! They reported good tone and strong signal!

Just wanted to drop you a note and say thank-you very much for the parts. I installed the RF board and the coil and the rig fired right up and works great. The marker board works good too.

The rig still has one small problem with no output on 15 meters, but it works everywhere else perfectly. 

Just checked into the Kenwood net with it and got a good report, even with the contesters all around us. I really appreciate the help Jim, you helped me save a nice old rig.
