2017 Repair Facilities List (Updated)
N1GY- The simple Approach to Ham Radio
Amateur Radio Repair Facility Database
The purpose of this compilation is only to provide the amateur radio operators of The West Central Florida Section with a listing of the known repair facilities available. No endorsement of any facility is intended. The decision of which provider the amateur radio operator should select is left up to the individual.
The data has been categorized in the following manner:
1. Companies that are located in Florida.
2. Manufacturers that maintain a national repair facility.
3. Repair Facilities that advertise in national radio publications, or are known to the radio community in the WCF Section.
Where possible, the author has verified by phone call or e-mail the information contained in the database, but no warranty as to the correctness or completeness of the information is intended. In all cases, check with the repair facility selected before taking or sending equipment for repair, modification, or any other service.
This database is in no way complete. Service facilities come into existence, change hands, go out of business, or change their policies all the time. This listing is only the information that was available to me as of June, 2017. Modifications and corrections will be added as necessary and as time is available. Please send changes, updates, etc. to Geoff Haines at email address - firstname.lastname@example.org
REPAIR FACILITIES IN FLORIDA:
Rodney J F Clark

This operator was mentioned on the Technical Net as someone who does repairs on Ham Radio Equipment. He is an Extra class operator. I have no information on any storefront so I am making an assumption that he works from home. He also has been spoken of highly on the Tech Net.
4750 96th Street North, St Petersburg, FL
Dave Callahan, KC4WHO
General Class Operator
Metro Electronics is a parts sales and service establishment with a specialty in parts on LEDS but also has a full repair facility on site. Reports from local hams are very complimentary.

Mike does very good work, and I speak from personal experience, but the list of rigs he will work on is limited. He specializes in Icom and Kenwood base rigs. The only mobile rig he works on is the IC-706MkIIG, which happens to be my favorite rig. His service is outstanding. He is very certain of the procedure to get him to work on a rig but the results speak for themselves. See the web site first and follow all of the instructions. Shipping is via UPS Ground both ways
