Spectra Leaky Cap & Tuneup

Post by Batman »

Who on here can change out the leaky caps on a conventional analog spectra and tune it up on a service monitor and what is the average price range.

I'm just a Ham and don't have a ton of $$$.

i may be getting one in a trade and want to take care of the leaky cap issue before it becomes a problem.
Thank You,

Robert

Batman & Sourapple613 -- Check your PM's. The choice between myself and Will usually comes down to geography or who's backlogged at the time.

Happy communicating.

Hey Bruce, please pm me, I have sent you a couple of e-mails to see what your turn around is now, but I think the address are incorrect or you may have an old e-mail address for me
Thanks
