PROCESS or "FIXUS INTERRUPTUS"
We generally work on
up to 6 radios concurrently. The reason for this is simple. At any
one time the work on a radio can be halted for:
Most radios that we
have on our bench at some point in the repair cycle, requires that
we special order tubes, special capacitors, high wattage resistors,
etc. This can take as long as 18 days to order and receive items.
Most radios we work
on require that we notify the owner about anticipated repairs and
their costs. Other times we need to ask questions about the history
of the radio, verify return shipping addresses, present our final
bill for payment, etc. All these communications incur delays and all
communications are done with Email.
difficult repair jobs, we sometimes seek advice and opinions from
other repair "guys" particularly as relates to a specific models.
Also, many times it is useful to "step back" for a few days and
noodle on the problem.
