Here’s a few links to some of our colleagues and friends in the industry

 

CB & Amateur Radio Repairs

Our good friend Nick Parker (M0NKL/M6NAR/2E0POS) has been repairing legacy equipment since the mid 80’s. He specializes in some of the ‘Old Skool’ repairs particularly some of the older analogue CB sets and also repairs RF and Audio amplifiers. You can see from the image that Nick also enjoys delving into some of the older HAM sets (Seen here with a legacy Yaesu FT101E). Nick has been running an original Vortex Q82 for quite a few years and has very high regard for it, saying that the Quasar Q82 performs exactly 2-S-Points better in receive and transmit than the Sirio Vector 4000 and will survive for a lot longer. See his comments HERE.

Amplifiers from Bruce Gary Engineering

They say “Life is too short for QRP” and our friend Bruce Gary is testament to that! Bruce is a US builder of bespoke amplifiers capable of up to 20kw (and more!).
These commercial grade units are something rather special. In the enclosed image we see a test unit producing around 8kv on the plate with around 3 amps current draw – that’s a lot of power which was delivering around 18kw output. Bruce tells us that he produces various bespoke amplifiers for both commercial and amateur use up to 20kw and more.
