Good afternoon Mr. Witherspoon,
Just wanted to follow up on a contact for fixing several shortwave radios from the primarily the 70s and 80s, preferably someone located in the DC Metropolitan area, Virginia or North Carolina. These would include the Zenith R-7000-2 and General Electric World Monitor P4990A. Is this something that you could post on your blog? If possible, please let me know either way.
Great question, Mark! It’s difficult to find radio repair technicians these days.
I have a couple of suggestions, but perhaps the SWLing Post community can comment with even more options!
You might check with Vlado at HamRadio.repair. He has worked on some vintage solid state radios in the past–he’s located near Asheville, North Carolina.
Also, you might reach out to the National Capital Radio & TV Museum in Bowie, MD. They offer classes in radio repair and I imagine they would be the best source to find a technician in the DC Metro area.
Post readers: Please comment if you know of other resources for Mark!
