I have repaired and restored Collins amateur radio equipment for over 37 years! When I was a teenager and repairing equipment for others, I would have given almost anything to be able to afford a piece of Collins Equipment. Now that I am retired and the children are grown, I am able to purchase just about what ever I wish, provided my wife approves.
I am the proud owner of a KWM-2, 30L-1, 312B-4, 516F-2, & 75S-1 combination. You will find me using it when I am not on the ICOM 781.

I have many of the Collins Radio Service Bulletins. If you need information on any of those that I have, send me an e-mail. For a list of what I have - CLICK HERE
