Old Radio Technical Services  Jay Mendoza

Offering repair services for older radio gear.  "I would like to offer a link to my e-mail so your members can contact me for assistance in renovating and technical help with older radios. We have recently been working closely with Zel Ritchie and have a couple Space Controls working, one is going to be flown in a Ugly Stick, then we plan on putting it in an Astro Hog. Dan Hines is building a Phantom from the original plans we received from Jerry Nelson, as that was Zel’s original plane he flew at several Nats, and world championships.  I also have worked with Lee Renaud, (Airtronics) Big John Eliot and Eloy Marez, (Orbit) Doug Spreng (Digicon & Micro Avionics) Steve Helms(Radio South & Futaba) having been employed in the R/C field doing repairs from 1978 to 1993, a period of 15 years. Prior to that, and currently, I still repair radios. Most recently Bob  Harris has sent in some radios. My specialty is  tubes, single channel (carrier and tone) analog proportional and Pulse/Galloping Ghost. Most vintage digital proportional systems can be retro-fitted with modern receivers and servos, some guys even re-use the original cases, so we don’t do too many, but I’m game. I recently restored a Digimite 4RS for a guy in Japan"

Full Service Ace MicroPro 8000 Transmitters  Dan Thompson 

    Specialized full service of ACE MicroPro 8000 transmitters (MP8K), both 72 MHz and Ham bands.
A) Full service of the transmitter is offered if needed and includes.
    1) EPROM upgrades.
    2) Encoder repair.
    3) RF deck repair and tune up.
C) Custom devices.
    1) ASAP device to offload aircraft setups from the transmitter.
    2) Voltage regulator for the RF deck so higher voltage batteries can be used.
    3) Conversion kit for OEM RF decks so the MP8K can be put on 2.4 GHz easily.
D) Parts.
    At this time, parts availability is limited. I stock only a few parts and must reserve
those for customers for whom I service their transmitter.

   I released the level 5 code upgrade in 2005 and level 6 was released August 6, 2008.
   In May of 2006 I was given complete and full rights to the MP8K firmware (Software).
