Radio Repairs

Hello

My hh vhf needs some repairs. The on/off switch is a bit loose and whenever touched the radio goes off. Probably a loose connection.

Anyway it is a Swiftech who have unfortunately gone bust!

Any ideas where I can send it for repair?

Keith, I've got a mate in Warwick who's a real whizz with anything electronic. I haven't spoken to him for a while, but last time I did, he was running a TV/monitor/ repair business from home. He'll also talk the hind legs off anything that moves! I will PM his details to you if that's any help.

Thanks Richard

It looks as if the on/off switch is a bit loose. If it does not require and specialist parts then it should be repairable.

Will await pm with details.

Thanks

Duff radio

I think Swiftech repairs are now carried out by the Silva service centre in Glasgow. The downside is, you have to send them 25 which they keep if the set is irreparable but it comes off the bill if they can repair it.

Keith, a guy works for me who's knackered his Swiftech battery, sourced a new Swiftech h/h VHF for him, I'll check if he'll send you the old set.
