    Living in western pa. And only 65 miles away from bob's cb shop its a pleasure to have him in my back yard was up their Sunday to get my connex 3300 hp worked on, went over the radio and $49 later and in less than a hour I'm out the door..high power swings 69 and low power swings 46...radio sounds great,,if you ever met the man he might come off being a little hard to get along with or cold with conversation but going there for 15 years be has a lot of radio's to fix its amazing.. he doesn't accept mail in anymore he does so much warranty work that he only takes walk in work,, I definitely appreciate having one of the best in my back yard .....

    being a good repairer (with a good rep) and a youtube queen = slower turnaround
    thats the trade off in becoming a internet queen

    mike prob gets 100 emails or more a day ..x that by 5 mins each ..

    only 1/5 of them will be people that actually are people wanting HIM to repair their radio

    ..the rest will be made up of guys wanting free repair info or to bitch about how some one else ripped them off
    then the guys that go all the way to get prices and quotes and say yeap i am gonna send you my radio and nothing more from them (time wasters) which like it or not make up 50% of emails

    every tech gets what i just said..good or bad

    mike seems like a good guy we have spoken via email (he came to me) have seen his videos (man he rambles lol)

    god i wish i had time to produce videos...but then who wants to listen to my voice ?(prob the very few that read my online rambles lol)

    I understand what you're saying but keep in mind he received my radio way back in August, and he told me in September that he should have the radio aligned and shipped back to me within a few days.

    To be continued........................

    I'd watch your videos. It's hard to read your accent on paper.

    Mike used to be pretty fast but a 5 month and counting turnaround time is pretty damn slow. :(

    My comment was all in good fun. Joe Dirt really crossed the line though. :D

    Too much time snickering and giggling on YouTube. Maybe the fame got the best of him.

    I talk with Mike frequently. He is quite busy like myself. Heck I get well over 150 emails per day. Over 2k in my inbox. Most will never be answered. Just no time.
