Need a rig repaired. Apparently, this dude can do it.

SWL'ing rip:   https://swling.com/blog/2022/06/servicing-older-icom-radios/#respond   and   https://hamradio.repair/ 

Makes me glad that I've had Icom service the IC-745 and IC-735 when I did. And, I've had decent luck with Kenwood East, when I wasn't able to do it myself. Yaesu??? Forget it... BTW, I've 1st heard about this guy from doing ribbon cable repairs on Sony ICF-SW100S clamshell portables.  I did the 1st cables swap-out myself in the late 90's, but need to do it, again. This guy claims to do the cover modifications to keep the ribbon cables from severing. So, I'll have to give this dude a try myself on that, since I'd love to get that portable going again.
           Hope that this INFO helps for anyone need rig repairs.
I was asked if I liked the 80's pop band The Go-Go's, and I answered that I listened to them, like many other Top 40 pop bands of the time, so Eh. However, I did mention that I did kind of feel sorry for them, since I thought that the band members couldn't have sex. I was then asked, "What do you mean?" My reply was, "Duh... They sing about it themselves, their lips are sealed!".
