Default Icom radio repair??

Hi everyone, Does anyone know of anyone who repairs older amatuer radios? I have an Icom 735,(probably mid 80s era) and had a bad on/off switch. opened it up and lost all power to the rig(before I even got to the switch) I dont feel comfortable tearing any deeper into it. Thank you for any info, Tim....

Here is a list of ham radio repair centers & reviews of their service. The age of the Rig will be a major problem if an IC is blown. HTH.

After many years of using Icom equipment I have always found that their service and repair activity is first-rate. They're not cheap, that's for sure, but they do the job and they do it right.

I have had GREAT service from Matt Adrian KD8ZB who does ICOM Service Center Michigan. He is listed on the ICOM site as one of their service centers. He has had my 746 a couple of times and did a great job at reasonable prices.
