Purchased a few kits for a different radios including this one for a customer's Lafayette HB640. Brand name caps is what's important for my cb repair business. Sometimes it's tough keeping all the caps in stock so these kits work great. Can't beat Nichicon, Kemet and Chemicon caps. Great price as well.
Fast shipping and great cap kit. Now to the monumental task of installing over 100 caps. Thanks Klondike Mike!
Easy to solder in. Over the past 36 years I have been using Heil HC4 and HC5. This old PlusThree gets outstanding audio reports. Presently using it on an Elecraft K3 transceiver. Can hardly believe this old crystal mic element works so well.
Permanent mic on the radio desk now. Heil has been retired.
Pleased with the quality. Shipping time was better than expected from Canada. One could always source out and make up your own kit and save a few dollars, but this saved me a lot of time and energy, and that is worth money in my opinion.
Good products and fast shipping
These are quality capacitors without the hassle. The best support documentation included for each kit really makes this a no-brainer restoration project. I can't recommend these kits enough and will use them for all radios I restore from here on. Thanks Klondike Mike!
Recap almost done another CPI back burn up air wave thanks circa great kit ,and service
Great kit. Mike helped me get the exact kit for my radio. Once I started it became easier to find the exact pads on the back of the board. When I got finished and turned the radio on, the previous problems of internal feedback were gone. Radio sounds good and works like it did when it was new.
Well worth the time, effort, and cost. This would have taken a couple of weeks and more money than the radio was worth to have it sent to a shop for this kind of repair.
Excellent kit and spot on with shipping timeline! Highly recommend
Prior to replacing the capacitors, I couldn't even troubleshoot the other problems my rig had. Stray signals from leaking electrolytics were turning on transistors and shorting out the driver and final bias. Afterward I could actually measure proper signals again and proceed to troubleshoot other problems. It also made tremendous improvements to the audio quality of receive and transmit and overall rig stability.
I did find a couple of errors in my kit but this was due to errors in the original radio documentation. Klondike Mike was very responsive to my feedback and updated the kit with the corrections. I highly recommended their kits.
Klondike Mike's capacitor kits are the best. He provides a great selection and quality service and products for a great price.
I really appreciate that Klondike Mike’s kits have all the electrolytic caps I need to make my old radios new again. They have done all the work for me in selecting the correct capacitors. Thanks again
Thank you all for making it so easy to order one whole kit at a time saves me alot of leg work!
Received kit as described. Good packing, fast shipping.
