About us

As a radio hobbyist since the seventies, I came to the realization that these/my old radios were having problems and that electrolytic capacitors were often the culprits. There are many of them in vintage radios. The Cobra 2000 was my first patient and it was time consuming sourcing the parts needed. There were a few local electronic parts suppliers back then ... now??

This is where my kits come in. I've done the research in identifying what components are needed in the radio. I source tier 1 components from major North American distributors. I buy capacitors by the thousands every month, so they are fresh and haven't been sitting on the shelf for years. No Chinese counterfeits will be found here. This phase takes a lot of time that you may not have (or want to do).

For some radios I include additional documentation to assist in the replacement of the components. Some radios get values that are changed to improve the operation of the radio. All kits include electrolytics with voltages ratings which are higher that what the radio came with (usually greater than 25v). This is a good thing! All kits are provided with a shopping list of all the components included (via download linked PDF). Details are provided within each listing.

My kits are packaged and shipped from my location here in Western Canada, Edmonton, Alberta. Good luck with your re-cap!
