  Repair of Radio Broadcast Equipment

"Anything man-made will eventually need repair"

Bohn Broadcast repairs Marti, Moseley, Orban, QEI, Nautel J1000 modules and Omnitronix AM transmitter modules. 
Bill Sacks at http://www.optimod.fm and http://www.optimod.am repairs and updates Orban audio processors.
We have successfully repaired RF oscillators for Gates/Harris BC, MW, SX, and Gates transmitters.  For repair of other parts from a Harris SX or Gates transmitter, you might contact Brian Henry in Napa, CA, at 707-226-5544.

We repair some radio broadcast equipment.  This includes some items manufactured by: Broadcast Electronics, CBS and CRL analog audio processors, along with Zercom We do a fair number of Harris MW-1 PA module repairs.  Not all broadcast equipment is repaired here.

Best to e-mail teki@mwpersons.com to determine if the item should be sent to us for service.  The work is charged at $85/hour plus parts and shipping.  There is a half-hour ($42.50) charge for examining a piece of equipment to determine if it is repairable.

When shipping, please include the instruction manual for the equipment in case it is not in our files.  Also send a letter indicating the known problems along with your name, company name, shipping address, telephone number, and e-mail address.  Wrap the equipment so packing peanuts cannot get into it.  If the unit has screw-terminal connections, be sure to tighten those screws so they do not fall out during shipping.  See a Radio World article on packing equipment.  Ship to:

M. W. Persons and Associates, Inc.
10032 Island Drive
Brainerd, MN  56401


When shipping, there is no need to require a signature upon package delivery.  In over 30 years of doing this, we have never had a problem.

The test bench setup includes, among other things, a 1 GHz spectrum analyzer, a 3 GHz spectrum analyzer with tracking generator, AM signal generator, FM signal generator, FM modulation monitor, audio test equipment, oscilloscopes, RF power meters, return loss bridge, and a 5000 watt AM/FM dummy load.

 If you are looking for an instruction manual for a piece of broadcast or Heath equipment, we may have it.
