    a tall order maam. what are you attempting to accomplish? most of these
    boards, once determined to be defective, are scrapped.
     

  3. If you don't know what equipment you will need, it is very unlikely
    that you have the skills required to do the work. :(
     

  4. Why would you need years of learning, soldering skills, tons of test
    equipment, filing cabinets of schematics, and the ability to see
    problems before they happen? Just ask us!

  5. Ok, John, tell me everything you know about the Microdyne RCB2000
    telemetry receiver. I worked on it at the factory, and had direct
    access to the designers, yet I still needed over $1,000,000 worth of
    test equipment and half a file cabinet full of schematics and other data
    to make them work. Its no wonder that it cost $80,000 per radio.
     
  6. WAS that the typical repair bill (ducking for cover!)

    Exactly my point though about the fellow asking how to fix stuff easily!

  7. The radios each cost $80,000 new. I worked at the factory where they
    were built. All of them were still under warranty so there were no
    repair bills or charges for software upgrades. In fact, the first batch
    that were shipped did get a field upgrade. We sent two people from
    engineering to the customer's site rather than have them ship over a
    half million dollars worth of equipment back to us. The upgrade was
    required because they had specified the wrong bandwidths for the IF and
    video DSP filters. The amount of equipment required to work on a
    RCB-2000 was due to the complexity of the design.
