Default Kenwood TS430S Repair

I have a 430 and there is no power output. Receiver works fine. Don't
know if it is the finals or the power management circuit. I have used
the rig for several years and many hours of use. I was using Groton
Electronics for repair but they went out of business. Does anyone know
of a reliable place that will work on the Kenwood 430s.
Thanks

There is a TS-430 Yahoo group. Ask there. No power out can be caused by
many things, one of them is a bad connection easily fixed.

B&B Technical Services fixed mine.

Good service, did take some time, about 3 weeks, but the results were worth the
wait.
