I'm happy to report that Glen repaired my "non-reparable", obsolete 87A. He bent over backwards to find the unavailable parts and was successful. I have never had this level of service from any other ham manufacturer. That is why I have owned Alphas from the 70V through 77, 77D, 77Dx and 87A. Someday I hope to own a 9500.

Yes, the 87A is obsolete. Sometimes we get one in which is not repairable. If the owner junks it we try to pull any parts out that might help someone else. There is just no way around this. Other companies selling you amps haven't even been around thirty years. Yes, it IS time to upgrade to a 9500. We will keep supporting your 87A the best we can but sometimes we just can't fix them or it would cost more than purchasing a new amp. Let's be realistic. If you've been driving that car for thirty years, it isn't REASONABLE to expect it to have any resale value. You've had it, you've enjoyed it, you've gotten your money's worth out of it. What is there to complain about? And, considering how good it has been to you, why would you not buy another one from us that is current production that we can support?

I hope this is not considered a "rant". I have replied to some questions asked in the threads. I have double spaced this and it looks fine from yahoo. I may need to rejoin amps from my personal email if this comes up looking screwy again. I noticed the previous post all periods were replaced by question marks and it was all run together.
