Larry , 

My Alpha 9500 , purchased  new in summer of 2013 works fine and has not been to 
the factory for service.

Also have a 87A ,  also purchased new in 1995 , that went to Alpha  factory 
service in November 2015. Received repaired unit (  receive pin diodes ) about 
1 month later. 

 No issues with service from Alpha . Done in a reasonable time period  and feel 
it was thoroughly checked before shipping back to me . BTW ... unit was 
returned double boxed which was NOT the way I had shipped it to them. Back in 
1995 these units were only single boxed . Glad Alpha double boxed . Am sure 
they learned a lot  about shipping over the years . 

I’ve been a very satisfied customer since my first  Alpha purchase ( 77DX ) in 
July 1983. I still have that big boy and have instructed my wife to put it in 
my casket 😉 when I go SK. 

No experience with K0HM.
