I need a source for some help please.

My Alpha 374A  has a loose BNC connector on the back panel  (RF Input)  and
I need someone here in Houston who could repair or replace this connector.

Can anyone suggest someone who could repair this BNC?  Lord knows that this
50# machine needs to be carried out of the bedroom.  I do not know whether
this repair could be done or does it need to be moved to a bench and
disassembled.  I am not really sure how much I would have to pull the back
plane off the 374A ,  Honestly, I dread not only carrying this boat anchor
off the bed  and where to find the part, etc.

I know that Lon has done this in the past but I respect his decision to
retire from such work.  However, in his absence, he has left a great vacancy
in the local HV repair scene.

Again, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
