I have an Argonaut VI that after 2 years old I lost receive on 160 & 80 meters. This was in June 2015 with the second owner of Ten Tec. Shipped it to them & a week later got a call from the service department. He said need to replace the pre-selector board. The cost with shipping & tax was $348. I asked you don't do component repair? He said nope, takes too long. We just replace boards.

Elecraft is the only company that I know of that still does component repair if it doesn't involve replacing too many components or a large pin chip.

Icom's 7300 has really help lower the cost of used transceivers.  Good for those that are looking to buy, but bad for those trying to sell.
