Gary Streeter, FCC-Licensed Technician
Gary built his first crystal radio at age 7. Seven years later, he sought a repairman for his first ham radio in 1974. Instead of merely repairing Gary's radio, Mr. Webb taught Gary to make the repairs on it and other vintage radios. Gary also completed correspondence courses teaching radio frequency (RF) circuitry while completing his high school homework. Gary later worked repairing televisions and radios for a local repair shop and then repairing guitar amplifiers for a local music studio until joining the South Carolina National Guard where he repaired field radios. He has taken many courses and exams, including those offered by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) which issued Gary's license as a radio repair technician and also his General Radio Telephone Operator License (GROL).
Gary is a member of the Quarter Century Wireless Association, an exclusive organization for people who have been amateur radio (ham) operators for 25 years or more. Gary is proud to also be a member of the Radio Club of America, the oldest, most prestigious group of wireless communications professionals in the world. Its members are dedicated to the wireless art and science for the betterment of society and must be elected and vetted to be granted membership.
Gary has the training and experience you're looking for. Trust him to take care of all your antique electronics!
