He also offers upgrade kits that are very easy to install. I recently upgraded an old E-Motion controller that was almost 20 years old to a HD-30, 30 band controller. The upgrade kit was $62, came with complete instructions and took less than an hour to install. I'm very happy with it, but if you have any doubts about doing it yourself, don't hesitate to take Jay's advice and contact Jim. He's a super nice guy and is always glad to help.

Jim has upgraded two of my controllers, one twice now, as well as replacing blown transistors that were the result of hooking up wrong.  Does the work quickly, and is very fair on the price.  You can't go wrong sending them to him
