I had a lights out total failure of my Bendix/King KLX135A a few months back during a day trip and returned NORDO back into LVK. LAC at SJC did the repair on it (failed electrolytic capacitors in the power section) for several hundred $$. The repaired unit operated fine until about halfway thru a recent flight, when just the receiver section failed, and again back to LVK. LAC honored the previous repair bill and fixed it again (this time leaky electrolytic caps on another CCA deeper within the unit).

The tech told me there are more electrolytic caps throughout the unit that could fail in the future. I work with defense electronics so am comfortable with attempting repairs of this type in the future. I don't want this transceiver to nickel and dime me to death and would like to get my own copy of the KLX135A service or technical manual to assist in that endeavor if a .pdf copy exists anywhere.

I talked to Shane at B/K customer service and he indicated that, since it is a discontinued unit, it would not be unlawful for a dealer or service center to give me a copy. I will be checking with LAC to see if they are willing to do this, but I also wanted to ask you all.

I would be most appreciative.

-Thx

Matt,
Did you send a copy to Bob N? I send him all the manuals I get for his library.
