Default Xmitter Repair

My old second hand and only Jr xmitter just died. Did continuity checks, battery checks, etc., but no dice. I guess I need the names of some reliable xmitter repair folks. Anybody out there got some info?
Thanks.

Send it to Horizon Hobby JR repair. No one is better or significantly cheaper (except me, but I am retired from fixing radios, so don't ask) fixing JR radios. They want a letter describing circumstances and a daytime phone number. I think the labor is under $40 an hour.

Danny has a link to the proper address.

JR service center
4105 Fieldstone Road

Thanks MO_Radio_Tech. I'll do as you suggest. Any suggestions on buying a new middle of the road xmitter? Is any particular channel on 72 mhz any better or worse than another or is it a matter of what's the most available (least used) in my particular area. Is there any reason to choose the lower frequency (26 mhz?) over 72?
