Hey Michael:

Can you give us Kiwa's phone number? Their web site has apparently lapsed, since it redirects elsewhere. Also, what did Craig charge for the mods? I have heard that he does great work.

I have replied to an e-mail he sent me regarding my G-8 requesting his number for you.
I dont have his e-mail address so I can only reply to one he sent me.
Mine was the first G-8 he worked on so he did not charge me anything. Just postage.
He told me the upgrade he did for me was similar to the one he does for the G-5. Thats about $65.00 for the G-5.
Kiwa has a policy that says they will do a free upgrade for any radio they dont already have an upgrade for.
Mine was the guinea pig.

I didnt write his number down.
I just called it off the website.
I guess my stupid pill is working.

Michael Brent

Craig sent me back his number and his mirror web site.
Its www.kiwa.us
phone is 507-634-6134

Thanks, Michael. The upgrade is more than the radio, but if the audio perks way up, it may be worth it.

The G8 has such good DX capabilities that I think the upgrade may be worth it. If I hadn't already ordered the Kchibo D96L, I'd send in my G8 for the upgrade.

I remember a few years ago when many people were sending in their S350/BCL2000 radios to Kiwa for filter and audio upgrades. While the G8 will never have the big sound of the S350, it marks a big advancement in selectivity.

I was wrong. The upgrade for the G-5 is $50.00.
I dont know what the G-8 upgrade will cost. As I said, he did mine for free in order to find out what would be the right upgrade for this radio.
It really sounds great now and I would be pleased even if I had paid $50.00.
