[TechAssist] Re: Need Some input on becoming a RCA ASC.

Jerry..
Good advice..if it was RCA....Thomson Consumer Electronics went deeper.
Here we had Service Seminars back in the 80's, ASC's) on a No Charge Basis,
with a great Dinner. Then it went to Bring your own lunch, this is the
Equipment you need, we have it, and if you want to remain a ASC, buy
it...(today with a 10% discount).

Some of us tried to discuss recent chassis, and fixes. What we got...

That's old Technology!

We had two guys, Doug Steadman and Mel Hart, these guys were hung out to the
wind because they were too Technically minded, and actually cared about the
Techs.

Some guys from Ontario may remember these guys. Great team.

Mel was the Company...Doug was the Technician.
Just flashing back on those two guys, that's what this trade used to be.
"PRIDE".
