Default Need KVH Sat Antenna repair So Fla

My Sat antenna wont lock onto satellite. KVH 5 . Called tech who says it needs an electronic main board, but he cannot locate a replacement board and my only choice is to replace the antenna. And thats a pricey proposition.
Any recomendation on a repair shop where I can get a replacement board or repair existing one?

Many Thanks

What tech told you that? KVH or third party?
My experience these days with techs is mostly replace and cross your fingers that's right! I spent weeks replacing parts under warranty to find out it was just a loose connection.
Not locking on could be your LNB, just had to replace one on an HD7 after a lot of tech time with KVH and local guy.
Max might be a good place to find a second hand part.
