CB Radio Installations: Backyard CB Installers

There is a lot of 'backyard bargain' CB installers out there offering cheap CB radio installations for a fraction of the price a typical professional installation carried out by a qualified auto sparky would be.

In this episode, we'll look at the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to getting your UHF CB installed in your vehicle. We'll discuss the pro's and con's of using these unqualified 'backyard' installers, talk about CB installs done by automotive electricians; plus we'll be exploring all the common questions people tend ask when they buy a radio and want to install it.


Qualified Automotive Electricians vs 'Specialists'

There are a growing number of aussie businesses now selling automotive electrical products such as warning lights, lightbars and flashing beacons to Australians all over the country. The biggest common denominator with these new businesses is that their 'high quality' installations are NOT being carried out by Qualified Automotive Electricians, instead they are being performed by in-house 'specialists' or low bidder vendors who are no more qualified then an employee or contractor with a pair of side cutters and electrical tape.

In this episode, we'll look at why so many of these new businesses have poped up, how to pick the good from the bad, and things to look out for if are thinking about using an installer who is not a qualified automotive electrician.
