    Kinda hard to get all of prerequisites rolled into a single place. Different folks have different skills or products to offer.

    The best CB shop is often your own workbench. Too many radios are shipped off with problems that could have been easily fixed at home, but were too timid to try. Learn to do the basics first such as wiring your own mic plugs. Think about making a commitment to further your knowledge along with some occasional test equipment purchases. No one is very successful early on in their endeavors. It takes time and a little effort. Keep stabbing at it with a positive approach and ask plenty of questions. Eventually the mere thought of sending your radio off to join the flying circus will make you cringe.

    skip searcher, there is no all-in-one cb shop. those that mainly restore old radios aren't going to want to work on modding your galaxy radio to make your xforce amp swing more.

    those that mostly do mods and peak and tunes to radios can't make any money doing actual repairs so they will turn down any repair that takes more than an hour and try to sell you a new radio.

    the question becomes, what do you want done, and to what radio?
    that will help determine which shop is right for you.
