Also try Doug's Custom CB shop, Key CB shop, or possibly Fine Tune CB shop that rabbiporkchop has been endorsing. And I know there are a couple out west that are supposed to be good. Also could try one of the forum techs. Someone might have time to work on some radios. Maybe someone like Exit 13 or similar. Not sure he is taking radios currently, but he might be able to guide you in the right direction as well. There are other techs on the forum, just not sure who works on radios for others as in being a customer, not a friends radio or such. Time is most people's enemy here on the forum, I beleive that was the issue with Exit 13, no time! Working gets in the way of radio time LOL!! At any rate, hope you find someone that is good and doesn't have a closet full of bad bones, or a bad rep for overpricing or just doing plain out shi**y work. JMHO. Good luck and again hope you find someone. Check the CB list of known decent shops as well as the whitelist. Google does help some. Just type in best CB shops. Have a good day.
I learned how to fix my own radios im still learning i studied alot of schematics from the intrrnet,i made this my hobby.also equipment is expensive but worth it.
I find working on radios relaxing and challenges the mind. If I get overwhelmed then I take a break and research more on the internet.
That's one of those "pay your money and take your chances" things. I have radios that are at least a dozen years old and one that is 30+ years old and have never needed servicing except I needed to tweak the speech processor in the 30+ year old Kenwood as it was affecting the frequency response of my audio. One of the big reasons a lot of radios need servicing is due to the mods they have done too them. I think that is what fourstringburn may have been referring to with his comment. Leave a radio stock and it will likely last a lifetime.
