I was just a kid when my father first introduced me to the CB. I was ten when a family friend gave me a radio that didn’t work. I fixed it, and then another family friend gave me another broken radio and I fixed that one too. I’ve been using and fixing radios ever since.
For more than 30 years I’ve had a passion for this technology. I build, repair and sell radios and the antennas to go with them. The photo on the home page here is of the antenna I built and use at my home base. Until recently all of my work was done in the cozy comfort of my home basement (the wife said it was too much to do in the den).
In addition to being self taught, I’ve trained under some of the best local talent in my area including my mentor Bob Stevens of B&B Electronics out of Rockford Illinois. Hanging out with Bob every day learning things that only the old timers know – I miss those days. I hope that in some small way I can share with you the way he did with me.
