CB Radio Repair Shops – Are there any good ones left?

I think this is a dying breed that truckers are going to have to deal with in the future. Oh yea, you can find a “hack shop” out on the road at many truck stops. But, they basically do nothing but charge really high prices. I only know of one “good” CB Radio Repair Shop, and the owner knows what he is actually doing. I have dealt with this shop for many years, and they have never done me wrong.

They are located: South side of 80/90 (Ohio toll Road Exit-71) Get on RT. 420 and go south past the TA Truck Stop and Pilot Truck stops. Travel about one mile, and you will see Tire Shop sign, turn left onto RT. 163 and then turn right into the parking lot.

I stopped one time at a place on I-75 at exit 99. I will say this for them, they damn sure will jump on the job you want done. I had them to install my Connex 4600 Turbo for me, along with having them to install my Wilson 5000 antenna. They did a superb job, and was done in less than 1 hour. But, Damn they are expensive…It cost me $99.00 to have that done, the only thing extra I bought was a cheap $12.00 fiberglass antenna for the passanger side AM/FM. One thing else I did not agree with was. After they installed my Wilson 5000 antenna, they “tried” to set the swr’s of the antenna…Inside the metal building!

When it was done, I kindly thanked and made my way towards my original CB Shop to have the Swr’s fixed. Of course they were out, so he readjusted them, and have not had a minutes trouble out of it since.

Anybody know of any “good” shops left around list them as a comment and if enough get posted I will fix another page listing them..

    1. SERVICE@REPAIRCBS.COM is also another site I would look into. They do good work and they are very reasonable. They even have parts for the older radios that most other repair shops can no longer service becase they can not get the parts. Most of the time you can get your radio back within a week and if the radio repair costs more than the radio is worth they won’t soak you. They even have a nice supply of older and newer radios to choose from if you think your radio is not worth fixing.

  1. Dubs C.B. shop, South side of the interstate off of exit 154 on I70 in Illinois. The tech is Doug Mullens, that used to run the C.B. shop at Cloverdale In, exit 41 on I70 in Indiana. He has always done a good job with my radios and has been comparable to other shops in price.

    1. driving 20 years always used the doc in newburgh n.y now he’s at the new truck stop in davie fla. 595 fla. cb shop..he’s one of the best tech’s i ever delt with..they say he will answer all your qustions 100% on the money….dont know there new phone# but you can still get him at 845-567-1700…-

    2. I have done alot of business with Dubs shop and Doug has always done a very good job for me. I have never had to take my radio back to have any thing redone.

  2. Thanks for the comment and info Brian. I wished more would share information like this. This is probably pretty close to the number one question i hear and see all the time online or off. “Where is a good CB shop”?

    1. I am thinking of getting into the CB repair field, and have back ground in elecrtonics, military and Civilian. Could you e-mail me Paul?
      I commend you on being a instructor for truck drivers.
      Thanks Paul, God bless for what you are doing,

    1. I don’t know about Texas, but my brother has a great repair shop in Oklahoma… on I-35 in Moore just South of OKC… Main Street exit. Kelly’s CB Repair (405 794 8072). He does repairs and new installations. If you want someone who knows what they are doing, he is your guy!

    1. Service@repaircbs.com work on any and all CBs and they are reasonably priced. They are located in Wisconsin and tend to get radios in and out pretty quick. Check out there website at http://www.repaircbs.com. Best of all they have a supply of old radios that they use to get unavailable parts from so they can fix almost any radio at very reasonable prices.
