Dean, what part of the installation do you feel you can't do? Just curious.

If you need a lot of help, e-mail me, and I'll do my best.

There really aren't many professional installers around that I would trust.  Most hams do their own installations.  The main thing to remember is to stay away from stereo places.

You might check with a local ham club, or Ham Radio Outlet (http://www.hamradio.com).  HRO has stores in Burbank and Anaheim, and it might be worth a conversation with them.

I know the feeling--I am not too excited about drilling holes in my Jeep!  I wouldn't hesitate about drilling I the roof, but I don't how to fix the headliner and want the rig to look good when I am done...

I tend to disagree. The high power audio guys do far more complicated installations than the average ham rig and often deal with much higher current requirements.

Antennas are another matter; use a commercial two-way shop if you aren't comfortable doing it yourself.

FWIW, I've probable done 75 antenna installations over the years and haven't ripped a headline yet. (knock, knock, Smiley)
