Are you sick and tired of buying JUNK antenna mounts found all over generic cb radio sales websites, mass produced trash? Well we are sick of selling them as well. Big truck mounts that are often cheaper are fine, while the 3/8 x 24" studs can be bad. Many pickup trucks, cars, jeeps, SUVs, motorhomes using tall, heavy antennas, or mounted in unusual locations require quality mounts. We are now offering hand built, hand machined mounts or nearly any application from mild to wild called "RADIO EXPERTS LIFETIME MOUNTS (TM)".
RADIO EXPERTS (TM)- Ball Mounts aka, "BALLS TO THE WALL MOUNTS", notice that they don't sell any good ones anymore? They are pot metal, hollow, and slip as you drive. We sell SOLID METAL mounts, stainless hardware machined and made 100% here in the USA. Not junk, not cheap, last a lifetime. If you need to tow your jeep out of mud and dont have a trailer hitch have no fear wrap it around one of these mounts!!! (our lawyers tell us to make sure its posted we are not suggesting actually doing that even though we feel you could!)
RADIO EXPERTS (TM)Studs (no not the lot lizard type stud!), Lots of antenna studs have poor rf connections slip, strip, and break. These studs are built to last. MACHINED by hand, made for massive RF they work perfect!Some custom antenna companies used to offer these but no more, RadioActiveRadio.com got fed up with that!!!!
RADIO EXPERTS QUICK ANTENNA DISCONNECTS, Have a high end antenna and want to be able to take it off in a hurry? Have you bought the ones offered in our industry and they simply don't work. The springs are bad, horrible to take on/off, or just break, NOT ANY MORE. Cheap, again no, made in the USA, quality, hand machined = buy it once and your done. If your parking in the garage, or parking in someone elses garage and need to take it off in a hurry you need one of these!
Let us know what your needing and chances are we can custom make it for you....... only at RADIOACTIVERADIO.com 520-374-2626

APRIL 2013.... HAVE YOU PURCHASED A RCI 2995DX VERY RECENTLY, or ARE PLANNING ON BUYING ONE!??? READ THIS......
All current RCI 2995DXs have had a serious defect. IF you bought a radio and the receive on certain channels just has had a massive amount of unusual noise your not alone. There are several circuits that have been interferring with eachother causing the units to have serious RX issues. We have had SEVERAL reports that dealers are not taking care of this issue for their customers and are allowing the radios to leave out the door still defective. The FIX is NOT EASY! It took us many, many hours and parts, and labor to figure out how to correctly fix this serious defect. Thank you to (4) of our customers who allowed us the time to correct it before we shipped their units. If you bought yours from a dealer, who is scamming you out of a fix and your radio has this issue, switch dealers and call 520-374-2626 radioactiveradio.com
GALAXY 98VHP, RCI 2970N2, are you fed up with your amp deck blowing up?! Fed up with replacing out put transistors over and over. Squealing, horrible audio, and endless issues with your "new" radio. We don't blame you! If you bought your unit from a non technical shop and they are giving you the run around, we will fix it right the FIRST time. Fill out a RA form today, and send her in! Its horrible how shops will sell radios with known defects leaving their customers out in the cold.
Recently one of the things we have noticed is the fact that there are more customers then we imagined that want very small compact units, done correctly, but priced fairly. We have gotten a lot of feed back that people get sick of buying the radios on the internet/roadside shops that run about $100.00+/- at shops that their "tune/ups" turn their radios into trash not worth the cardboard box they came in. We have been starting to build people that want to buy a quality radio, with QUALITY technical service making their radio sound great, talk far but still again keep their prices at less then $100.00, sometimes even as low as $50.00!!!!
We have added the following compact models to our product line. We maybe adding these units to our website, but are still deciding if they should become a part of the radioactiveradio.com line up. If you would like to see them, or have any product suggestions let us know. We recognize that if it wasnt for our customers, no matter how good a product we build wouldnt matter at all without you!
Uniden Pro 505-Uniden Pro 510-Midland 1001Z, Midland 1001LWX (has weather built in!) all priced well within $49-$99 with our famous "SUPER Power Pack" done to each chassis.
LOOKING FOR A ENTIRE SETUP SHIPPED TO YOUR DOOR READY TO GO, NOTHING ELSE TO DO BUT TURN IT ON AND ENJOY FOR CHEAP????
Now you can get a brand new plug in and play full radio setup, radio, super power pack serviced, with a new magnet mount antenna or mirror mount antenna with coax/mount, soldered on cig lighter plug, (packages starting at less then $119.99 for mobile setup) 100% ready to plug in and play. Easy 10 min installs, all service warrantied for life! (12v base station setups available for just a little more!!!)
Every wonder how a radio shop could sell you a "tuned up" radio, yet when something goes wrong with it they have you send it out to someone else for service?????
Thank you to our friends at Connex once again for leading the industry and supporting their top tier "authorized" dealers!!!!!! Because of their concern for dealers, authorized dealers are able to give the consumer much more then other brand names in giving the end user the world class support they deserve!
One thing that we run into on a day to day basis is people that get in radios that they describe as having clean, clear, but low audio. Most redesigned radios that we produce benefit greatly from either a Astatic 636L or a RK56. We can debate which mike is better at some other time, but for this write up, our radios 99% of the time in most big trucks should be using one or the other. However many people dont get the full benefit from their SWP II radios when they use one of these mikes. Why? Experienced users have known for years that on the screen on the mike youll notice a plastic piece. The correct name for it is called a lip guard. The correct way of using these mics is resting your lip on the lip guard as you talk. The lip guard is your mics way of showing you that after that point the mic will have a harder time hearing you, resulting in low audio. If your radio gets "your audio is clear but your not loud enough" then try this suggestion. Most notice a nice difference in audio quality.
Another thing that we have been hearing lately is how negitive our competition has been "slamming us" and "each other" Well lets face it, we are all working harder then ever before and getting paid equal to less then we ever did before. Bills have gone up for all of us, and money is tight for the working man/woman. When stuff "hits the fan" theres two ways to react, step up to the plate, bust your butt, build a awesome product thats better then everyone elses or start slinging mud at the people that intimidate you. We hear at radioactiveradios.com step up to the plate.
Being in this business as head deep as we have been for as long as we have we expect to get our fair share of the competitions slams. Heck companies that do little to no radio work get zero attention since their sales are so limited nobody wastes a moment of time breathing their name in a slam. Who are you going to go after when you feel imtimidated? The biggest and best. Why would you bother slamming a shop nobody ever hears about? Over the years the competition has slammed us about some of our earlier work. Well lets face a few facts....
First, few shops over the last 20 years have innovated nearly a fraction of the exclusive designs that we have. Sure some of our designs have needed improvement over the years. But its much easier to pick out flaws then it is to come invent something yourself. What people dont say is how AWESOME 98.5% of every design we have came out with the entire time we have been around has been. When we come up with a design, year after year after year after year we still keep improving them. The personality of the owner of this company is this.... If work becomes a routine and things dont keep moving forward we rather just go out of business. What keeps us motivated if constant forward progress.
Most slams are fabricated. Lets face it, we have had a web presents since late 1994 when we put up the first GF CB and Electronics site. From 1994 to today we have seen more "web based" sites come and go then you can shake a stick at. Do people not think we own a digitial camera and can take pics of incoming radios that our competition had done and exploit it with false facts?? I can take a pic of "XYZ" shops radio here on our bench then fake 20 pics that you the person thats looking would have no clue if they were real or not. Why wouldnt we bother wasting such time?? Well at the end of the day we are professionals thats why. If your in a business that does repairs, when our competition screws up a radio and we fix it, we make money getting it right for the customer. Ummmm, we are in the radio repair business. Competitions bad work makes us money. Why would we need to do anything else then spend time fixing things? We arent in the business of slamming shops. Hate to say it most shops slam themselves with their own poor work. Why would we have to say negitive statements about them, they do it to themselves.
As a policy you will NEVER read or hear a single negitive statement about any specific shop ever. We feel our high quality work speaks volumes and taking the high road is the only road we will travel. If you think we should "fight back" we do daily. How? We simply build awesome stuff and have for a long long time. Recently we have made MASSIVE investments in improving our technical benches. Even in a bad economy we have busted butt to add new high end late model VERY expensive equipement to our bench. Why? Again we are in this to win this. Build a better product then everyone else and stay on top. No need to make false statements, no need to fudge pics. If your a busy bench tech you have no time for smack talking.
We wont try to win you over with cheap products, or wal mart style prices. We will build you the best product, keep putting on our work boots and step up to the plate busting butt for our customers. If our competitors liked us I hate to say it there would be something wrong. When they hate us, we know why! So keep up with your "nana nana naaana" type playground stuff, while we keep focused on design work!
Well Blogging is kinda fun, so keep tuned in I guess there will be more to come!
