Easier said, than done.

Back in my early years, I was doing an antenna install here and there, but soon tired of it.

I suppose if a person just happened to have all of the necessary tools and a vehicle for transporting a ladder, wasn't concerned w/ liability insurance, federal and state income taxes, sales tax, necessary permits etc, they may be able to make a go of it.

Everybody knows how, or knows somebody that can install their antenna, but for one reason or another, they call you.

They want the best reception possible, except for a few things.

They don't want the antenna outside, where neighbors, or their wife can see it, they don't want it to be seen from the street, they don't want two antennas, they don't want a rotor,they don't want a tower, they have trees that need to be trimmed back, they have rotting wood and mossy shingles. I'm sure there's more, but you get the point.

After all is said and done, they want you to do it for half price.

Sorry, but some people are just too difficult to squeeze a nickel out of, so I'll just continue as a hobbyist.
