Hello, my name is Tim, and welcome to the official Snake Radio Customs website. With 19 years of quality service, customer support, and very fast communication, along with 11 years on YouTube and thousands of radios later, I am still here. I am a one-man shop; nobody else will be handed anything to work on. My reputation is more important than money.


You can call me at the number above or click the "Contact Me" button above and fill out your request to buy a radio from me or get a radio worked on or resto-modded, etc. I will be happy to provide my recommendations for the radios I believe are the best in CB radio history. These opinions are based on seeing all the major brands come across my bench in my years of doing radio work. Once again, this is my opinion only.


My email is constantly bombarded with spam from haters and non-customers who try to waste my time. Therefore, it is much easier and faster to have a 5-minute phone conversation with you, and you will be glad you did. I won't keep you long, provide honest advice, and offer help after the sale with no high-pressure sales tactics.


I don't pressure anyone to get anything done they don't want to. I lay out clear options for every job, give my opinions, and explain why I do the work I do. Then you, and only you, decide how far you want to take the job. Questions do not scare me. If I cannot answer your questions, I will find the answer for you. I am only human and do not know everything; Google knows.


My hourly labor rate is $30.00 for quality detailed work using OEM parts and the best tools and solder on the market.

What I provide is the full purchase and setup of the new radios that I do. You do not have to do anything but contact me to get the radio done. There is no markup on the radio cost; I only get paid for my parts and labor.


If you are a veteran of any war or conflict, let me know at the time of contacting me, please. I always take care of the vets with a discounted rate for service on their radios. I hope this does not offend anyone, and if it does, then that is sad to me. They deserve our honor and respect for keeping us free to be who we are.

Only the best radios and quality work are done here - no B.S., no games. When you get a radio done with me, it is done right the first time, and I take my work and time very seriously. When you purchase a radio from me, I will tell you what antenna, what coax cable, and how to wire it, and set up the antenna for the best experience. I won't leave you hanging.


Every new radio sold by me to you, the customer, will have a full bumper-to-bumper warranty for 1 year from me! You will never be told to just send it to the manufacturer, and if it fails in the first year, I will build you a new one and send it to you at no charge. This applies to all new radios set up by me.


No B.S., no games, but you must contact me in the first 30 days if you are not happy or the radio has an issue, and you must follow my instructions on the SWR match on your antenna at the radio for the warranty to be in effect.


I always help out! Just call me or email me if you have SWR problems. You will get my email once the new radio is bought by me or once I get your radio in for restoration and mods if desired. If you send in a new radio, the warranty only applies to my labor or parts I have installed, not the radio itself.

So, that is it in a nutshell. I make it simple and easy for you to get a quality radio the first time, that will last you a long time. I go over them with a fine-tooth comb and do very clean work. My bench is kept clean, and I do not scratch up your radios. I build them like they are my own radio.


I am a one-man shop and a person who works 5 days a week that does not smoke or drink! I am a straight shooter who does not mince words or sugar coat anything about radios, what they are capable of, and what will suit you the best for your particular application needs. Thank you very much, and I hope to earn your business and keep it. I'm 62 years old and going strong.
