Congrats!!


You will find out it's not an easy job.

Home runs are a pain.
Line of sight is a pain.
Brick and stone are a pain.
Home runs under a floor Big pain.

Good Luck !!

Call all the local install companies and apply as a helper. Watch everything and learn and you are on your way.

Have fun doing the installs! I'd recommend you read around here to see what mistakes are made by other installers and avoid them.

Also might help to know a bit about the technology you are installing. The last 2 installers I have had experience with did not know much except how to do the install and call to activate.

Throw away your wristwatch. Installers do not have any need to know what time of day it is.

Not true at all. If they have no idea what time it is, than statistically they would have to be on time (by accident) a certain percentage of the time. To achieve their perfect off-time record, they have to have a very keen awareness of what time it is.

This is called apprenticeship, and has a long standing history. :)

so give us some good stories. :)

Like working 8 hours to complete a job you get paid 50 bucks for and having a customer yelling at you.

and are you aware of the tuner 2 problem on the hr20 with the 110 (which will be moot soon anyway)
