They are the hottest item to hit the market in recent years. Not all CB radios, however, are going into motor vehicles. Many are being installed and operated in residences and that's where a serious problem has developed. The careless installation of CB radio antennas is causing crippling shocks, painful burns, and even death. Home installation of CB radios requires antennas, usually in and children of Maple Valley were Sunday guests at the 3ohn Henry home where they helped Becky Sanger cele- brate her birthday ....

It's easiest for installers to "walk" their antenna/masts into an upright position, supporting them above by guy wires or the cave of a house. Unfortunately, the antenna/masts are so long that unwary installers walk them into contact with power lines or install them to close to power lines, thus exposing the installer to possible electrocution, causing power outages and/or property damages. Antenna manufacturers provide general directions calling for ;nstallation to be made in clear areas, away from wires, other antennas, etc., however, few if any enclose specific warnings to avoid power lines or give a description of the potential hazards. The Snohomish County PUD suggests that CB operators erect CB towers out of falling distance of power lines, because primary power lines are not insulated and contact with those lines could be fatal. Another common oversight in the construction of CB towers is an absence of proper grounding. If there is any doubt about the safety of making an installation, hire a professional to do the job. If existing antennas need to be moved and there's the danger of touch- ing power lines, call the PUD for advice beforehand. Don't take chances. Look up and look out before putting up CB towers and antennas. Let's meet at the Adult Dining Monday Evening p,m, Lunches Daily from 11 a.m. Fine Selection of Wines 116 E.
