Fair points Kevin but gas fitters and Technicians are skilled tradesmen(after a long apprenticeship). You can hardly put aerial fitters in the same class as these guys, even the most skilled have only attained an NVQ after a relatively short period.
Would you go to your local chippie and pay £25-£30 for cod and chips on the basis that most people would not even go on a trawler to catch the fish as its a bloody dangerous job.
It is all down to as you say the danger involved which to a degree can be mitigated by using proper equipment safely but this not an excuse to rip off Joe public, I think most people would be happy to pay up to say £100 to have a new aerial installed but as we all know it is not just aerial installers who take advantage, chuck in roofers and most other building trades. Incidently the current rate at most Main Car Dealers is £120 per hour. Happy Installing.
