Depends where you are but I bought mine from Major Communications at Narellan.
I physically installed both the remote head and the base unit but got them to wire it up.

If the price from SCR Parramatta includes GST, the antenna and fitting then go for it.
I got mine with a 6-9 gain antenna this time last year from atrc.com.au at Girraween for $509 (GST incl) and fitted it my self. It was the cheapest place I could find in Sydney at the time.
Have a go at fitting it yourself, plan where you want to put the haed and remote and go for it. Its not hard.

Bloody hell I new ARB were a rip off but that's rediculous!
Should cost no more than $50 to install a UHF into a 4by. Shop around, buy one and put it in yourself, it looks a lot harder than it actually is. If you really have no clue, Find a mate that's got half a clue and tell him the cartons in the fridge! LOL

Seriously though, most antennas come with the coax already hooked up and SWR all done, you just have to plug and play. Just run 1 lead to the positive on the battery (buy a fuse from dick smith or supercrap), attach the earth to any handy bolt under the dash and attach the radio with the mounts, or just silicone it somewhere so you can take it out without damaging the car when you want to sell it.
30 minutes for somone who knows what there doing.

It's allways a good idea to run the negative straight to the battery. This eliminates any potential noise. Most people think its an over kill, maybe it is.

Personally I belive for a 5 watt radio it is an overkill, if you get noise on a UHF you have something seriously wrong with your altinator. Also then you need to doule fuse, because any earth going direct to the bat should also be fused.
More to go wrong IMHO.

David has it in one. These guys are the cheapest in oz by streets.
There is a bundle package on this link http://www.prestigecom.net.au/default.asp?category=UHF+CB+Radios&subcat=Value+Bundle+Packs&openmenu=2

Easy to install save yourself some money. And for 450ish you are $250 better than the ARB price.

Just when you don't want another suggestion. Try Phoenix Communications in Sylvania. In the shops at the top of the hill on the left as you go south. Two story brick place with parking underneath. Got my TX 3200 there a couple of years back it's not a falxh looking shop but they know their gear
