SOURCE: Galaxy DX 959

1. Remove bottom cover from radio. 2. On the main PCB, locate J33. (See diagram above) 3. Locate wires on pins marked "P5" (yellow) & "P6" (grey). 4. Cut wire on "P5" (yellow) and install a SPST switch in line. 5. Cut wire on "P6" (grey) and install a SPST switch in line. NOTE: By using two of the function switches available on the radio will eliminate the need for two new switches to be installed and mounted.

SOURCE: how can i boost my galaxy dx 959

You will have to take this radio to a tune and peak shop for this upgrade. most audio store tech can do this upgrade or, just locate a truck stop near your location and im sure there is a radio guy on the premises that will assist in this upgrade as well. great radio by the way:)

SOURCE: I do not have enough audio on my dx 959 galaxy 40 channel radio

You can turn the modulation up by turning VR16 to the left.

This should give you some big audio.

SOURCE: refurbished dx 959 from galaxy no modulation? no transmitt?

If there is no transmit at all, it sounds like it wasn't fully refurbished. If it is just low modulation then just turn VR16 and VR14 all the way to the left.

If its not working at all, send it back. It hasn't been refurbished.

SOURCE: i have a galaxy dx 959 it keys up has no soundor receive

Try a different mic, they CAN cause no sound (receive), and no talking. If that isn't the issue, I'd go to my coax cable, even though they don't look broken doesn't mean that they aren't. I've seen quite a few brand new ones that are bad right out of the box. If all of that checks out I'd grab an SWR/power meter and do a check to see if the radio was registering on the inline meter. I'd say use the one on the radio, but I'd like to see it on the inline so you can really tell whats going on with the radio. I think I'd also get a spare radio, or a friends, and put it in my vehicle and see if it gets out. That would be the best way to check your coax and antenna setup. Aside from that, which is just simple cb logic, I'd say you may possibly have to bring the radio to a tech and have them check it out. I have a DX-959 and a DX-99V and I gotta say, knock on wood, no issues with either one. I really hoped that helped and let me know how things turn out. Its always good to hear from people after they figure out what was wrong, that way we all learn...

My radio squeals with echo when my amps on

adjust your talkback to just open then set your echo to where you want it. Now turn your amp on and re-adjust both the talkback and the echo . If you have a speaker nearby the radio may be feeding back through it so move it away from your radio . Now start talking with the mic and adjust your echo because you should be able to hear yourself talk through your talkback.

Galaxy DX 98VHP meter stopped moving . There is no swr reading, nothing. Even with a seperatye meter atached or a dummy load, the meter on the galxy is not working. Did I lose all power?

You appear to be aware of you antenna system with the separate meter attached so the tells me you dont punish a radio with an high swr. I am just guessing red wire/solder in mic cord at plug given that it is a side mic mic jack.
