Question about Galaxy Radios DX-959 40-Channels Base CB Radio

1 Answer

The variabel key drops sometimes drops when radio is keyed up and sometime the RF power knob has to be turned farther to bring it back up on my Galaxy DX959.

The variabel key setting sometimes drops with out turning the RF power knob wether talking or not. Sometimes i have to turn the RF power knob farther to bring the key back to the same setting that it was. What could be causing this?

I'm not shure if you have tried but turn the mic gain down then check the d.k output. If you still lose power after a d.k it could be a final it's hard to say w/o seeing it. Also an external meter is more stable than the internal one. Check your coax, make shure all are tight. If you need more help e-mail me at

do you have any knobs or switches that say 10k or just switches on the side. It should also be on AM if the other person is on AM (this is not a 10m radio anymhz it only has AM, it is a legal CB Radio) Generally you should just be able to put it on AM and talk if your on the same channel. if its been modded and has switches a 10k switch or (high low norm) these may no be in the right place. if the clarifier is unlocked that may also cause a problem, it needs to be on with the switches and knobs in the right place.

good luck! play with the switches, with someone else who has a radio.

it can not be tuned to go high or low you need to add switches for that and then realign the radio.

Dirt or corrosion on the controls, the relay contacts, and even some switch contacts. Contact cleaner applied judiciously should remedy most of the potential causes.

Frequency counter displays two digets high from hump on fine clarifier adjestment on usb.27.186 insted of 27.185. also in am mode shows dead on with clarifer hump until mic is keyed thin dropes from 27.185...


Turn that fine clarifier a 1/4 turn or so to the right. I own a Galaxy DX99V and sometimes if that clarifier is just right it will drop down a hundredth of a MHz just like that when the mic is keyed. Your radio is just fine. Just adjust that clarifier a tad. The Galaxy DX99V is one of the best radios out there. I love them. -73-

I HAVE A 2517 GALAXY RADIO IT IS MUFFELD ON TRANSMIT


What is the power output on a watt meter telling you? if it is up above an 8 watt dead key with the rf power turned all the way down, someone has turned up the radio inside and you will ned to turn it back inside to get about a 2 or 3 watt dead key with the rf power turned all the way down on the outside knob on the face of the radio. to do this, you will need to locate the VR18 pot for low power on am/fm and the VR14 pot for high power on am/fm and adjust accordingly, you are most likely overdriving the radio in some way and if you are not familiar doing this sort of thing, then my suggestion would be for you to take it to your nearest electronics repair tech and have them do it for you. It is not a costly procedure and you will be better off to have an experienced tech in there. Also if you are running a power mic on it, try turning it down some or going back to the stock mic to see if the problem persists. If it does while running the stock mic, then most likely it's internal issues like the one explained above.
