    Y'all removed TR32, aren't y'all?

    Probably running one of those leenyers, too...

    Awww, Andy!

    Nip it in the bud.



    You're either running 100w+ power, or the RF interference when you key down is confusing the vehicle's computer, y'all.

You don't say how much power you  are running, but it must be quite a bit, or you have an amp you're not telling us about.  By keying up the radio, you're putting enough load on your electrical system to pull the voltage down which causes you lights to dim, rpms to drop, etc.  When you key off, everything goes back to "normal" which means no load so the engine will surge momentarily before it recovers.  Depending on how many watts you are running, you may also be affecting the alternator regulator.  Your alternator may also be a little weak.

  • The Galaxy 44 has 1 final and 1 voltage regulator not "finals." I doubt it is putting nothing out although it may look like it on a watt meter. Check VR16 (low power adjustment for the amp) and VR 13 (High power adjustment) for the amp in the radio. That radio has a variable power so make sure the pots were not turned out of whack. Check VR 14 as well. this is your AMC modulation pot adjustment.

  • Test the driver as well as the pre-driver. Check your microphone to make sure the wiring is good and the PTT is functioning.

I purchased an old Realistic TRC-431 CB. When I turned it on it worked fine, the mic was keyed then the lights went dim and stayed dim. Now the lights remain dim. I checked the two output transistors...


The problem is with your power supply. There should be a big round transister on the power supply this is the power transister. It will be mounted to the power supply case. Replace this transister and try to operaste your radio again. Make sure that the power supply you use is at leat 7 amps or the radio will not operate properly and you will possibly blow the transister again.

2547 channel led is dim


This is a common problem with a lot of Galaxy, Cobra and similar radios. It usually occurs from one of two things the radio has been operated on a higher voltage than it was designed for ( Called Volting) and has damaged the LEDS or it can occur from poor connections to the display board either the 8 Volt line or the Grounds check for the proper voltage at the display. Note if you ground your meter somewhere besides the display ground you may get a correct voltage reading but still not have the correct voltage reaching the display so be sure to ground your meter at the display and read the voltage there as well.

Galaxy dx 2547


Hi Joey,
It sounds to me that the power supply you are using may be a little under powered. It's not really a bad problem as long as the voltage doesn't drop below about 10.5 - 11 volts. As for the Galaxy. I'm not real certain of the question but a Galaxy will usally use more current to make it work properly, so I would suggest a bigger ( more amps ) power supply.
Good Luck and I hope this has helped some
