I need help tuning my Galaxt DX 55v Radio.I Can Get out and people hear me clearly but i cant pull nobody in.I need help setting it up. Its in my pickup truck now.I had it in my pete.

Hello Heidi, if you are not receiving very good, make sure you have good clean grounds to start with. Also have you checked your SWR ? What kind of antenna and where is it mounted on your pickup? You may need to relocate the mounting position. Let me know what you have and we can make adjustments.

Hello ilatapy,
Welcome to FixYa.
My name is John, and I will be helping you with your issue.
Make sure that your antenna is grounded good to the body of the vehicle.
Check the connection in the back where the antenna plugs in.
Put your channel selector on channel 19 and make sure the Weather button
is not pressed in. Turn the RF GAIN to MAX, MIC GAIN to MAX .
If you still have issues, let me know! We are here to help you!
Comments and Testimony,s are always welcome here.

Hello, i was given a cobra 25ltd classic to look at.. put it on freek counter keys up around 24,25 mhz with the last few numbers flutering around it will not stay still. when modgulated into it goes down...

Does it seem to be talking on the right channel??

Check to see if D10, which is supposed to be an N1004 diode, and see if it's been replaced with a jumper.

If that's the case, then the final is volted. This mod gains some wattage but can make a radio dirty. Putting an N1004 back in may fix the issue.


Usually the radio will deadkey on the right freq.

The VCO could be off, and the radio may need to be aligned. Could the person you got the radio from have randomly turned VR's in the radio trying to mod it?

Without an ocilliscope you cannpt fully align the radio, but if you have a volt meter and a watt meter, you can do some of the alignment.

here is an alignment guide.

But if you can hear people on the correct channel, and they can hear you fine, it could be just a volted final.

Hello Shot

This is a weird one. Don't know exactly where to start but here is some ideas. Power filter to the power input, may be run power w/gnd from the battery, try a different antenna, run a ground wire to the radio and or antenna. other than this ya got me but maybe one of these ideas will work. Good luck and thanks for a good question and let us know what fixes it.

Cant hear anything

Hello, I would fist advise you to get the audio output specs and the service manual for this unit and look at the voltage level at the speaker, and the last audio stage of the CB. What I believe is that the audio amplifier or the audio detector of the CB has malfunctioned. I would suggest that you inject a signal at the proper level into the stage after the audio detector (first audio amp) and see is the sound can be heard properly at the speaker, then I would measure the audio at each stage leading to the first audio amplifier to determine where the audio is dropping out at. once found, check the DC voltages at that stage and determine which comploente is at fault, the culprit is most likely a bad filter capacitor. I hope this helps, Thank you, Shuttle83

My cobra 29ltd classic turns on but nothing else works. the meter dose not move when I key it up, and no one can hear me

Hello jeffssmit909,

This is an indication of the final RF power amplifier malfunctioning. First if you have a background in electronics you can get the schematic and measure the voltage levels with a multimeter to determine if the RF power amplifier stages or bad, in addition I would check the power supply section to.

By the way is the audio work, in other words can you hear other CB's when you turn your system on? Please reply, it will help in the diagnosis.

This is a good starting point. let me know how this turns out.

Thank you,

When I Press the mic to talk, others hear me key down, but no sound is transmitted

Hello lummox30,

Check you mic first to see if it is indeed working. Then if it is the below advice is applicable.
It sounds as if your TX audio amplifiers might be malfunctioning or the TCXO might be bad. If you have a background in Electronics I would suggest that you open up the unit and using a dummy load on the antenna check the two TX audio amps to see if when you key the mic and speak into it the amplifiers are amplifying your voice and sending it to the modulator. If the problem is not amps or the filters in between the amps, the modulator and the VCO buffer are suspect. If the TCXO is being modulated I would check the PPL IC and the Drive amp to see if the modulated signal is getting through. The last two checks I would perform are on the final amp and the TX switch prior to the antenna jack.

If you do not have a background in electronics, still check your mic, but the rest of the above advice can be done by a qualified Radio Technician.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,
