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.

How to install echo board in a Galaxy 2517


  • This radio already has an echo board installed in it from the factory. On the bottom set of knobs, left side, over three knobs. That knob is your echo/delay knob. No need to install one. Just turn it on.

  • Hope this helps.

Super Star 3900 GHP


Can't help you there. It's most likely that you screwed the modulator up by extending the frequency range. I used to work for Galaxy and I know what happens to a radio when amateurs try to modify them (no offense). If you modify a high power radio such as your Super Star, you're bound to have modulation and SWR problems. In expert advice, never do amateur radio modifications to a high power radio. If you want a more versatile radio, get a Galaxy DX 2517 CB base station. The DX 2517 has PA/FM/AM/SSB/USB/LSB/CW modes, and bands A-F, and a frequency range from 25.615 to 29.205 MHz. The Galaxy DX 2517 has modifications that can be done right at the factory, they are optional however. The only thing I find annoying with the DX 2517 is that it's bulky, it leaves no room for any competition. When it was designed, the engineers left space saving out of the question.
Anyway, Good luck
and
Best Regards,

Sounds like to me that one or more of the switches are dirty. Open the unit with the power disconnected and purchase a spray can of electrical contact cleaner. Spray all of the switches and volume controls on the inside. Rotate all of the controls several times, back and forth to work the contact cleaner into the controls. Repeat as necessary. Over time, these switches get dirty and they don't make a good connection. The cleaner will restore continuity to the switches.

Good Luck,
