On the face plate is a button for the counter ,try pushing it several times to see if the dot moves. As long as the channel display is reading the correct channel you should be ok but you want to correct this problem . If you can't correct it contact Galaxy and they will have a tech talk to you.

Hello radiogeek,

it sounds like you have a bad voltage regulator since you are indicating that the voltage adjusted by L17 is random. Check all of your voltages from the power supply (regulator side), and make sure they are stable. You will find that you may have a bad voltage regulation circuit or a bad capacitor in the unit power supply.

Thank you,
Shuttle83

SOURCE: used galaxy 88hl

If you have a receipt for it and you had it less than 2 years it can go to Galaxy in Calif. if is defective. Just go the the Galaxy tech support webpage and follow the directions for an RA #. They do good work. If you want to send it to a top notch repair shop try Dons CB in PA. They are a real Galaxy warranty service center. The # is 814-898-1046

SOURCE: it transmits off frequency is there a adjustment and also the frequency counter goes crazy at times

To add 10Khz to your transmit frequency:

FIXED/OFF/+10KHz SWITCH:
The left position puts the radio on
one of the three fixed channels that is selected by the channel switch
(6,19, or 21). This over-rides the channel selected by the 40 channel
knob. The right position adds 10KHz to whatever frequency you are ON.
In the middle, both features are OFF.

Otherwise, a radio tech would be able to retune the frequency inside the radio.

After adding 10KHz to your frequency, use the SWR control to check the SWR of your antenna.
Here's how:
SWR CAL CONTROL: Normally this switch is set to “PO”. Then,
during transmission, the meter indicates output power. To read SWR,
rotate this knob during transmission until the needle moves to the “SET”
point on the SWR scale. Then, while still transmitting, set the R.B./SWR
switch to SWR.

Ideal SWR is 1 but you'll want to be as near one as possible. An SWR of 1.6 or greater will make ineffective use of your antenna.
If in doubt, a radio tech has the required meters and tools to adjust the SWR/Tuning of your antenna.

On my radio I need the settings for the knobs because other people can hear me but I only get static and cannot hear them. Thanks


Band should be E Band high/low button on high 10 khz off AM selected
To check that you have done this correctly frequency counter will read 27.185 plus or minus 5 khz. This is of course proved you have a radio that is converted for 11 meter cb frequencies.

Haven't used my dx-88hl cb for years. what d9 i set the band on?


I'm not going to be corrected on this as i'm tempted to say A or C and sometime D. Instead i would say switch channel to 19 then watch frequency counter as you change band selector until you find 27.185 and you have arrived.

Cant get know help to program my scanner


Programming the BC60XLT is simple and straightforward:

- Select the frequency to program.
- Select the channel that you wish to program it into. You can press MAN and the channel number, followed by MAN, or just repeatedly press MAN until the desired channel is displayed.
- Enter the frequency, including decimal point (for example, 156.065). The decimal will display as a dash.
- Press E. The frequency is now programmed into the scanner memory, and you can repeat the process to program any channel.

For more information on your scanner, you can download/print the operating manual here:

What steps do i take too program frequences. what are the frequences for charlotte north carolina?


with the scanner on, push the "man" (manual) button. If the scanner was scanning it should stop on one channel . Push the up or down arrow key until you get to the channel you want to program. You can also use the keyboard for direct access to a particular channel i.e. push "1" "4" "9" and "man" to jump to channel 149.

Once on the channel you want to program, push "prog" (program) then the frequency you want in that channel, including the decimal point. Push "ent"(enter). Your desired frequency should be displayed. Don't forget the "." (decimal point) or the scanner will tell you "error". Move to your next hannel to be programmed and repeat. If you put in a frequency outside of the radio's capability, you wil get an error message.

To find frequencies, look on the internet. The best site I have found is
http://www.radioreference.com/ .
