Has c option frequency display board. No readout on the frequency other then the decimal point, channel readout is fine. Transmits and receives fine.

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.

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.

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

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.
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.
