Question about Galaxy Radios DX-2517 CB Radio

3 Answers

Galaxy Saturn turbo does not come on.

Seems the radio was struck by lightening.. from inspecting the antenna that was disintegrated was my first clue. I am looking for a good technical repair manual like Photo Fact or something like that.. I own the owners manual but looking for more information. on tracking down what parts are blown.

I can only share your grief. I had a nice Galaxy DX11B hit by lightning. Blew a Ham IV rotor completely off its tower shelf and the control box fried. Fried the Gamma Matchers on a Moonraker 4. Destroyed a Heathkit SB220 amp. Melted 2 runs of Belden RG-213 120 ft pieces of coax. As far as the radio, it runined the chassis too far to fix it. Too many parts were cooked including the transformer. Ever seen a 35 yr old man cry?! Good luck anyhow.
PS Thank God for home owners insurance. Thanks Farmers!!!
