Is this new mic wired for your radio? just because it fits the socket doesnt mean its right. Did the old mic do the same thing reason why you got the new one? just sounds more like a loose wire at the jack where the mic plugs in? has that connector ever been loose or needed tightened at any time?

SOURCE: I do not have enough audio on my dx 959 galaxy 40 channel radio

You can turn the modulation up by turning VR16 to the left.

This should give you some big audio.

SOURCE: have new dx959 doesnt get out very far talking

The DX959 has an output power setting knob. It's located next to the channel selector and is labeled RF Power. Turned counterclockwise will reduce output power. Turned clockwise will increase output power. Your switch is probably turned all the way counterclockwise resulting in low transmit volume.
Also, make sure the wiring for the RK59 is correct for the Galaxy. Even though it's a 4 pin plug, the pinouts may be different for the Uniden and Galaxy radios. Do a Google search for mic pinouts for your two radios to check.

SOURCE: full power with zero modulation

you possibly have a faulty microphone, if the amp is keyed to transmit and there is not audio to modulate. Try another mic

Assuming you don't have the manual,basic controls for receive are to make sure the switch next to the meter is set to s/rf,switch for cb/pa is set cb,knob for rf gain is at max, squelch knob is fully counterclockwise..squelch can be adjusted if ya don't want to hear static but will start cutting out weaker signals.If none of the above works,try plugging in an external speaker to the jack on the back of the radio,if ya still don't hear anything,check that antenna coax is screwed in tightly in back of the radio.Next step after all that would be the microphone,is the stock mic,power mic..if it is the original stock mic that has not been rewired in any,then I would suggest taking radio to qualified cb repair shop,bring mic with you to shop so they can check it too,in fact I would bring the truck also so they can check antenna and adjust it if needed...Good luck

Thats because your Rf is powerful on high settings..try taping a AM radio "ferrite bar" to your coax in the back of radio for "RF filtering". Keep your power supply 15 inches away from radio. I recommend unhooking talkback on radios (it always causes feedback). But make sure speaker is good distance from the radio. I'd say 10 feet or so, behind radio. Change external speakers or add one with a long cord.

I have a cobra 200. The receive is some distortied, Most signals appears to be overmodilating with normal volume.


When the signals you are receiving are too strong "over-modulated" turn back your RF which will turn down the sensitivity of your receiver. If they are still over-modulated it may well be the other person has their modulation turned up too high from changing the setting inside their radio, turning up their mic gain or having their power mic turned up too high.

I need to up modulation on galaxy 959 people tell me that it is quiet,but has strong signel it also does not receve that well


Turning up the radio's power will not make your receive any better.

Turn your mic gain up. You can also use a power mic. this will bring your audio up.

If you want to turn your modulation up, turn VR16 up all the way. I can't remember which way turns it up. its always different in different radios. Try to the left all the way first. They test it. If no one hears you, you turned it all the way down. if that is the case open it up and turn it all the way the other direction.

After doing that you should have no trouble with your signal being low.

If you are not comfortable playing inside the radio, just get a good power mic, or take it to a radio shop. they are usually at truck stops. For $30 usually they will turn it all the way up.

The ant light and the other light light up red when i key the kic


the tx/rx liight is green when your radio is recieving signals and turns red when you are sending signals. the ANT light is red when your SWR is too high (over 3)

1. turn the knob labeled swr cal all the way counter clockwise
2. set the rf swr cal switch to the CAL position
3 key up the mic and hold it while you rotate the swr cal knob until the needle reaches the swr cal postition
4. set the swr cal rf switch to the swr position
5. key up the mic while on chanel one (record the the number)
6. switch to chanel 40 key up the mic (record the number)
if the number on chanel one is lower than the number on chanel 40 then your antenna is too long.

No modulation lots of signal


It really depends on what he messed with while he was inside the radio. If he accidentally turned down the rf output power, you can use an inline rf meter and then tune L37 and L38 for max rf output.

Radio Mic


Check the squelch on your radio thats not recieving. If there is a monitor button ( when pushed you will hear static) try pushing it.. then get someone to call you so you can check if you can hear them. On these radios you have 2 types of squelch....1 is called carrier squelch.... it basically opens when there is a strong enough signal. This lets you only hear strong signals and "squelch out" the distant ones and background static. The2nd. is "tone squelch" ... with your radio they are often called privacy tones. If you have 2 radios set with the same privacy tones you will only be able to hear each other... only radios that are transmitting with that privacy tone will be heard on your radio. Its a high frequency tone that can't be hear by the human ear that gets "embeded" with the transmitting signal. The recieving radio hears it and opens the squelch. So... if the radio thats rxing (recieving)your signal has its squelch set for just carrier squelch it will hear any signal thats strong enough to break the squech open.... basicaly any radio within a certain range. But if your radio (one with problem) has its squelch set for privacy tones you will not hear any other radios except the ones set with the same privacy tone.... the squelch will not open until it gets a tx signal with the right tone.... so if the txing (transmitting) radio is not using tone squelch but is using carrier squelch.... and the rxing radio is set for tone squelch... the rxing radio will not hear it. With tone (privacy tones/codes) squelch you need a tone to open the squelch and then the audio can be heard... with carrier squelch the squelch will open if ANY radio is within a certain range. Check the squelch setting on the problem radio... it could have a privacy tone set. Try pushing in the monitor button so you can hear static ( you want to hear everything including static) on both radios... tx on one radio at a time and listen if it can be heard on the other with the monitor button pushed. If you can't hear any audio when the broken one is transmitting then it COULD be the mic.... if you can hear both radios with the monitor button activated than the radios are txing and have tx audio and are working... if thats the case its the privacy tones that are the problem. Take care
