Get a schematic of the radio and use a volt meter to check out the voltages coming to your counter.

SOURCE: Rolling Frequency Counter

I'm giving this info from the Master Edition of C.B. Tune-up manual Volume 1 year -1995. The original price of this info was $39.95 But I have had people help me with radio info. so here it is---- on page 60 it says [ Model ] : Galaxy Saturn ( and export models using the same Freq. counter module ) The most common problem with the { Galaxy Saturn } is after it has been on for awhile the read-out becomes unstable. And sometimes it will quit all together. This problem has been traced to a Zener Diode inside the freq, counter module. The square silver box located right behind the speaker. The Zener Diode inside marked D-603. This is a 2.4 volt , 1/4 watt diode next to IC-609 the ( LM-7808 ) regulator. REMEDY: change D-603 to a ( 2.4 volt , 1/2 watt diode) This should restore normal operation. {{{{ 357 - MAVERICK }}}

Symptom:Buzzing or motorboating sound in either the transmit or receive.
Problem: TR602 is oscillating
Cure: Replace C602 with a .01uF cap {Cap is located in the power supply board}.
RG 66,99,DX2517 Replace Q54 2SB754 60watt 7A with a higher power 2SB817 100 Watt 12A. Derating of this component will cool operation, provide better voltage stability,decrease wobble, allow voltage increase to 14.5 volts comfortably. (replace 10 volt caps in this section of the radio to a minimum of 16 volts before increasing supply voltage to this level)and provide faster swing rise time, Replace Q37 2SA473 to a 2SA1012-0 or ECG153 this will improve the clarity and volume of the modulation and it will also run a lot cooler.

Galaxy 88hl frequency display only has decimal point, channel readout 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.

Galaxy 979 SSB Modulation Problem Voice Cuts Out.


It sounds like you had a cold solder joint. Leaving it in the sun probably temporarily corrected it. I would take it to a tech to have all the solder joints corrected, unless you are handy with a soldering iron. The problem will most likely come back.

All you have to do is pull the top cover off, which will show the bottom, or trace side of the board. Using a soldering iron, make sure any solder joint that doesn't fully look soldered and make sure the solder is fully covering the joint. If need you may have to add solder.

As for the frequency counter going nutty when you modulate, Don't worry about it. There is nothing wrong. Because when you modulate you are modulating the carrier signal you are changing the signal so the counter will interpret that as a different freq because it cannot differentiate. Freq counters are for use with carrier only. As long as the carrier shows correct, it is right.

Galaxy 959 Testing TP3 for AM, LSB, USB with FC-347 or what other freq. counter can be used for this?


An external freq counter will always do a better test then the one on the unit . Do you have an oscilloscope? A function generator will also have a freq counter . Now the ultimate is a spectrum analyzer. you don't need all these but the function generator will work fine.

What are the buts & nubs go to make the cb work which ones trun or push ?


Assuming you're talking about the Galaxy DX88HL, and assuming the mad has been done to reach the 11 meter band, you press the band button in, that put's you to the E-H banks, select the E/A bank which is high bank E. with the frequency counter on, it should read 26.965 for channel 1. If it reads 26.975, then your +10KHz switch is on, turn it off. you'll then be properly set for 26.965 (ch.1) - 27.405 (ch.40). You also have 5 "hidden" frequencies, these are at ch. 3, 7, 11, 15 and 19. To get to the "hidden" frequencies, go to any of the channels listed and turn on your 10KHz switch. Those frequencies are not attainable on radios that do not have a +10KHz switch or a clarifier capable of sliding that far over. To do repairs and for a full list of schematics, diagrams and so forth, I suggest this site, it has the most coverage of the Galaxy DX88HL as well as other galaxies that I've been able to find. http://www.cbtricks.com/radios/galaxy/dx88hl/index.htm .
