I've had great Sucess with the A99 in the past, unless you want to shell out the coin for a "Beam" style directional antenna go for the A99

Antenna rec. For Galaxy 2547?

depending where you live you could put up just about any antenna. If you live in a condo??? you could go with a di-pole.If you own your own home then there are many antennas to choose from. You could get an antron 99 for around $100.00 or you could go with a maco or a serius antenna to some close friends on the radio and get their recommendation

Installing a echo board into a Realistic 5 pin mic.

95% of realistic mics are 5 pin It would be easier to install it inside the radio.Better than that you buy a noise toy that hooks to the rear of the radio and then your antenna hooks to the toy.

Low pwr on xmit,weak rec,swr alert lite on xmit swr 1:4-1 on ch 20

you have no power because your radio is not tuned to your antenna.You get a new radio and put junky coax and a decent antenna and you expect it to work right. Get 75 ft of rg-213 and you will see a change.

My radio is not broadcasting reports.

Maybe its not transmitting because a Final Transistor has blown. Check to see if it receives well, change antennas,microphone...get a meter to measure SWR/POWER out. If it don't transmit or receive it may be seriously damaged. A final only cost several dollars if you know how to solder one in place. Its always like 2SC2078(Radio Shack carries them) it has 3 prongs to be soldered on the board with a heatsink and screwed to back with a ceramic insulator and heat glue. Swr over 2.1 will cause transmitter damage. Bad antennas,lightning may cause these problems. Get an antenna factory tuned at near 1.5 for 27mhz.Wilson 1000's,K40,Antron A99(18 ft.base) are good antennas.Look at for radio supplies,antennas and new radios.

DX 2547 Only transmitting at 1 watt and swinging backwards on the power on high side from 4 watts to 1 watt.

Check the SWR reading on your antenna. If you have the wrong adjustment here, it is like having the wrong antenna, or none at all. You will need a SWR Meter, and somebody who knows what he/she is doing to help you.

Looking for motorola cb finals...Where can i find some. Please disregard if there is a charge. No new email too me other than this quiestion, please. thanks.

I believe you mean Mitsubishi 2SC1969. The eleflow 2sc1969 is a cheaper and equal if not better performer. There are a lot of fake 1969s out there.
I perfer irf520 mosfet more durable with high swr antenna system and cheaper Mouser.... have not used them but heard good things, RF Parts..expensive and Digikey.... expensive this place is cheap but very slow shipping 3 weeks for my stuff but good quality.

My galaxy 2517 (NO TX)

if you have another radio put it right next to the 2547. turn on the monitor radio with no antenna on the same channel and key the 2547. if you can hear it the final transistor is bad. let me know if that worked
