SOUNDS LIKE A COLD SOLDER JOINT OR A BAD COMPONNET WHEN IT WARMS UP THATS WHEN IT STARTS ..TAKE OFF THE COVER SO THAT YOU CAN SEE THE SOLDER SIDE OF THE BOARD PUT POWER TO THE RADIO AND WHEN IT WARMS UP AND SHUTS DOWN TAKE A LITTLE PIECE OF WOOD OR PLASTIC AND PROBE ALL THE SOLDER CONNECTIONS TO CHECK FOR A COLD SOLDER JOINT IT MAY BE GRAY IN COLOR MAY NOT.. SEE IF IT GOES ON AND OFF.. IF SO RESOLDER THAT SOLDER JOINT.......IF THIS DOES NOT WORK ....PICK UP SOME FREEZE SPRAY AND SPRAY IT ON THE COMPONNETS ON THE OUTHER SIDE OF THE BOARD THIS IS WHAT A SERVICE PLACE WILL DO IF THAT DOES NOT WORK NOW BRING IT TO A SERVICE AND LET THEM SCRATCH THERE HEAD GOOD LUCK

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.

The freq counter stays lit at 10.625mnz the claifier knob or the channel selecter will not change the freq counter


This problem, really need to be on a bench to test.. FREE at any good cb shop, to tell you what is wrong.... But most times when a freq counter is not working. Either the crystal is bad, poorly soldered, or its not receiving an input signal. Best way to test is to have a second freq counter external inline using coax.. and check the output of the radio and see if it shows correct or wrong. If it is showing correct they you internal freq counter is messed up. and needs to be check for a bad crystal or solder joints. sometimes even the voltage regulators go bad.. If it is showing a wrong freq on external counter then check the radio's crystal and oscillator circuit. this too can be as simple as a cold solder joint. on the solder side check the small surface mount diode near the PLL, next to the PLL shielded covers. It is normally black these come loose often times too. If you need more help feel free to call or text for more help.

Use a known good external freq counter, and do the tx alignment. that will put your meter back on showing the right freq when you are..

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 }}}

U mean on sideband? Frequency counter only useful on other than sideband operation. This does not mean the carrier insertion osc. is on frequency. If it needs adjustment, your voice will sound high/ low on transmit. Incoming signals will sound right after adjusting the osc.
