It can not be tuned to go high or low you need to add switches for that and then realign the radio.

SOURCE: i have a galaxy dx959

Heat comb or heatsink for dissipating the heat for internal component. In this case the final transistors which could be 2sc1969 older units or Mosfet 520's newer models.
This does not come on this radio from factory. Radio has most likely had another final added for additional transmit power and the heatsink is for additional cooling.

When ikey the mike on sideband lights go on off like your turning it on and off like it sucks all the power runnig it inside house with three amp converter brand new got it today


3 Amps is probably not enough for this radio. To test this diagnosis, conenct a car battery inline with your charger or just the battery to the radio. BE SURE TO HAVE A FUSE ON THE POSITIVE power wire and observe polarity ( + and - ) . If the radio works like it should, you now know the power supply is not big enough. Try a 10-15 amp supply. The manual shows the radio to have a 4 watt ouput on Am and 12 watts on SSB. My experience with Galaxy radios says go with at least 10 amp supply. Here is your manual and a service info page.

Have new dx959 doesnt get out very far talking 100yrds or so use rdking 56 mic mic works fine on old radio pc 78 and gets out fine also are 959 radios ok or junk has good reception


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.
