Galaxy DX 55HP stopped transmitting, but will receive. When the mic is keyed the power meter goes past max and wont transmit. Tried different mics and no difference

connect to a meter. if there is rf power on a watt meter at full wattage. then the am regulator transistor is bad. less than $5 part.

Is it possible to convert the cobra 29 wx nw st sound tracker cb to 10 meter amateur band?

No it cannot. If you want that buy a Ranger or a Galaxy.

The 29 can be altered to increase modulation and turned down in power to match it to amp for increased output of power.

Set to dead key a watt or so with a 100 watt amp it would dead key low and swing to 80 to 100 watts pep.(peak envelope power)

My radio shows power but its not transmitting out and shows only5 watts on a meter

Don't rely on that meter. use a good Known external meter to check.. make sure your mode switch is on am... not any other mode. also try a different mic. New mics start --RK56's$38.99/Stock mics$6.99...

Galaxy saturn tubro 100 watt power is sticking after key up.

Not sure what you mean completely. If you mean, when you key up, it keys at 100 watts and stays, then this is probably not a problem.

If it doesn't swing, it is either the watt meter you are using, or you have the power up too high, or both.

I usually key my saturn turbo around 80 watts. You have to be careful with these radios. they get hot fast and when they do, they get whacky. Make sure you have a PC fan plowing on the heat sink on the back.

The higher the dead key, the less swing you will see.

Now as for the watt meter....

There are a few types of meters out there. The 2 most common are ones that read AVG, or average watts, or PEP or Peak envelope power, which in short terms is your Peak wattage. Some meters do both.

An AVG meter will not read peak wattage, or swing. So if you meter is an AVG meter, or is set to AVG, then it will not read swing, and will show you your dead key, and that's it. Some times the needle will move a little, but it is not showing your true swing.

All in all a PEP meter is a loose representation any way, because you really cannot get an accurate reading when there is modulation. But it's close enough. You would need a spectrum analyzer to really see what you are putting out with modulation. AVG with no modulation is a more accurate reading however you cannot see swing.

Now PEP while transmitting in SSB with modulation, would be accurate. Just not AM, but like I said, its close enough and is what every one goes by.

I don't know if your Saturn turbo has been modded or peaked and tuned but, you should see a max of about 170 to 200 watts swing on that radio if its been done right. But you will need a PEP reading meter to see that.

I wouldn't run it past 80 watt dead key for long. With that radio you should really only run what you need. For instance, when I am using mine, I start at around 70--80 watts, and do a check, and if it's not strong enough I bring it up a little, until the audio sounds good to who I am talking too.

Like I said, you have to keep it from getting too hot.

Whats the value on a great used galaxy dx88hl?

This is a ten meter radio easily converted to the cb band.
The reason for such conversions is to have a hopped up hybrid cb/ten meter radio,
Usually exceeding the 4 watt limit on cb radios imposed by the FCC. A
conversion will also open up many more frequencies to the radio. This is
not illegal to own or listen to, but is illegal to transmit on the cb
band and anywhere else without proper licensure, which is as easy to
obtain as sending away for an electronics2_bing.gif degree on a matchbook.

The Galaxy 88 is not a bad radio for use on cb and they are well known for their loudness on AM, something that is coveted a great deal in cb land.

I would estimate in good working condition - you could get $200 for it.
Of course the market dictates the price.

HERE is one listed for $125 - broken

With the inclusion of printed manuals and documents SEE HERE You could fetch $100 more.

Runin a 700 watt amp drive w/super star radio 2watts in

There are a couple of reasons this could be happening #1 and the most probable one is that your watt meter only reads RMS instead of PEP or #2 you are over driving your amp.Try to find a friend that has a watt meter that reads PEP and try that if that does'nt work turn down your drive some.Good Luck Dan

If he has a REAL watt meter not one of these FAKE reading meters it is doing all it is capable of doing. One question is he checking it on the same antenna or a dummy load and is he using the same watt meter he used years ago? these are all honest issues. Seek out a local Ham operator see if he has a good watt meter or go to your local Motorola Radio Shop see if they have a Bird Watt meter if that radio reads as indicated on the bird or similar watt meter there is nothing wrong with the radio to start with.

Radio has 10 watts on side band

Readjust your load coil. You should never attempt this without a load and a watt meter.
