If there is no transmit at all, it sounds like it wasn't fully refurbished. If it is just low modulation then just turn VR16 and VR14 all the way to the left.

If its not working at all, send it back. It hasn't been refurbished.

I just want to know the procedure for tuning or mod kiting a galaxy 959 dx

this is for any radio.

follow the audio wire. to the variable resistor on that line. for your modulation. for TX go backwards from the rf transistors to see if there is one for rf power actually would be a voltage increase/decrease to the bias. and collectors. thats how to trace any radio for the tune up adjustments. the others would be for ssb or rx tx meter and squelch etc... just follow them thru the circuit ... all this can be done by a radio shop for less than $10 remember not to let or yourself cut out any of the circuit that will cause overmodulation. and its just wasted. looks good on a wattmeter but not on a oscilloscope .. and other on adjacent channels.. lol..

Can't talk about 2 miles ,swr is good

If your talking at least 2 then it sounds like it is the antenna. Any antenna should talk 10-12 miles on a good day, no matter what radio you're using. So I'd get a second look at that system.

I do not have enough audio on my dx 959 galaxy 40 channel radio

You can turn the modulation up by turning VR16 to the left.

This should give you some big audio.

How can i boost my galaxy dx 959

You will have to take this radio to a tune and peak shop for this upgrade. most audio store tech can do this upgrade or, just locate a truck stop near your location and im sure there is a radio guy on the premises that will assist in this upgrade as well. great radio by the way:)
