Re: Galaxy Dx-88 HL

Anything over 10 amps should be sufficient i would assume. if it calls for a 10 amp fuse anything less than that would be under powering the unit

Customer has lost his power supply cord. where can he purchase another cord. power cord is three prongs.

  • Hi, I can help.

  • For the Radio Shack TRC-447 this is just a standard 3 PIN DC cord. Many CB's use the same cord and they are interchangeable. Some Cobra, Uniden, Radio Shack use the same cord. Texxcomm is a great place to get parts from.

  • If you have any coimmments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

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.

I accidently plugged the ground wire into the positive side

Sounds like byou blew the transmiter diode. Take it to a good CB shop and they can replace it. Most reliable ones will bench check for free.

Radio has 10 watts on side band

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