Measure out your coax in 3ft intervals. Like if you need 7ft use a 9ft length of coax. Also make sure your mirrors are grounded use a external swr meter as well, the internal swr on the galaxy could be off. .

Self adjusting SWR does not work on 959 Galaxy


the swr on the radio is not what you are thinking it is. You have to set the SWR to anything below a 2.0 and the meter will let you know when and if your swr gets to high.

Get or have someone Set the SWR's on your antenna.That is the first thing you should always do before even talking on the radio.. Check the antenna.

You will need an SWR meter to check your antenna. FIRST.

Replace the AM final, then make sure your antenna is tuned to lowest SWR to prevent the final from burning out again.

Quiet Galaxy DX 44V


Sounds like you have lost a final or a driver transistor if so a shop or reputable repairman is your best answer. You should also have him check your cables and SWR on your antenna system as well as check for loose grounds. Sounds like you had a high SWR and blew out a final transistor. But it could be as simple as a loose component or cold solder joint in the radio. Get professional help.

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.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, determine if the needle will deflect signifying power output when switch to PWR:
  • if yes, then check continuity of coaxial cable as well as grounding of antenna mounts;
  • if no, then the finals and driver would require further looking into (8 X IRF520).
Additionally, check the 2 30Amps fuses

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
