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.

Microphone not working


I think it is safe to say 90% of radio problems are microphone. You get a cheap one when you by just about any radio. I believe you are seeing the meter move but not getting audio from your talkback. No matter remove the mic jack plug from radio. For you particular radio looking at the end of the jack notice the small raised numbers. These female connectors no matter the mic type wired for this radio model has the following wires connected or in your case disconnected. 1-(Ground) 2- (Audio) 3-(Transmit) and 4- (Receive).
A RK56 mic would be my suggestion Astatic 636L the second choice a little cheaper but audio it not a crisp.
Don't waste your money a repairing the mic or buying a diesel or road pro or even a cdl mic like a cdl 56 or that Skythumper they are RoadKing 56 wannabees. Sorry about the rant my point is RK56 is Quality.

RED SWR ALERT LIGHT COMES ON WHEN I KEY UP


In most cases if the mic works the common cause is the transmitter in the mother board is shorting out or not soldered to the board properly. another cause could be that your antenna is too close to the CB and will disrupt the signal.

The variabel key drops sometimes drops when radio is keyed up and sometime the RF power knob has to be turned farther to bring it back up on my Galaxy DX959.


I'm not shure if you have tried but turn the mic gain down then check the d.k output. If you still lose power after a d.k it could be a final it's hard to say w/o seeing it. Also an external meter is more stable than the internal one. Check your coax, make shure all are tight. If you need more help e-mail me at

Good luck
