How do I stop the frequency counter board in a DX-959 from loosing contact and making the display stop working?

You may have what we call a bad solder joint or a problem with the connection point from the counter to the radio. You need the expertise of a CB radio repairman.

Looking for a radio repair shop to work on a galexy radio in central wisconsin

when you say on frequency are you using the radio frequency counter or an external one ? If you mess round with the wrong adjustment you will never get it back on frequency . If you go to a truck stop , for the most , they all have a cb shop . There are two truck stops in black river falls and I'm positive one of them has a shop.

CB base Station picking up interfence with inverter

Inverters are full of diodes and diodes are extremly noisy devices. Also the filtering in CB radios is not the best as manufactures try to keep costs down to compete. Try unplugging the antenna from the radio and see if the noise stops. If it does not stop, then buy an inline filter to go in the supply to the radio and place it as close to the radio as possible. If the noise DOES STOP when the antenna is unplugged then it is coming in through the antenna and there is not much you can do but maybe buy a much higher quality radio with better filtering. You might try moving the antenna. Magnet mounts are not as good at blocking noise as high quality permanent mounts. Work to get your SWR as low as possible. Use high grade low loss coax from the antenna into the radio and use high quality connectors like the Amphenol brand. It takes time and effort to solve this type problem and some times nothing works.

Can cigarette lighter plug be used for 93t galaxy radio?

Yes, but be very careful of polarity. If you hook it up backwards the radio will stop working because it will blow the polarity protection diode.

My CB radio will stop working and display 88. After a period of time I can turn it back on and it will work. It is acting like it is overheating.

your SWR is too high. Your antenna is not tuned. You are hurting the radio. When the antenna is not tuned, the RF energy does not leave the antenna, but bounces back and hurts the radio.

Cb radio

I tried looking up cb radio shops on google maps for you, but only find Radio Shack. You can always check close to your bigger truk stops, that is the normal place for an actual cb shop to be located. You can also ask the truck stop employees where a local cb radio shop is located.

If you were closer to Texas, I would help you out. But most major cities have a cb shop close to the major truck stops, such as Petro, Flying-J, Pilot, Loves. Some even have cb radio shops inside them.

If I can be of more assistance, please feel free to email me:
