You may have cold solder joints ( broken lead connection/s to the pc board) around the PLL chip area. Also you may have a switch that needs cleaned. To clean the switches, purchase some contact cleaner ( I use WD 40, although some techs don't recomend it ) and spray the switches and pots ( volume control, squelch etc )> Aviod getting any oil on the board. . Good Luck

Have galaxy 88 radio started rx off freq. then a couple days later it started to quite tx and rx while talking. can you help.


Hello,
It sounds like your crystal has gone bad. More than likely it is the 10.25 crystal. Unfortunately if you have no Oscilloscope then you need to take it to a radio tech as you have to inject a frequency into the triple band to get the radio to Oscillate again, once the crystal is replaced.
Regards, Tony

My galaxy dx 66v when i turn it on it stays keyed all the time even without mic pluged in..........and when i turn my talkback switch on all it does is squeal.need help


make sure the mic connector board is not touching anything inside. if it is not.. below it is a diode for the TX/RX.. replace it with 2 914 diodes and should work again.. 99% of the time..

New radio, TX/RX freq. off 7khz and clarifier non functionable


under warranty that would be cover no charge.! send it in.. The clarifier on a factory radio will only adjust the RX.. not the TX.. unless there's a "course and fine." the course would do both. the fine would be rx only

HOW DO I INSTALL ROGER BEEP ON A GALAXY 33 CB RADIO


Does the roger beep come with instructions? It can vary between beep boards.

Typically it gets installed inline with the mic jack.

There is a wire or pin on the board where the tx wire, and the rx wires go.These wires get disconnected from the mic jack, then a wire goes to the tx pin. Then there is an audio wire that gets connected to the audio wire of the mic jack. Then the black wire to ground, and the red wire to switched 12v right off the power switch.

Here is a schematic of the board connected to the mic jack so you know what pin is what.

Again, I would need to know what roger beep board you would like to install.

148GTL Cobra (no tx)


Bad transmitter. You can:
1) take it to a repair shop
2) get a new radio
3) repair the transmitter with a stock replacement transmitter
4) check the inside of the radio, make sure everything is where it's supposed to be
5) make sure that you are using the correct power supply for the unit

If the problem is too extensive and you consider getting a new radio similar to the 148GTL, try the Galaxy DX 2527. It's a BIG radio. But it's production was discontinued. If you can't find a Galaxy DX 2527, try a Galaxy DX 2517, it's similar to the DX 2527, but with less features, but has great sound, I get nothing but good comments when I talk on it. The DX 2527 has an okay transmitter, it doesn't sound all too good by itself, so that's why you have the echo and robot voice changer options.

Hope this helps!
