Yes Phil, The radio will work on 2 speakers except, you should add an 8 - 10 ohm 10 watt resistor to the output wires of any speaker that is not hooked up ( to protect the audio output chip)
Good Luck

Tommy, I know why you like the radio, but I must warn you that it isn't type accepted for the amateur band. (it would be the same thing as using an amateur radio for the fire department or sheriff for emergency uses.) I have looked for the mods to change it into a 10-meter radio, and they are not to be found. My suggestion to you is to look in a recent issue of QST about building a Bluetooth (c) transceiver for your regular 10-meter radio. I had to do the same thing for my HF rig which happens to be a Yaesu FT-857D. Fire me an e-mail if you want the schematics for the box. 73 and good luck!

I have a 2 Meter radio that ifs capable of pushing 75 Watts, I want to move it into Mt house for a base. I need to know what size power supply do I need to get to operate at 75 watt, the small power supply...

around 10 amps maybe?? depends on make/model of the radio, look at getting a 25A supply as you have plenty of spare then, and a switchmode wil be cheapest, better still make one from an old PC PSU

My cb radio is on but cant hear nothing sound is turn up but nothing come out

You didn't include the make / model CB you have, so I can only offer general suggestions. If these do not work, please provided the missing info.

Start out by locating and setting the the Volume to a position between 1/4 and 1/2 way clockwise, the Squelch to fully counter-clockwise and the "RF Gain" to fully clockwise to "MAX".

Check the position of the "PA / CB" switch and set to CB. When set to PA, both receive and transmit audio is sent directly to an outdoor speaker (instead of through the transmitter and antenna for reception by other radios). The PA speaker is usually connected to a jack at the rear of the radio. When the PA / CB switch is selected, the internal speaker is silenced even if there is no PA speaker connected.

At this point, you should hear static or voices (with an antenna connected). Do not attempt to transmit without a properly tuned antenna connected. If no sound is heard, there's something else wrong.

Ii bought a galaxy dx 959 new abought two and a half years ago. i ran it for about 3 months when it started having speaker issues. i would turn it on and run it for a while and i would loose speaker...

.004 off freq is not the worst for an AM radio. At this point, if you got it to tune to 28.185 that is the freq for channel 19 leave that. I might suggest you try a new potentiometer knob for your volume/squelch. They do go bad and can make it so you can't hear. There is a resistor in them and they go bad from time to time. Good luck.

Rolling Frequency Counter

I'm giving this info from the Master Edition of C.B. Tune-up manual Volume 1 year -1995. The original price of this info was $39.95 But I have had people help me with radio info. so here it is---- on page 60 it says [ Model ] : Galaxy Saturn ( and export models using the same Freq. counter module ) The most common problem with the { Galaxy Saturn } is after it has been on for awhile the read-out becomes unstable. And sometimes it will quit all together. This problem has been traced to a Zener Diode inside the freq, counter module. The square silver box located right behind the speaker. The Zener Diode inside marked D-603. This is a 2.4 volt , 1/4 watt diode next to IC-609 the ( LM-7808 ) regulator. REMEDY: change D-603 to a ( 2.4 volt , 1/2 watt diode) This should restore normal operation. {{{{ 357 - MAVERICK }}}

Maxon Model MCB10A

In order to test this unit you will need a power meter with a dummy load. connect the power meter and turn on the unit, key the microphone and look at the power meter it should have a reading of < 4 watts PEP unmodulated and = 4 watts PEP modulated. If you do not have this reading the RF transmitter in the CB might be malfunctioning. You will need a RF generator, a power meter with dummy load, oscilloscope and a multimeter to troubleshoot this problem with. If you do not have or do not know what this equipment is or how it works, please take your unit to a CB repair shop. Thank you, Shuttle83
