Cold / Broken solder joint, or flaky ribbon cable or connector. Re-seat all connectors in the radio, and while you're in there, look for any obvious solder anomalies.

I've heard the solder joints on the board loosen from vibration. You may crack the case open and
check for loose solder connections. Just a thought. GT

check the power lines and solder connections for them too.

Good Luck

Galaxy DX 98VHP meter stopped moving . There is no swr reading, nothing. Even with a seperatye meter atached or a dummy load, the meter on the galxy is not working. Did I lose all power?


You appear to be aware of you antenna system with the separate meter attached so the tells me you dont punish a radio with an high swr. I am just guessing red wire/solder in mic cord at plug given that it is a side mic mic jack.

I have a galaxy dx 959 I had a connex board put in it sometimes it sounds great then the next time it sounds destoreded or a loud sweel


did they put both the power ground and the audio ground together when they installed it? some echo's can only have the one ground , not both.. either the power wires ground or the coax ground on the audio wires.

also check the swr's..

Hi, does anyone know how to connect an LED to replace the original meter lamp on a Galaxy DX 959?, or please refer me to a site where to find this information. Thank you so much. Osvaldo


LED are diodes that operate around 2volts DC. A resistor must be soldered in series with anode or cathod side of diode if connecting to 12 volts DC. Anode to ground....if unsure start with 10k resistor and check voltage and work your way down to around 1.8 volts is ideal

I have galaxy dx 959 the freak meter shows 27.175 until you key down then it show 27.185 what do i need to do to fix ?


it sounds like the pc board is not grounded to the frame. remove covers wedge a small screw driver on the edge of the board against the frame housing with mic keyed up. caution not to much pressure don't break the board. check the black wire on the inside of the power cord plug. last try extra ground wire for power supply to a screw on the out side of the radio cover

Refurbished dx 959 from galaxy no modulation? no transmitt?


If there is no transmit at all, it sounds like it wasn't fully refurbished. If it is just low modulation then just turn VR16 and VR14 all the way to the left.

If its not working at all, send it back. It hasn't been refurbished.
