Hi, thanks for the info chiaflub67. I didnt think I could get much out of it. I bought it right for a spare. I usually run a galaxy 88 which does a great job. Thanks again for the info!!!

Is it good for a Galaxy 29HD peaked & tuned to dead key 3 watts and swing almost all the way to the right? I run a 4ft.Firestick antenna.

Stock radios dead key 1-2 watts and swing 4 watts max per FCC regulations. The swing is when you speak or whistle into the microphone. All the way to the right does not tell me watts or type of meter, so I cannot say. Typically to the right does mean more power out. Looks very good at 3 watts. For most people I suggest a longer antenna. Length = range, especially for CB's.

Someone peaked the radio, i want it back to 4 watt, how do i do it

you will need an external watt meter and an alignment diagram. Go to , look up Galaxy, dx939 and click on the radio alignment and it will tell you which variables to turn to get it back to 4 watts.

How do i peak and tune my galaxy dx 55v

Rather than turning it up ,buy yourself a small 200 watt linier and connect it to your radio.That way if you don't like the way it sounds just take off the box and sell it .Your radio remains the same.

Just purchased a new galaxy dx959. Coax and k40 10k watt antenna. Installed it in my peterbilt 379. I have a lot of background noise. I tried unhooking the coax from back of radio and the noise goes...

You probably have the 959 that has a MOSFET final. It is not recommended that you try to get more power/mod by just turning pots. This can shorten the life of the MOSFET drastically. I normally set the power output to 7 watts and the mod to 100%. This give around 30 watts peak on AM and around 25-30 watts sideband. You need proper test equipment to align the radio.

As far as background noise, this type of radio does have more that others. Make sure the Noise blanker and ANL are turned on. If you are getting noise from equipment in the vehicle, you should take your truck to a good CB shop. They can find out what is causing the noise and fix it.

Just want know how to peak the power back up on my 29 ltd classic. its only putting out 2 watts on ch. 20 I suspect someone had a linnear on it prior.

Just tune L10,L9,L8 for maximum.

How electronically able are you?
I can tell you how to do what most call the super modulation mod, it isn't too hard and isn't very expensive. (Unless you take it to a CB shop!)

Galaxy DX959

it can not be tuned to go high or low you need to add switches for that and then realign the radio.
