I agree with Melanie. didn't even read her solution just the problem and I said antenna. Try a wilson 2000 or 5000 or do like I have .A preditor mounted dead center of my p/u. 20 to 25 miles not a problem,bare foot.

If your talking at least 2 then it sounds like it is the antenna. Any antenna should talk 10-12 miles on a good day, no matter what radio you're using. So I'd get a second look at that system.

Self adjusting SWR does not work on 959 Galaxy

the swr on the radio is not what you are thinking it is. You have to set the SWR to anything below a 2.0 and the meter will let you know when and if your swr gets to high.

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..

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.

I have a galaxy dx 959 it keys up has no soundor receive

Try a different mic, they CAN cause no sound (receive), and no talking. If that isn't the issue, I'd go to my coax cable, even though they don't look broken doesn't mean that they aren't. I've seen quite a few brand new ones that are bad right out of the box. If all of that checks out I'd grab an SWR/power meter and do a check to see if the radio was registering on the inline meter. I'd say use the one on the radio, but I'd like to see it on the inline so you can really tell whats going on with the radio. I think I'd also get a spare radio, or a friends, and put it in my vehicle and see if it gets out. That would be the best way to check your coax and antenna setup. Aside from that, which is just simple cb logic, I'd say you may possibly have to bring the radio to a tech and have them check it out. I have a DX-959 and a DX-99V and I gotta say, knock on wood, no issues with either one. I really hoped that helped and let me know how things turn out. Its always good to hear from people after they figure out what was wrong, that way we all learn...
