If you are talking on SSB then their is never a dead key wattage.
SSB uses all modulation, no dead key.

Galaxy DX 55HP stopped transmitting, but will receive. When the mic is keyed the power meter goes past max and wont transmit. Tried different mics and no difference


connect to a meter. if there is rf power on a watt meter at full wattage. then the am regulator transistor is bad. less than $5 part.

What is Dead Key on a CB Radio?


Deadkey is slang it is CW or Carrier wave which is RF power produced before modulation/audio is mixed in which stimulates PEP wattage slang being SWING WATTS. A Watt Meter is used to measure it which is often a combination device Wattage/SWR/Modulation meter.

Got a connex 3300HP has a ranger board and chipset won't modulate recieves fine keys up relay clicks needle doesn't move no voice either cant find schematics


You may have a dead meter.
Modulation is audio's affect on swing wattage or pep. Notice that needle moving more with your voice.
Dead key or carrier wattage is without your voice enhancing the power only with mic keyed.
I can only assume that the chipset you are referring to is an ic chip audio or pll which must be working if you are receiving audio.
Check your mic cord................ transmit and modulation and even your receive volume can be affected by the cord/mic plug solder joints or broken wires here.

Keys up to max watts low modulation


The audio amp Transistor is most likely going out. when you have full wattage on a dead key and no or little af output.

Icr 2980 only get 20 wates on am


20 watts is very good considering it comes from the factory with only 4 watts. 4 watts is the leagal wattage allowed by the FCC. But FCC doesn't care any more.

If you need more wattage then that, you will need to get an AM linear amplifire. The radio's dead key must be set to a lower dead key to run it with out burning it up.

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!

Radio has 10 watts on side band


Readjust your load coil. You should never attempt this without a load and a watt meter.
