Well 1st a good radio fragile it is but it kicks **** well
well that hum might be something being lose on the board itself
try to poke the board as you have the radio power with a plastic stick see by pressing you can pin pont the area where something might be lose if you feel risky try soldering yourself.
that's how you learn that gelly rubbery substance inside the radio means cratical part of the bord should be play with unless you are a professional no doubt I hope I help you a bit no doubt

I have a galaxy dx 33 hml it was doing fine till it fell off dash , now when I key up its really loud through my talk back, and it squeels . Does anybody know what could have happened?

you may have cracked the pcb board and its shorting out the audio and thus making it squeal. Best to take it to a tech and let them tell you whats wrong .

FC-347 causes radio's transmit frequency to jump around when plugged in.

I don't understand why anyone would want to install one of these when the radio already has one.

Getting a humming sound out of my galaxy dx95t?? also i dont feel that my range is good only about 4 to 5 miles. do i need to hook it straight to the battery of my truck ? using a monkey made antena, is...

Your SWR (Standing Wave Ratio) is 1.5 this is acceptable. Now your radio comes with a 2SC2290 final transistor. This produces 50 watts PEP (Peak Envelope Power) But you say you are getting 4 or 5 miles. You should be getting FAR more than this. So this hum could be your problem. What your hearing is a ground loop. Yes, this big of a radio you should run strait to the battery and I would put a 15 watt fuse inline on both the ground wire and positive wire within the first foot of your battery post. A blade fuse and holder is fine. This is what I use. Next get yourself a copper braid strap and ground the radio a second time. Install the braid strap from the radio to a bolt on the passenger side floor board or any other suitable place but make sure it bolts down tight. This is the proper way to install this radio and it should also fix the hum. You may also need to address the microphone if it is still humming but I think this will take care of you.

When my truck is running the radio works fine until I key up then the RF meter goes to 9 and says there and the red light stays on this is a Galaxy DX 98 VHP radio

is it acting like its keying up fulll power and no modulation or very very low modulation.. its prob has a shorted "am regulator" .. the big transistor in the back corner by the power wire connector.

Backlighting not working on a dx 33 hml

The Galaxy DX33HML does not have backlighting. If you mean you have Nitro knobs that don't work, you should take it back to whoever installed them. There is no way to tell how they were wired.

Galaxy 33 hml

This is not a simple answer not knowing if it ever worked or not. I have a rfx75 installed on a DX 88 and it preforms flawlessly. If I were you I would find a reputable CB Shop and ask for their help.

Can you tell me if a galaxy 33hml is a good radio it has been converted to cb channels and is priced for 100.00 but needs the lights fixed and i don't really want to buy a radio that is out dated or isn't...

If I were to spend the money I would not buy used such as this. Would recommend buying new with money back guarantee. Radio Shack would be a good place to check out some prices.
