Not a good radio once its tuned up they turn up the audio to hi thats makes it clip when talking..the radio is at factory setting when you get it,95%modulation..any more will cause problems.all you can do it have it set back to thr org. setting and then check the driver buffer and final transistors one may have blown due to improper tuning...good luck doc's cb shop ny

I have a Galaxy DX 33 HP CB radio, but i have been told this is a HAM radio, I had bought 3 on a sale from e-bay as new out of box units, I had my friend hook it up , and he says it will neither send...

Google search suggests it's a 10m HAM radio.  CB radio is on a different frequency (around 11m)

You might take a look at this page which looks like it is talking about how to convert this radio to CB.

(Disclaimer: note that it's illegal to run more than 4W on CB channels in the US)

Hope this helps

Bought radio at Hamfest. Hooked it up worked flawless. Great ability to fine tune signals. Let a tech talk me into installing echo board. He tried two new boards. They wouldn't work. Told him never mind ,...

The guy who was really not a tech probably didn't hook the mic wires back to the mic jack correctly. that will cause the radio not to TX or RX.

Next time make sure the tech knows what he is doing, and check on line for cb radio shop blacklists to make sure that one isn't on the list.

This guy owes you either a new radio, or pay to have that radio repaired.

If both echo boards didn't work, he doesn't know what he is doing, because he put them in wrong.

How do you tune and peak a cobra 29 ltd classic and how many watts will it put out after it is tunned and peaked

i would highly suggest you take it to a cb shop to get a cb tuned and peaked. before you do that though, make sure you have a good antenna system. a good antenna will have a much greater effect on your cb than tuning and peaking. as far as output, who knows? it all depends on the skill of the person doing the tuning. be warned that any output over 4 watts is illegal and you could recieve hefty fines if caught with an illegal radio.

You may have ant. trouble if the SWR is hi
that feeds power back into the radio and
could damage it,lets hope not start with a
good ant.and maybe the radios are not hurt
to bad.

Cobra 29 NW LTD does nothing

Why do you have to fix it? If the local CB shop looked at it last then take it back to them its their problem.

Matching Antenna, or ??????

If the antenna is tunable, you definitely need to start out by having the swr set properly on the antenna. Also, make sure the plastic ferrel, (the small round white piece) is between the top of the antenna bracked and the antenna itself. It is there to make sure the antenna does not ground out to the vehicle. If the antenna is grounding out, it will be like no antenna at all. I have also had a few customers that have had broken coaxes straight out of the factory package on cheaper antenna setups.
