Question about Galaxy Radios DX-95T Base CB Radio
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.
