This has an LED channel display, which is the same as the Cobra 29. You can pick up a new one, there are a few color options available. You need to be very proficient with de-soldering and soldering small parts. You need a desoldering iron or desoldering wic, and no bigger than a 30 watt sodlering iron, any bigger can burn the foil trace, and some solder. You have to open the case, remove the faceplate screws, remove the faceplate, remove the channel selector/pcboard, and the channel display pc board together. Now you desolder the pins of the display, aproximately 20, remove the diplay, insert the new display observing direction (make sure it is face with the decimal to the right place), solder each pin to the pc board, and clip off the excess section of the pins (which is sticking out of the back of the channel display pc board. If you have changed to a blue display, you need to remove the orange or green cover, and replace it with a blue one (I make mine from blue transparant report covers) and hot glue it to the inside of the faceplate where the old one would have been. The reason for this is that the blue light will not shing blue thourgh a green or orange cover, and if you use clear, the display will be extremely bright, and the blue cover will knock down the glare a little. Now just put the radio back together and fire it up.

Now with that said, if you think you may have any trouble with this, you can take it to any cb shop and they should be able to help you.

Any more questions, don't hesitate to email me at

Will a diesel 360-3 mic ork on a galaxy dx99v

  • Hi, I can help.

  • The Diesel Electronics CB will work but you have to wire it as stated below.

  1. #1 Shield and Black - Ground
  2. #2 Yellow - Audio
  3. #3 White - Transmit
  4. #4 Red - Receive

  • I don't know if anyone before you has re-pined that mic or not so if you just remove that little Philips screw at the mic connector and then give it a quarter turn you can slide the connector out and take a look and compare the wiring. The actual numbering for the pins on the Galaxy 4 pin mic connector is as indicated below in the diagram. As you look at the mic tip make sure the indent on the mic is as it is the diagram.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I want to know where I can buy a Galaxy Dx-99V in Canada.

Might be a problem finding a DX99V anywhere. That model has been discontinued. Best bet would be to Google it..

Frequency counter displays two digets high from hump on fine clarifier adjestment on usb.27.186 insted of 27.185. also in am mode shows dead on with clarifer hump until mic is keyed thin dropes from 27.185...

Turn that fine clarifier a 1/4 turn or so to the right. I own a Galaxy DX99V and sometimes if that clarifier is just right it will drop down a hundredth of a MHz just like that when the mic is keyed. Your radio is just fine. Just adjust that clarifier a tad. The Galaxy DX99V is one of the best radios out there. I love them. -73-
