Modulation is
VR16 FOR AM and VR 13 for SSB
RF Power is VR 14 for high and VR 18 for Low power on AM
VR 17 for SSB power.

SOURCE: my galaxy 959 cb radio wil not put out any transmit

Hi,

Based on your post of no transmit, a couple of possibilities:
1. defective microphone or cord or PTT switch (the red TX light does not come on when pressed);
2. TX light comes on but no output, defective finals and/or drivers. These are the transistors screwed to the chassis of the radio very near the antenna terminal;
3. defective regulator IC that provides the TX B+;
5. insufficient amperage from you power supply;
6. too high SWR.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: refurbished dx 959 from galaxy no modulation? no transmitt?

If there is no transmit at all, it sounds like it wasn't fully refurbished. If it is just low modulation then just turn VR16 and VR14 all the way to the left.

If its not working at all, send it back. It hasn't been refurbished.

SOURCE: i need to up modulation on galaxy 959

Turning up the radio's power will not make your receive any better.

Turn your mic gain up. You can also use a power mic. this will bring your audio up.

If you want to turn your modulation up, turn VR16 up all the way. I can't remember which way turns it up. its always different in different radios. Try to the left all the way first. They test it. If no one hears you, you turned it all the way down. if that is the case open it up and turn it all the way the other direction.

After doing that you should have no trouble with your signal being low.

If you are not comfortable playing inside the radio, just get a good power mic, or take it to a radio shop. they are usually at truck stops. For $30 usually they will turn it all the way up.

I just want to know the procedure for tuning or mod kiting a galaxy 959 dx

this is for any radio.

follow the audio wire. to the variable resistor on that line. for your modulation. for TX go backwards from the rf transistors to see if there is one for rf power actually would be a voltage increase/decrease to the bias. and collectors. thats how to trace any radio for the tune up adjustments. the others would be for ssb or rx tx meter and squelch etc... just follow them thru the circuit ... all this can be done by a radio shop for less than $10 remember not to let or yourself cut out any of the circuit that will cause overmodulation. and its just wasted. looks good on a wattmeter but not on a oscilloscope .. and other on adjacent channels.. lol..

Full power with zero modulation

you possibly have a faulty microphone, if the amp is keyed to transmit and there is not audio to modulate. Try another mic

Have new dx959 doesnt get out very far talking 100yrds or so use rdking 56 mic mic works fine on old radio pc 78 and gets out fine also are 959 radios ok or junk has good reception

The DX959 has an output power setting knob. It's located next to the channel selector and is labeled RF Power. Turned counterclockwise will reduce output power. Turned clockwise will increase output power. Your switch is probably turned all the way counterclockwise resulting in low transmit volume.
Also, make sure the wiring for the RK59 is correct for the Galaxy. Even though it's a 4 pin plug, the pinouts may be different for the Uniden and Galaxy radios. Do a Google search for mic pinouts for your two radios to check.

I do not have enough audio on my dx 959 galaxy 40 channel radio

You can turn the modulation up by turning VR16 to the left.

This should give you some big audio.
