Apply 8 volts to the rear pin of the connector to the right of IC4. I would use the talkback switch. I haven't seen a 29hp yet but I believe it uses the 6900 board used in most of the new Galaxys.

Galaxy 29hp no key up

You're probably savvy with radios so don't get mad if I ask you to check the PA Button. If the radio receives, it's obviously not that. Probably a bad final or a bad AM Regulator.

Fm adjustmet for the galaxy dx 29hp

Do you mean the FM Deviation or Detector Adjustment? I haven't found a schematic on the DX29HP yet but it may be the same as the DX33. NO GAURANTEE! The DX 33 has VR5 as the FM Deviation. You'll want to borrow or buy an FM Deviation Meter to adjust that. The FM Detector is L5. You'll need to Connect an AF VTVM or scope to IC2 Pin 7. In FM, Set FM RF Generator to 26.965 MHz (CB Channel 1) and at a level of .5uV deviated 3 KHz with 1KHz audio tone.
Reduce the volume as you need to. AGAIN!!! THE DX29HP MAY NOT BE ANYTHING LIKE THE DX33. If you are not sure, please pay someone to make the adjustments for you. It's a pretty nice little rig.

10k switch does not work

The on/off control is has a 10K vol control?

Switch and control can be tested with a ohm meter---switch will read open until switched to on (no power connected to unit) and control that is 10 K will read that from outer lugs on the control.

How do I add channels to the Galaxy DX 2547

you have to buy a switch at radio shack that will let you add channels I think its a # 275-1386A .Then the fun begins . Heres where to go to get the rest of the information so if I print one thing wrong you can't yell that I told you to do it. These are the correct directions @ look for galaxy 2547 and then look for freq conv and it all yours.

Hi, does anyone know how to connect an LED to replace the original meter lamp on a Galaxy DX 959?, or please refer me to a site where to find this information. Thank you so much. Osvaldo

LED are diodes that operate around 2volts DC. A resistor must be soldered in series with anode or cathod side of diode if connecting to 12 volts DC. Anode to ground....if unsure start with 10k resistor and check voltage and work your way down to around 1.8 volts is ideal

Galaxy DX959

it can not be tuned to go high or low you need to add switches for that and then realign the radio.

Galaxy DX 959

1. Remove bottom cover from radio. 2. On the main PCB, locate J33. (See diagram above) 3. Locate wires on pins marked "P5" (yellow) & "P6" (grey). 4. Cut wire on "P5" (yellow) and install a SPST switch in line. 5. Cut wire on "P6" (grey) and install a SPST switch in line. NOTE: By using two of the function switches available on the radio will eliminate the need for two new switches to be installed and mounted.

Dx959 galaxy

do you have any knobs or switches that say 10k or just switches on the side. It should also be on AM if the other person is on AM (this is not a 10m radio anymhz it only has AM, it is a legal CB Radio) Generally you should just be able to put it on AM and talk if your on the same channel. if its been modded and has switches a 10k switch or (high low norm) these may no be in the right place. if the clarifier is unlocked that may also cause a problem, it needs to be on with the switches and knobs in the right place.

good luck! play with the switches, with someone else who has a radio.
