DX 959 B

AM/SSB Mobile CB Radio


From Galaxy   " Today, I am happy to announce that our Research & Development Team has come
up with a Deluxe Edition of the DX959 - the DX959B. It is exactly the same
in circuitry, components and operation as the DX959. However, they have
changed the frequency LEDs, channel LEDs, RB LED and RX LED from green to
blue. In addition, they added a "StarLite" faceplate with all lettering
backlit in either blue or red. This does not replace the current DX959. The
old DX959 stays. We now have two versions of the 959."

  • Blue Frequency Display
  • Blue Channel Display
  • RB and RX LED's Blue
  • StarLite Faceplate (Glow-in-the-Dark red and blue lettering)
  • Large, easy-to-read meter with 4 scales:
    1. "S" Meter indicates up to 60 dB over S9
    2. Modulation Percentage Scale for use on AM
    3. Power Scale Calibrated for AM and SSB
    4. SWR Scale
  • Automatic SWR Circuit (no complicated calibration procedure)
  • "Talkback" Circuit with On/Off Switch and Volume Control
  • Variable Power Output Control
  • Roger Beep with On/Off switch and LED Indicator
  • Galaxy Noise Filter for use on weak signals
  • High SWR Alert LED Indicator
  • Two Year Warranty as explained below:
  • Five-digit Frequency Display
  • +/- 1.0 kHz Receive Clarifier
  • Noise Blanker and Automatic Noise Limiter
  • AM, SSB and PA Modes
  • 3-Position Tone Control Switch
  • Blue/Red LED Indicator for RX/TX
  • Blue LED Channel Indicator
  • Dimmer Control
  • Receive Gain Control
  • Mic Gain Control
  • The inverter that powers the blue lettering causes a faint high pitched noise to be heard in the receive signal. Galaxy has not come up with a fix for this.  It bothers some people a lot. If you think it might bother you, then you might want to get the regular DX-959 instead.


Please note, the StarLite lettering is always at full brightness because it
is not very intense - even in the dark. It is designed to let you know where
the controls are, but not be too bright. The back lighting may be turned off
using the Display Push switch but the brightness level is not affected by
the Dimmer pot. The StarLite lettering is always at full brightness when it
is on.

The blue digits of the frequency display and channel display can go from
very bright to very dim using our high resolution dimmer circuit. The Dimmer
control pot on the DX959B starts dimming almost immediately when you start
turning it down from maximum. On some radios, the dimming effect is not even
noticeable until you turn the pot a quarter or half turn. This one starts
dimming immediately and dims continuously down to where you can barely
notice the digits are on. This is perfect for night driving. You make the
digits exactly as bright as you like them. Of course, the digits can be shut
off completely with the Display Push switch.

CB Microphone Wiring (Galaxy)


Galaxy radios sometimes have a small scratch or ding that the factory covers with black touch up.  We cannot effect this and do not guarantee your radio to be cosmetically perfect.  Bells CB will make no marks or scratches on your radio ourselves.  Galaxy might though and I cannot control it.

Optional Accessories
 Tune-up. Perform a tune-up and a;lignment to the radio to increase power, audio and Performance $49
Perform Receiver improvement mods.
(These mods replace key RX parts for better sensitivity and selectivity)
 Install an CP-1 Top Gun Audio Compressor. (on - all the time) Is most noticed on SSB, This amplifies your lower level audio on transmit.
NOTE: It becomes difficult to use the Talkback even at low volume with this mod.
Galaxy DX-959 with RFX-95HDRFX-95 Final. Install a completely new final section consisting of a high power MOSFET and perform a tune-up to the entire radio to increase power, audio and performance with an AM carrier of 20 watts with 90+ watts peak power. $189
 Change factory power cord to a 10 Gauge Power Cord (14 foot) and modify the DC Jack for high amperage 2 Pin Quick connector. This is only helpful when you have the RFX-95HD2 and is NOT required for a stock radio

SO-239As many of you may know;  Ranger, Galaxy and General radios have all had some poor tolerance coax connectors this last year (SO-239 on the back of the radio) . You have to wiggle the coax just right to get a good grab on the threads of the connector. They are too far “out of tolerance” and we can no longer accept it.       So we have started changing the coax connectors ourselves to a much higher quality SO-239 that will fit your coax nice and tight.  This has affected our selling price ($10) but we think you will agree that it is worth it.
