AM/SSB Mobile Radio
I am announcing
two new CB models. Both are in our mid-sized chassis. The
same chassis as our DX929 and DX979, but with a full size five
digit blue LED frequency counter built in. It is 7.25 inches wide
and fits into any slot that a Cobra 29 would fit into. The same
size blue frequency and channel LED digits as our full size
radios but these digits are in a new SMT package containing all
five digits. They actually look better than any of the previous
models we have. Look closely at the frequency digits in the
pictures. All previous models use five separate digits for the
frequency counter. Both models have a front mic jack and the
Galaxy StarLite (backlit) faceplate.
Features are as
follows: A) The DX979F is exactly like the current DX979
except it has a built-in five digit frequency counter using large
blue LEDs instead of a jack in the back for the external FC347. Following is the description
for the DX979F:
Galaxy CB radios are designed with Features that a serious
CB operator can appreciate and a new user can easily master.
The radio functions are laid out in a driver friendly format
essential for ease of use while keeping your eyes focused on
the road ahead. Each knob or button controls its own task,
minimizing the need to look at a display or cycle through
multiple menus. Big radio Features in a smaller package set
the DX-979F apart from the crowd. A big calibrated meter,
front mic jack and sideband operation along with our backlit
faceplate give this radio maximum bang for the buck.
Galaxy DX-979F Features include:
AM/SSB and PA Modes.
Large, easy-to-read meter with: power output scale
calibrated for AM and SSB.
Modulation percentage scale for use on AM.
Incoming signal strength scale indicates up to 60 dB

Automatic SWR circuit (no complicated calibration
High SWR alert circuit with warning LED.
Talkback circuit with on/off switch and volume control.

The item most
overlooked when ordering a custom radio is the microphone.
Your new tuned radio will NOT sound great with a
stock mic on it If your CB is more than a tool for work,
you NEED to upgrade your microphone. My personal
favorites are the
