General 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.  General radio might though and I cannot control it. 

 

 

CB Microphone Wiring (Galaxy)

 

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.

 

The item most overlooked when ordering a custom radio is the microphone.  Your new radio will NOT sound great with a stock mic on it even if you have it tuned.  If your CB is more than a tool for work, you NEED to upgrade your microphone. 
My personal favorites are the
Astatic 636L and RD104E.
