DX 86V
AM 10 Meter AM/SSB Radio


Download Manual  

The last new model from Galaxy is an AM/SSB model built for simplicity, the DX86V:

1) Same chassis as the new DX55F and DX66V2 - mid size, front mic with frequency counter but with added SSB.

2) Fine/coarse clarifier, automatic SWR circuit with SWR alert LED.

3) No Echo, no +10KHz switch, no PA, no FM, no Roger Beep.

Because Galaxy was limited on space with the small size, this has way less features than the DX99V2, however, the performance is exactly the same.

This radio is very simple to understand and use.

This is one of those radios that SSB frequency accuracy drifts with temperature changes. We cannot change this, it has been that way with these radios for many years. If you can't live with it, don't buy this radio. Thank you.




Galaxy radios sometimes have a small scratch or ding that the factory covers with 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 radio might though and I cannot control 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.
