  • Switch to turn off the frequency digits
  • Variable Talkback circuit with on/off switch

  • Local testing shows 24 amps on AM and 45.6A max on SSB (22.4A on min power)
  • 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.
