I am new to the CB world, and especially SSB, but all I have to say is WOW !! I love the radio. At first I was skeptical that the blue backlighting was going to be too bright at night with the dimmer all the way down, but in-fact at it's lowest, the dimer knob will completely turn off the backlighting (even the LCD read-out unfortunately). I have been listening a lot more than talking (on both AM & SB) and the Automatic antenna tuner that is built into this radio is excellent! I really only use the radio for off-roading, but do enjoy talking to other drivers on my way to and from the trails. Installation was a snap, set-up was very easy, and this radio will be getting used for quite some-time. I've had a Cobra 29LTD BT that was nice, but not as compact as the Galaxy DX-979. I live on the west coast and can listen to DX on the east coast and the gulf of Mexico quite often, as well as Canada, and Australia on SSB CH38.
awesome cb radio! lots of features at a great price!!! I was looking for a good cb radio with all the latest feature at a price that was affordable and I found it in the Galaxy DX-979 CB Radio.I would highly recommend this radio for any one looking for a great looking radio the has all the features that some of the more expensive radio's have at a really good price!
Great CB radio. Very clear sounding. When I had it tuned at a cb shop, They told me they can't keep them on the shelves. They sell more of the 949 Galaxy cb radio's then any other and so far they have not had any returned for repair. Thats what I wanted to hear.
Just got it, hooked it up and it rocks. I wanted something for my camper that had SSB and this is compact enough to fit and has all the bells and whistles!! Great job GALAXY!!
FANTASTIC! LOADED WITH FEATURES. I SHALL BE GLAD TO DO BUSINESS WITH THE SELLER IN THE FUTURE. AS A MATTER FACT, I HAVE MADE ADDITIONAL PURCHASES FROM THE SELLER SINCE MY INITIAL PURCHASE.
