    Galaxy Dx 949 is just jam-packed with features. This radio has more bells and whistles than most other CB's on the market for the price new in the boxes, but more importantly, the features are all very useful.; It's no wonder the Galaxy Dx 949 has been one of the best selling radios ever for Galaxy and hopefully they'll continue to produce radios like this one that really have all of the features that a 21st century CBer demands.
