It’s okay to want it all. That’s why Galaxy designed the DX 959. It’s for the CBer that insists on having a rig that’s literally out of this world. Top notch features include an end-of-transmission roger beep, variable output power, RF gain, PA, high-SWR alert, mic gain, clarifier control (delta tune), talk back, automatic SWR calibration for simpler antenna tuning and, of course, long-range SSB operations. Good news if you plan on doing some stargazing: the easy-to-read meter is even illuminated for evening rides. To see how the DX 959 compares to other Galaxy radios, see our Galaxy Feature Comparison Chart.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Galaxy requires customers to ship all radios needing repair or warranty work directly to the manufacturer (Galaxy) after purchase. This includes radios that arrive defective. Due to this policy, we are unable to accept returns on Galaxy radios.

Good radio!!

Been using the dx 959 for a month or so no issue other drivers say can hear me extremely well

Tarquin W.
Additional Radio to my first Dx 959

I use the first on in my Jeep JK for 9 years. Added one to my New Jeep Gladiator. I use a 102 whip antenna. The reception and transmission is crisp and clear. I hunt the Oregon Cascade on the West Side. I am able to transmit and receive on the AM side very good. The SSB side, never fails! I get up on a ridge and transmit and receive into the canyons well in dense wooded areas. Fun to play with. Easy to use.

Awesome Radio!

I was using a 30 year old Midland that I still love but I now realize it's limitations. The galaxy 959 is a amazing unit. I have way more range with this radio and it is everything it is purported to be and more. Don't think twice about buying a 959, just do it. I promise you won't regret it!

Works well

Galaxy radios are traditionally more powerful radios. These radios are cut back to only 80% modulation. With the lack of CB radios on the market and properly installed units you cannot accurately get a good reception or transmission report due to the fact that other people have crappy radios and their radios sound like garbage. You don't get the responses that you used to get reporting how far or how clear signals are so you have to only go on what you think you here.
