The Galaxy line of radios date back to the 80's when CB radio manufacturers were a dime a dozen, as a result a majority of Galaxy radios have passed the test of time where many others have withered and died. This can only happen when a product lives up to the expectations of it's users.
The Galaxy DX 959 lives up to this reputation and happens to be one of Galaxy's most popular CB radios.
While single sideband ( USB / LSB ) are features CBer's in the know are looking for, it's not the only reason to check out this excellent radio. The large easy-to-read SWR / Power / Modulation meter allows the easiest and safest way to monitor your CB's performance. In fact, one of the best features this radio has to offer is an auto-calibrating SWR meter. That's right, you no longer have to calibrate the meter to check your SWR. This results in better monitoring of your antenna system's "health" and the overall performance of your system is guaranteed to maintain itself.
