Looks good to me Hugo.

Like Sam says, looks good and sturdy just like they used to make them.

I’ve read a few reports of people acquiring these rigs lately and all appears to be good. Will be interesting to hear your thoughts after some use.

Have fun.

Mike :cheers:

PS. One reviewer did say he only bought it because of the pretty meter :clap:

Hi all :wave:

Sam, im well. Busy summer, not done much radio unfortunately. Hope you are well.

Radio seems to be good. Needs a proper test. I tried it out at the previous owners house on my mobile setup but unfortunately there was nobody about to give a report. Seemed to check out on my meter but ill have to take it up a local hill soon to get some reports.

Good to hear some good reports on it. Should be good for 50w fm and 150 ssb but ill run it a bit lower I think to preserve it.

I look forward to taking it out, maybe this week or next up the south shropshire hills. Ill have to get some pictures and video for sure.

Oh and p.s. One of the main reasons to buying it was that meter :D

Well finally got a chance to test out the Galaxy. Stuck it on the dash while I drove around this week for work and a trip home. Seems to get out well with good audio reports. The Astatic 636L with it atm might be upgraded to a power mic instead to get some bass into the audio which is apparently a little sharp. Not bad for DX tho!
Apparently its all on frequency. Only thing I feel is that the receive is a little weak. Not sure if thats an issue with these Galaxy type radios. I just feel like my usual alinco picks up stations a little better, but we shall see. Im getting it checked over by my local mate/rig doc this week.

But yeah, really happy. Looking forward to finding it its own home in a truck im restoring in the future. There will be pictures of that when its all complete :D

Well I dropped the radio off to my mate last week who has done a top notch tune up as usual. It was running a bit weak on the receive and we think that when it was unlocked by the previous owner for 11m, a few pots were turned up to increase the audio. Thats all been sorted now and is now sounding great :D

Just need to find a nice microphone for it now. Might use the original or a power mic with the audio tuned down.
