Galaxy radios sometimes have a small scratch or ding that the factory covers with black touch up.  We cannot effect this and do not guarantee your radio to be cosmetically perfect.  Bells CB will make no marks or scratches on your radio ourselves.  Galaxy radio might though and I cannot control it.

 music at very low volume so you can talk over it.)


 Install bright LED lighting behind the 2 meters. I like white the best and is the only color I guarantee you will see bright and nice. Other colors are pretty but not as easy to read the meter if your getting up there in age. :o) $26

 Add a Small External Speaker
(plugs into back of the radio for improved sound)

 Add a Large External Speaker

FULL 10 Meter band coverage for higher class operators.
New frequency range will be 26.965 to 29.655
This will allow it to cover almost the complete 10 meter range and still keep the 11 meter CB band. This mod is helpful to General, Advanced and Extra class licensees.  Not needed by everyone.  It will lose all bands below CB radio. CB Radio is Band A














The item most overlooked when ordering a custom radio is the microphone.  Your new tuned radio will NOT sound great with a stock mic on it  If your CB is more than a tool for work, you NEED to upgrade your microphone.  My personal favorites are the Astatic 636L and RD104E.


If you place an order from outside the continental USA, we will calculate your actual shipping and send you a PayPal payment request.  We do NOT export Base stations or  Antennas.
