I use it on my stock radio, a cobra29 and everyone says I'm clearer and more understandable on the air. Lot's of trucker use it on stock CB's , it should be fine. I think the ceramic disk in it helps with the background noise. Let us know how you like it when it comes in.

Best wishes

I started with a Radio Shack years ago. Went to the larger Cobra models and enjoyed the "tune-ability," better speaker and noise blanking features back then. With new vehicles and limited space, went with the Unidens/Midlands. Eventually made the step to Galaxy and will never go back. Like said a few posts back, don't repair, cheep enough to replace. Put 5 or 10 in a coffee can every payday(now I'm showing my age) and get a new one every year till you find the right one for you..

Galaxy does make a good sounding radio if you only use AM. I use SSB alot around here and the Galaxy's drift so much that they are useless.

Lets say I'm on CH40 which is 27.405 mhz. My 959 will drift from 27.403 to 27.407 rendering it useless on SSB.

That drift wont cause trouble on AM and I would definatly choose a Galaxy over a newer Cobra if AM only.

I'm currantly running a mid 90's Cobra 148F thats rock solid on SSB once it warms up. My 959 won't ever get stable no matter how long you leave it on but the 959 is a screamer on AM.
