Default galaxy dx 95t / ranger rci 2970 dx

ive been thinking about 2 radios with a view of purchasing one the galaxy dx 95 t are there any operators using this radio is it possible to turn the echo of completely as im no fan of echo especially while talking on ssb the radio also if any operators can give me a report on the radio as coverage it seems to have 8 sets of 40 A-H with 40 on each set also power as ive heard different versions of the true output power on am and ssb ive priced this radio at maycom in stevensville michigan at $388.00 which is a lot cheaper than some radio shops the second radio is the ranger rci 2970 dx i already run a 2950 dx and like the scan facility and overall use no complaints about this radio which i purchased from copper last year one thing it lacks power with only 25 watts on ssb i need to use a foot kicker to speak across the pond stateside on 11 metres when we eventually get some conditions the ranger 2970 at maycom is over $420.00 retail before the conversion which will be another $30.00 so all in $450.00 which is far to high to pay copper has a good price on this radio of $359.00 before conversion which is far more realistic price so im swaying to the galaxy if any operators would be able to give some advice on choice and if the echo can be switched of perminant many thanks wj 450 29 division

I must have got a good galaxy. After the inital warm up it has no noticable drift. Yes Skip, the echo on the 95T can be turned completely off. My locals around here cant tell the difference between my 95T and my DX-70 on SSB. Never been around a 2970 so I cant comment on them besides saying they will also drift during the initial warmup.

Almost all radio`s require time to stablize when first turned on. If you look in most service manuals they will tell you to turn on the rig and allow it to run for a fixxed amount of time before doing an alignment on the RX/TX.


When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown,
The dream is gone.
but I have become comfortably numb.
