You're probably better off snipping the yellow and gray wires the go to the channel selector (P5 and P6) and putting SPST switches inline with each wire than using a kit...those kits for the Galaxy 9xx series radios use crystals, and they can be difficult to line up.

Just my two cents worth, but if you're still wanting a kit, go to Ebay and type in "viagra kit for galaxy" in the search box, or go where the previous poster suggested, that should put you in the right direction.

If you want extra channels cut the yellow and gray wires and put the switches in line and you will be all set. The freq counter follows along.

The p5 p6 mod works well on that radio. Only down side is having 2 switches sticking out of the case.

I put my switches on the back of the radio. Easy access and out of sight.

Yes, but the P5/P6 mod is way more stable than a channel kit and much easier to align afterward.
