Thumbs up galaxy 95T Review


Anyone else own this radio? if you are considering buying one buy it great radio.
Pros-
Good power very solid 150 watts untouched.
good audio, ive gotten great reports in DX and with the locals. using a rk56
THE STARLIGHT faceplate is absolutely the coolest feature ive ever seen on a radio i never had a nightwatch cobra but it really makes it easy at night when driving if you have to make any adjustments or when your at a spot operating at night makes it great.
Cons- SSB this thing hates the cold and takes a while to warm up but after its done warming up it pretty much stays on frequency.
otherwise i cant say anything else bad about this radio.
hope this helps anyone whos considering one to buy one.
-Bigred

Mine works great! Been using it lately. 10 to 30 watts dk 180 watts pep AM. 100 watts SSB. Does take afew mins to warm up but then its stable. They do need a fan if long winded. I use mine one the base I even get great reports on SSB. Ive heard it on some gates and it sounds great. But GLR is like mikey. He hates everything lol.

Problems:

1. $400+ purchase price.

2. Echo on a radio advertised mostly for supertrucker SSB use. To make it even better there are no external echo controls other than on/off.

3. RF gain control?

4. Starlight faceplate, pretty but horribly expensive to repair and not that reliable.

5. Hot. Just runs hot.

6. GNF. uh huh.

Buy a real radio and a real amp.

His Money to spend

The OFF is the best option, but Hey some guys like noise toys

3. RF gain control?


Switchable 40Db pad on the front face

4. Starlight faceplate, pretty but horribly expensive to repair and not that reliable.

Not going to argue with that.

5. Hot. Just runs hot.
Put a fan on the radio.....put a fan on the Amp one or the other.

6. GNF. uh huh.

That`s the way, uh huh uh huh some like it uh huh uh huh

Buy a real radio and a real amp.


Not saying that it is not a real radio, that is what you or I would do, but hey, I refer back to number one, some guys just do not want an external amp.......They might figure that a all in one radio is a bit easier than a radio and an amp and the power cables and the coax and the shop foreman giving him grief about alllllll that in "His " new company Peterbuilt.
some places say NO AMPS.
Might get away with a all in one radio.

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.

I have been hearing more and more drivers saying just that. The trucking companies won't allow ANY added on amplifiers. So, if that's the position you are in, a high powered rig is the only way.

Even though Galaxy's are not my fav's, I still like the 93T, but never can find one for sale.
