Default Galaxy DX 88HL no transmit? need help!!


I have a 1999 galaxy 88 hl, and the power wire came loose from the knob fried the strip on board from behind the s meter to almost the middle of the board down the left side of the radio. I fixed that now, it powers up, but wont transmit, when keyed up the needle moves to correct dead key on low and high power, RX, TX light changes but no sound is transmitted! Anyone have any ideas of what might help solve this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The audio chip; but that is a guess . . .

Default Audio chip?

Can you specify?, just started working on my own stuff, still a worm! I would also like to find out where I can get a new freq. counter board. I got new leds for freq counter and channel display got the channel dis. changed out, but would rather start fresh with new board on freq. counter, some of the wire need to be resoldered any ways!

Yep. The worm thing. I used to work the patch in Louisiana and Mississippi years ago.

I favor the 88 over all the galaxies, except, perhaps, the Pluto.

Default No Answers?

Man..... I bet if I took my 3300 HP and stuck in my pick-up, and ask for some help, I would probably have about 100 to 150 professional cb techs/steering wheel holders fighting over who could give me the right answer!
