    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.(y)

    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.

    I did the mod with P5 and P6, 2 switches. Was easy to do and worked well. I took it out and intend to put a viagra b kit in. I do not like the mish-mash of channels scattered here and there with this switch this way and that switch that way, grab your partner swing her around oops, where'd she go, OH!, there's no channel there its back to channel 33. . .

    Does work, but does not get 40 up, and 40 down.
