That linear will be good for 100 watts of clean power. It has two MRF455 transistor which are 60 watts a piece. The cb will drive it with the carrier or dead key reduced to about 1.5 to 2 watts but i suggest that you read the linear's power while adjusting dead key not exceeding the 100 watts pep with voice. An NPC mod would be a good addition to get the modulation up with a low dead key.

Before you start the projection make sure you antenna system is in good condition high SWR will smake you linear in a hurry.

In factory condition 949 galaxy with a 3.8 carrier it will drive a 667v TexasStar. It is a low drive linear that will end all disputes as to who has more power. 8 out of 10 birds that escape will die of cancer withiin 72 hrs. Ok could not help myself. I would not suggest that unless you just want to damage other peoples receive. The v is for variable power. Hope this was of help.

The antenna system is far better in your home base setup. All things being equal the earth ground will far improve your reception.

My radio squeals with echo when my amps on


adjust your talkback to just open then set your echo to where you want it. Now turn your amp on and re-adjust both the talkback and the echo . If you have a speaker nearby the radio may be feeding back through it so move it away from your radio . Now start talking with the mic and adjust your echo because you should be able to hear yourself talk through your talkback.

Have you tried turning the mic gain up,and not knowing Texas star model numbers,is it a mobile linear,if so,do you have a sufficient power supply?Just some thoughts off top of my head.

It powers up....no modulation ...output power..or receive....just static...galaxy dx 949...


Sounds like the PLL may be toast. Either that, or someone has **** with the wrong potentiometers or tuning slugs in the radio, causing to to no longer resonate on the correct freqs.
