If these are stations that you have to before and had no problem hearing them then you are correct to say your receive is low. There are adjustments that can be made you check for low receive but you need the manual for the radio. If you go to www.cbtricks.com and look for the radio they also have the service manual.

what kind of radio .Your radio may or may not have a reverse polarity diode. If it has one then change it and you radio should get power. It could also be the final the driver or both. If it is ,one or the other change them both .I just went out today to buy a final and driver and the cost was about $12 so I would check that diode first.

RF Meter

I'm not sure that is what you want to do. It seems like you are really asking to improve you receive or sensitize it. That may require some specialized equipment and if your thinking of giving it a go you might not like the end results.

why take out the meter light? check out your diode first . there are several diodes in the front end that operate the light and several other lights .Check to make sure they are in proper working order.. Follow the wires out of the meter to the board then make sure by moving them that you light is indeed out. Then take the bulb out of the meter , go to radio shack and p/u one just like it . there is no pos or neg so just install it where you undid the wires to the board then put it back into the meter.

are you talking about the variable rf knob or do you not have rf power output? check it to a radio next to you with no antenna on the checking radio. and see if it will move the meter.. if it does they change the rf final transistor..

Does the meter work otherwise? If so I would suspect a bad pot.

Maybe the stations you are listenning happend to be located quite a distance away. Or your antenna may not match properly. Or the signal indicator may be faulty if the modulation sounds like he is transmitting right next door.

Galaxy Radios... | Answered on Jun 14, 2013

sounds like your receive is off frequency. Try tuning it in with the clarifier. If you can tune it in better then you need to align the receive.
