also some extra...Ham International Jumbo - Mains Hum noticeable on FM and SSB garbling. Check the mains transformer. The original may have been removed and an "un-shielded" one fitted. The original ones windings are encased with a steel shell.
Off frequency - Wont adjust via little trimmers. Replace them with red ones from scrap CB's or new ones. This can also affect the KC shift causing radio to stop transmitting when KC fully clockwise. If it wont trim bang on frequency try a different crystal.
Crystals used - LL = 9.8275MHz, L = 9.940MHz, M = 10.0525MHz, H = 10.165MHz, HH = 10.2775MHz
judging by the crystal list itl go low low.so 2 blocks below mid.
bye bye
so does that take it down to 26.065 ch 1 as its lowest channel..? i think so!
ta da.. :roll:

ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT REPLACING IT WITH A MOBILE OR HOMEBASE SSB SET?

WELL IF YOU WANT A RETRO SSB BASE STATION GO FOR SOMETHING UNIDEN BOARDED LIKE A STALKER XX (20) OR SOMETHING SIMILAR, AS FOR THE GALAXY 95T2 I SUGGEST YOU CONTACT 26 TM 024 AS I THINK HE HAD SOME ISSUES REGARDING THE POWER CONTROLS ON THAT RADIO.

I have a Hygain V as my homebase set!
As for the Jumbo being nasty: Nothing incurable about it! If you want I'll swap my Superstar 360FM for it. :)
