Ok, I have to admit that even though I am a ham radio operator, Galaxy really DOES make some kick ass radio gear. And although I prefer to stay away from the Amateur radios that they try to pass off as CB’s, they are pretty amazing nonetheless. The Galaxy 99 CB radio falls into the kick your teeth down your throat and be channel master category pretty comfortably.
The Galaxy 99 is an Amateur Radio that works from 28.000 to 29.700 MHZ 10M band. it is made for HAM RADIO USE! That being said, with a simple modification it can and WILL transmit/receive on the 27MHZ CB band. Just remember that it is illegal to transmit on the CB bands with this radio!
