That's probably a CB claim. i.e. 200 watts PEP, which means it can do probably 100 watts on sideband.

If it can do 200 watts on side band, then it probably has 2 2sc2879 final RF output transistors in it. Like the RCI-2970 uses 2sc2290.

Either way, if you like the rig. Buy it. Most of them are all the same boards, different looks. Custom features. And different power amps mounted to the bottom panel.

Go take a look on www.cbtricks.com
On the front page just click on radio information then G for Galaxy. Theres 7 pages full of photographs of the inside and out of it, looks like a winner to me with that power.
And yes it will do 200w.
How far is it.
Twice it's length from halfway.

The board looks to me the same as the 2517, 95t, etc. Should be a nice radio.. 8)

I'm looking to buy a New CB i have about $500 to spend on a rig. so i was thinking of going with a Galaxy DX98VHP but someone said the receiver isn't that great so i started looking again and i found an RCI-6900F-150 which is supposed to have a far superior receive anyone have any other suggestions to a CB that they think is good and that i should consider?

no way can it do 350 on sbb no matter what you tune more like 35 watt
you will always miss the shot you don't take.
