Just ordered myself a new Galaxy 2517 first new base station I've ever bought. Was very pleased with Coppers work this radio is beyond awesome. Very loud and clear on my Jo Gunn 5 Star Beams you cant go wrong with this radio, 73's and thanks a lot Copper Electronics, "22 Smoky Hills Tennessee"
Bought this radio after selling my RCI2995 because the 2517 had echo, talk back, and could use with my accessories I already have. Super modulation, once tuned, and performs well according to reports. Beware of any electrical storms though. Had a small storm about 10 miles from me knock out a final. Buy spare IRF520's. Cheap and pretty simple to replace yourself.
Getting ready to order me another on. I am gonna have them do all the expand align and tune it all for me.I had a c.b man to have it done but it stops the warranty but I had a great radio.their was one little problem with it when I got it the mod chip wasn't making good contact but I fixed it. That why I am going to have coppers do it for me. BUT for a plain 10w radio its one of the best and i'll be getting one soon net week.I am the spider Staion # 405 west virginia.

Amazing radio I have had mine 8 years still works amazing I run it with a 5/8 aluminum ground plane antenna 60 feet in the air I talk to UK and Ireland and France with no prob I am always told I have a clean sounding loud radio works great on sideband too I am running a D104 road devil to give it that extra kick for side band I definately recommend this radio to anyone that wants to do some serious talking without breaking the bank.
