6 Digit Frequency Display
The DX979F is exactly like the current DX979 except it has a built-in five digit frequency counter using large blue LEDs instead of a jack in the back for the external FC347.
The newest Galaxy DX979 AM/SSB CB radio is smaller and has the StarLite faceplate feature which is a very nice lighting system to show the locations of the knobs in low light conditions. Very useful when you are driving at night since you can easily see everything you needed to make adjustments to the radio. Factory Talkback, Variable Power, Large Meter, and Auto Calibrating SWR are the major features.
The Galaxy DX979 has all the features of the DX959, except for the 5 Digit Frequency counter and Roger Beep. Like the DX949 & DX959, the DX979 can transmit the three types of signals (AM, USB, LSB) presently used for communications in the CB (Citizens Band) radio. The DX-979 may not have a Frequency counter, but it does come Pre-wired for the External 6 digit FC 347 Frequency Counter, which is more useful for the SSB (Single Side Band).
CB Radio Magazine says "there are lots of fun mods for this radio. You can add extra channels, a roger beep just by adding a jumper between two points (see the instructions on the Ranger 696 FD-1 Review for similar instructions), and you can also unlock the clarifier (instructions on CBtricks.com)."
