Hi roger777 and welcome to the forum,
In my opinion between the 2 radios I would choose the Texas Ranger TR-696FD1 over the Galaxy 959. They are basically the same radio but the TR has 1 more digit on it's freq counter. The only mods I would do is up the modulation, lower the dead key to give the finals some breathing room and unlock the clarifier ( have the frequency checked to make sure it is on the money). The lower dead key will also help your amp live longer.
