    Truck stops love these things. Every one I visited today was out. o_O

    They all had the classic model but not the fancy pants version.

    If they're out, just order a 980 and a 203.

    These radios I think are the ones only sold to foreigners. They are the ones affix five or six suction cup device holders to the windshield. At least one large enough to hold a tablet so as to watch Bollywood classics going down the highway (this is not a joke). Many, many cables grow from the dashboard area.

    Clothing is standard baggy underwear, shiny version. White socks with at least one foot on the dash at all times.

    The radio has a 12’ chromed hard cable. Can’t miss it.

    I know you will make Pajeet proud. He will hear the characteristic squeal of that brand and know one of his countrymen is set to make a pronouncement. He sits up straight with anticipation.

    I’ve thought it a Uniden 78 with another name.

    I’ve only given away Cobras received in trade, never bought one, but I kept the Unidens.

    My first was a Philippines Uniden PC-76 I had Clays Radio Shop hotrod for me 22-years ago (dual final conversion plus a full alignment). Never nothing but compliments.

    Get a chromed case for that RK. Not as corny as it sounds.
    Really works with that faceplate. Folks do a double-take thinking it’s something they’ve never seen. Ck Bobs CB, Raneys Truck Parts, Iowa 80, and Empire Chrome Shop for that item plus Chrome Mount bracket and the screws.

    Then a case for mike. SS weave for cord. Wilson makes a Chrome case speaker (add WM or BHI DSP unit separately). EASTWOOD makes Chrome aerosol paint worth purchasing to hit the KL-203.

    Even if you “don’t like” Chrome, it’ll make a helluva centerpiece on the bench.
