That sounds like a heck of a deal. You better give in ! I gave in to the hip on the PC 122 being it was NOS & Philippines. Misery loves company !! LOLI'm feeling in the same boat 148 gtl side mike is still in the box the guy is asking $75.00 he must not know the value but I'm still thinking yes or no I see it as a want and not a need but again re-sell it and make profit
That's why I couldn't resist buying it. I've heard nothing but good about that radio on sideband , it's a older radio, and it's a Phillipines made. I've been keeping my eyes open for one to surface. Now I just pray it is really NOS. If it is I just might Fix that aggravating McKinley with my BFH ! LOL !I run a Phillipines 122 daily in my mobile. Excellent radio.
Until 1978 or so, Universal Denshi Corporation built radios in Japan. Moved to Taiwan until 1989. Moved to the Philippines. Stayed there through the 90s and all their production I know about the last 18 or so years has been in China.All of the Uniden radios were manufactured in the Philippines.
Cobra didn't so much go country-hopping as they did country-following. They hire an offshore manufacturing vendor who puts their name badge on the radios they build. Cobra has sold radios made in Thailand in the 1980s, Malaysia in the early-to-mid 90s. The 148 came out of Singapore for a year or so. Cobra doesn't make radios. They import, market and sell them. The low bidder makes the radios.They didn't go country hopping like Cobra did.
Thanks for the info, from what I gather my NOS PC 122 was made in the 90s so it will hopefully last as long as I will unless I get stupid and blow it up. I'll handle it with tender loving care.

You can find the service manual on the cb tricks web site. You can use the one for the Realsitic TRC-453 or TRC-465 as they share the same chassis.Was wondering does anyone have a PDF file of the service manual for the Uniden PC- 122 they would share with me. Thanks if you do. First thing I might do is lower the dead key and turn up the modulation. Of coarse after I check it out as stock.
OK but it's setting on my bench and I have to rearrange and de-clutter to get a pic. Have too many radios and not enough time to play with every one of them. It's hard being a responsible old guy when all you want to do is play with your toys ! LOLWell let's see it! We want to see the beast you speak of....
