    Greetings!

    Just got a used PS-30 which works great! I want to plug in my Yaesu tuner to one of the 2-pin plugs on the rear, but none came with the power supply. I can't match anything visually. Anyone have a source for these or know an equivalent at mouser or digikey or another online place.?

    Two-Pin Molex connectors.

    Do you know a model number. I checked every one at my local electronics store and none matched up that unique pattern of that connector.

    There is some contact information here, https://forums.qrz.com/index.php?threads/icom-ic-ps30.486611/

    If needed you could just use the standard female pins without the housing. May not be the best idea but can work.

    If I can't find a match, I'll probably just measure the hole and replace the chassis side connector with a more modern and readily available one. Thanks for the info! I guess one of the downsides to getting stuff decades old is parts availability.

    I am sure it is available. You may need to measure it to find the one that you need.

    It looks like the ones used for RC models. A hobby shop may have them.

    Good Luck. Old is better than new. :)

    Close, but it is not a MOLEX connector. It is a Japanese connector that is required, which is why there is no MOLEX that fits. Hopefully, Yaesu will supply the correct connector.
