    Trying to ID/find the 2-pin power connector that fits the Kenwood DG-5 display and TS-520. Tnx

    This may sound silly, but try a CB radio shop, or eBay. That connector looks very much like the fairly common 2-pin power connectors used with many CB radios back in the '70s. If you'll remind me via email -- I'm good on QRZ -- I'll check my junk box and see if I have one. I probably do.

    Make sure you observe the correct polarity, because there wasn't a definite standard. I've seen them wired both ways.

    Thanks! I have a temporary solution: used 2 female contacts extracted from a Molex connector and shrink tubed. But I'd rather have the right connector.
