This is a very unusual connector, so before you suggest a universal adapter you can save the typing time, because there is none.

I have tried auction sites, and web searches, with no desirable results.

Any thoughts as to where I can find one before I have to re-wire the unit with a new power jack?

You might also look for AOR-2002 parts as well as I think they are the same unit. I will check my junk box as I used to have a few 5000s but I doubt I have the wall wart anymore.

MX5000 power connector

A couple of possibilities

1- These were made by AOR. I believe that the 2002, 2515, 3000, 3000A and some others used the same connector.

2- Some of the early Hayes modems used the same connector (think 1200-2400 baud). I have cut the pigtail off (xformer was AC output) and used them.....

3- It is pretty easy to unbolt the power connector on the radio and just install a standard coaxial conn on a small piece of aluminum and bolt it in the hole.

I have done all three over the years, good luck

I seem to remember g&g communications having them in stock. Shoot them an email and check.

2002 and 2515 for sure had the same connector.

You can just make your own easily. I've done that with laptops before. Clipped the correct polarity wires to the proper prongs and just shimmed some pieces of electrical tape and plastic between them to keep them isolated from each other so they don't short.
