I just put a couple of Molex ends on an AC cord and shrink wrapped em for the AC input. Don't know if it works yet as the fuse in blown. pig tail 3A type, tracking it down.
There were some wires out the back for DC already put in and worked in that mode. Just trying to make sure it was as intended.

I've been using one from a Canon printer. I think the printer was a M3600G. I don't recall the exact model number since it went to electronics recycling last summer after taking a short flight across the room.
The end that I'm plugging into the radio looks like an IEC-60320-C7, AKA the PH-2464P, or the CR45-822. Sometimes called the "figure 8 plug."
I posted this about the power pinout in another thread:
