I'm trying to locate a DC Plug and lead for this Txr in the UK.
The socket has 6 pins and I could be a Molex. Can anyone advise?
NO, it is NOT a Molex connector. It is a Nylon DC connector mfg. in Eastern Asia for
the Japanese "Big 3" amateur radio mfg. (Icom, Kenwood, Yaesu).
Molex, Tyco/Amp, and Cinch are three major connector mfg. in USA. Two are HQ here in Chicago.
The DC power connector you require is very COMMON (in amateur radio usage) from 1980s till recently. Your LOCAL Amateur Radio retail store STOCK this connector and DC power cable sets.
Go introduce yourself, meet some new people !
In the United Kingdom, you have well known Amateur Radio dealers that have these in stock.
You can walk-in (retail) or order via telephone.

I was just given an ICOM 735 by the family of a SK. It is also missing the 13.8V cable and connector. It uses the same one as the 730. If I find anything I will post it here.
OFF-THE-SHELF, Powerwerx (California, USA) always has in stock, bare connector or cable set.http://www.powerwerx.com/oem-connectors/
