This great portable radio has been giving me trouble-free service for almost 40 years.

It is a 3 Band (AM-FM-PSB) with a 2 way power supply (AC or DC Batteries)

It keeps cutting out when connected to AC but works great on the DC Batteries.

I suspect the AC Power Cord is the culprit as wiggling it temporarily corrects the problem.

The plug end has "Kawasaki KS-18" printed on it while the 2 connection female adapter end has imprinted "120v - 7a - 741-2566"

Can you point me to a possible source for a replacement cord?

Thanks for any advice!

...John

I have the same RF-1060.... works great.
That 4 inch speaker sounds awesome in such a small portable.
And I like that "filmstrip" style moving dial too.

For a cord, try radio shack... but there are suppliers all over the internet.

Not to be picky, but this Panasonic radio is not what was once known as a 3-way portable. the 3-ways were; AC power line operation, DC power line operation and battery operation.
If you could find DC power line service to plug your radio into, it's tiny power transformer would be instant toast.

I don't recall anybody saying the RF-1060 was a 3-way powered set.

JMB said "3-Way" in the title but he probably meant 3-band as he said in his post.
