FexRadio hardware reference manual page 25: 5VDC out on PIN 9. No 12V, unless you get it from
the 12V line itself, which I wouldn't recommend. I always power transverters, TNC's and other
accessories from a separate power source to avoid loops.

If it's just constant source 12v I would get something like a RigRunner and wire it up separately.
