      The side jack is VERY "picky" as far as the voltage is concerened. There is a comparator in the input circuit that monitors the voltage, and if it is anything but 6V, + or - a couple of hundred milivolts, it will shut down the radio and give an error message. So to answer your question, a 5 Volt input just won't cut it.

      I've run mine off a DC-DC converter, worked fine when set to either 5V or 6V.  YMMV.
