I have never seen the Powerpole adapter but that seems like and elegant
solution. You could even use 6awg wire with that connector if you had a
longer power supply/battery cable.

Or use an APP 75A fitting with 8 AWG wire and the APP 75A-30A reducing
adapter (with or without the above-recommended pigtail) to the 30A-size
fitting on the transceiver (I do that for my K2/100).  The battery and
power-supply leads to my distribution system, however, are 4 AWG with
crimped lugs and stud mounts.
