I don't have one, but I did a search and found a page at
www.universal-radio.com/CATALOG/hamps/4273.html
that indicates that "this power supply input may be converted to
220 VAC input via an internal jumper cable." You might want to wait
for a confirmation from somewhere else, but at a glance, it sounds like
you have found the jumper.
