If you check out the OTHER items from the lister who shows the item below, he has similar terminal block breakout boards available on eBay.  One of those would make an ideal device for that described by R Norris (rkmr15203@...) below.

of the 13.8V output to power the interface.

I believe that to use this socket as a PTT on all bands I have to set 
"VSEND Select" to "Off" and use pin 3 to transmit.

An I correct or what should I be doing?

When I do a new radio, I take all pinouts from any socket out to terminal strips, on the back of the desk.

Maybe I will never use some, but they are ready and I never have to move the radio or take the &*%$# Din plug apart again.
