The Tinytrak3 senses the PTT in line from the microphone via D5 and
pin 11 (RB5). When the line goes from low to high, it knows that the
operator has just released the PTT button, so it outputs a high on pin
1 (RA2), turning on Q1, and pulls down the PTT line again, so it can add
it's (TT3) data burst on the end of the over. (Mic-E PTT action, as
opposed to a Mic-E compressed packet.)
D6 is there to stop it retriggering itself.
