Pin 3 which Kenwood confusingly labels "Standby".   It's just a normal 
ground-to-key PTT line.  

Note that on the D700 the connections on this jack follow the "selected" 
band for the mic.  I.E.  if the mic is keying the left side of the 
radio, the mini-DIN6 lines are also connected to the left. If the mic is 
keying the right side of the radio, the mini-DIN6 is also connected to 
the right. 

Full details on the miniDIN6 "PS/2" packet or data connector, including 
an enlarged diagram useful as a wiring worksheet,  are in this file on 
my website:

Look for the file     MiniDIN6-Packet.pdf
