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


In the ever growing world of the Borg (Software types), signal lines are labeled by the function they perform/cause in their _HIGH_ state.  When the PTT line is high, the transmitter is in standby.  It could also be called *Transmit  or /Transmit as these are other ways of putting the "not" bar above a name to indicate that it is named for the function when put _LOW_.
