How about a 6-pin mini-DIN to three or four 3.5mm stereo miniplugs?      This 
would allow an instant "soundcard interface" by connecting the TX and RX audio 
lines of the mini-din DATA/PACKET jack on many radios to corresponding LINE-IN 
and LINE-OUT jacks on a computer sound card  The other one would carry RX 
SQ/COR and PTT on tip and ring for interfacing with more advanced sound card 

Or perhaps the two audio liness could be be stereo miniplugs with the tip and 
ring shorted together (so audio goes into both channels of a sound system), 
while the PTT and COR lines are two single-contact RCA plugs.

(I've been assembling this by splicing min-DIN patch cables to 3.5mm plugs 
myself for numerous sound card assemblies.)
