Soldering these TINY pins is tough!! Built a cable with one once. Be careful! Don't forget to put the hood on the cable, and in the proper orientation first!!
Thanks for the help have cable with connector on order.
Just for the record.....
The plug is the same one used by Kenwood for several of its radios. Unlike the Icom supplied one, it doesn't have pigtails.
The admonition about soldering is a good one. The best way is to use a very small tip, and low-melt solder (≈750°F).

The best way is to figure out which pins you are going to use, do it twice. And then cut off the rest. You will find the ones you need are scattered out and easy without the forest in the way.
