    It looks like these may be the binary inputs.

    IC
    14 - J1-6
    15 - J1-5
    16 - J1-4
    17 - J1-3
    18 - J1-2
    19 - J1-1

    J1:
    1 - IC-19
    2 - IC-18
    3 - IC-17
    4 - IC-16
    5 - IC-15
    6 - IC-14

    There must be power there somewhere. Maybe IC pin 20, J1 pin 7.

    Might also check this IC:

    mc68hc705j1a

    Found another thread where this is used for CTCSS tone generation.

    Sorry for not including that information (I was half asleep when I finally got a chance to post the reply). You are right on where the power connection is.

    The information form the Kenwood service manual for the J1 connector is as follows:

    Pins 1-6 are the binary input (T1-T6 in schematic)
    Pin 7 is Power (5C in schematic)
    Pin 8 looks to be high on transmit (TH in schematic)
    Pin 9 looks to be the tone signal (TI in the schematic)
    Pin 10 is ground. (E in the schematic)

    That looks to be a programmable microcontroller... To get that to work, I believe we would need the code that is flashed onto the chip to make it work.

    The MC68HC705J1A does have a 20-pin small outline IC package version that seems to match what Piexx used.

    Along these same lines, I saw some generic CTCSS encoders on eBay that used PIC microcontrollers. I am now wondering if Piexx used a custom microcontroller like the MC68HC705J1A as well.
