Umm, lets get this straight.  You want to know what wires to connect to an unspecified connector which connects to an unspecified radio?

Can you at least tell us which war the radio is from?  Smiley

Have you got a copy of the radio manual?  The military usually has great manuals that detail this stuff.

  The radio is a prc/174  Tadiron  surplus Israel set. The connector is a military type, also
used in the prc/77 American military radio.

Great, that's something we can work with!   

It will be interesting to hear your impressions of that radio.

handsets and standard pinouts.

The H-259 handset for this radio is difficult to find info for.  The page above has the pinout for standard 5 pin audio plug like for the common H-250 handset.  If this is correct then you  only need to connect two wires for your key A-Ground-Black,  C-PTT-Green.   

You can test this on the radio beforehand by taking a piece of wire and confirming that shorting C-A keys the radio.  If it doesn't work, there are only a handful of combinations to check.  I did not find an easy diagram in the manual.  The info may be in the schematics but they are such poor quality I don't want to go blind.  Smiley

Michael, I'd love to snag these but blog type URL's get blocked from my MIL desk.
Could you tell me what filetype they are?  Perhaps they're small enough that I could give you an email acct to send them to?
Have more than a few old 05B's/18E's that would enjoy them.
Thanks!!
