 Those connectors are  everyday, standard, garden variety    slip on connectors..
Available at  any hardware store or  walmart  automotive  etc.

now if you want the  housing, thats  another story.  but to make the connection, just get some slip on connectors and  some tape.

But then you should know that  mouser, digi-key,   radio shack, and  a host of others  carry the real thing,     

used on almost all   Japanese  radios.

 I know they are off the shelf blade connectors inside a housing, I am actually looking for the housing, I would like to make a couple of harnesses and keep the factory plugs. I could cut the plugs off and replace them with delphi weather packs as I have the tools to do so but I rather keep it factory. They are used on the old Radio Shack 2 meter hams, Yaesu, and my Vertex Standard. I appreciate your input. I am actually looking for the mouser/newark part #

Yeah these sites I cam across, its just shocking no one knows who the OEM is, 2.99 a pop is up there but I guess not outrageous.  Thank you for your efforts Cheesy

IF you prefer dealing with a Chinese supplier via Hong Kong shipments,
MOD DIY is a very well known supplier (web page, eBay, Amazon) for PC connectors.  
These same Chinese mfg. and suppliers to MOD DIY are used for radio industry market segment.
