That explains it...I did not look there :-)

I need to see if my new Chinese versions have it ... it looks like 
lots more parts on the board but very similar otherwise... some other 
buttons added for mute and volume up down on the fob itself... 
assuming we do not need core.... I am wondering if I can isolate the 
4th pin on the speaker and  mic jack and just push ptt out that jack 
instead of cutting it all out as seems like the other 3 leads do not 
need to be changed...

I am considering replacing the npn transistor with a 2n7000 series 
fet as a series resistor is not needed on the gate side... as long as 
all runs at logic levels etc...
