Thanks Jack.  That sounds like a nice universal solution.

You can then key the relay with your mike switch.  Its OK to utilize some rectified fil voltage for the relay pwr.  Then utilize one set of relay contacts to key the xmtr (most are cathode keyed) via the key jack.  Utililize a second set of contacts to key your antenna relay, a third to key the VFO, if you are using one, and the last set to mute your receiver (either make or break according to what your rcvr requires).  This little scheme works great and can be moved from rig to rig to quickly add PTT type operation.
