I've labelled this project as moderate (orange) because it uses a modular plug, therefore requiring the use of specialised crimping pliers, otherwise it would have been easy (green).
This adapter allows the use of 8 Pin round Alinco microphones on many Alinco radios with the 8P8C modular socket. The image below shows the view of the 8P8C plug with the locking tab underneath and wire connectors toward you. The 8 Pin round socket is viewed looking into it as if you were about to put a plug in it.
