I am not pursuing the UX-14 project. However I do have the following and 
can send to W2FS if he wants.

I borrowed a UX-14 from amsat member k8rsp. I photographed the front and 
rear and have them in digital form. I have schematics and parts lists from 
Icom, the user manual, and some notes that I made. Beware that this gadget 
is more complex than you think. There are parts top and bottom, fairly 
dense surface mount. But it is certainly doable by anyone with good pcb 
layout skills. This has been a longstanding problem for many amsat members 
with the ic-271/471 radios and it would be nice to help them.
