The Phoenix USB interface acts as a kind of dongle, so there is a microchip in between the USB and the 3.5mm jack side. And even technically speaking, it will not be possible to just map USB-pins to 3.5mm pins.
If you do want to make your cable yourself, I would recommend you to take a look at SmartPropoPlus, which uses the line-in of your sound card to read the Tx.

I thought I could butcher an old USB cable and put a 3.5mm jack on one end. Any chance of you telling what the pin-out match-up is for the USB and 3.5mm jack ends of the Phoenix cable ?
Thanks in advance.
