Some kind of Molex connector? Maybe some profile photos and face on might give more insight? You might be able to contact customer support at molex.

Thanks Chris. I will start there.

Look for any tiny markings or writing molded into the connector. I used to work for Molex, and all our connectors had the part number molded into them, but it can be REALLY tiny.

I actually looked at it with a dissecting microscope.. no joy. I am guessing it is NOT Molex, perhaps something European.

The only marking on it was an L which seems to indicate the side and a 6 indicating the number of pins. 

I will pick Pavels brains at UW Technics, since it mates with a connector on his TTL board.

Likely that's a Pin 1 and Pin 6 identifier, which is common. 

If the mating connector is just a strip of pins, you may be able to measure their pin size and pitch, and find a compatible connector/terminal setup.

You might find it here:  https://www.futureelectronics.com/c/interconnect/connectors-pcb--header-plug-wire-mount/products?q=%3Arelevance&text=&pageSize=100 

or somewhere else on that website, but that would only get you a part number to search for unless you wanted to buy 100, then you need a crimper to attach to your cable.
