Dunno if the HMN3000B is the same or what, but, if you have a maxtrac or GM series style radio, the pinout is the same.
pin 3 is the "hook"
pin 4 is GND
pin 5 is Mic Audio
Pin 6 is PTT
The 'Trasher
PCIA #38104

Does the desk mic have a built in mic amp that require use of the 5v+ pin?

All the Motorola desk mics have a builtin preamp, but they don't require use of the +5V pin. Motorola mobile radios are designed to use a 'carbon mic standard' where the mic audio line has a positive bias voltage on it to supply the desk mic preamp as well as route the mic audio to the radio.
