Ok I would like to know if I done this correct. I edited the config file 
CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE="rt73.bin"
Then copied config to untarred linux dir, I then copied rt73.bin to 
linux/firmware then remade the kernel.
looking at config

CONFIG_STANDALONE=y
CONFIG_PREVENT_FIRMWARE_BUILD=y
CONFIG_FW_LOADER=y
CONFIG_FIRMWARE_IN_KERNEL=y
CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE="rt73.bin"
CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE_DIR="firmware"
