Sometimes even the best equipment can get hot, for example when used in tropical zones or in certain industrial environments. Or you need a fixed place for the mobile transceiver... This is where the desktop case SMB-201 by Yaesu really shines!
The desktop case SMB-201 by Yaesu act as a support and case for various mobile transceivers. Below the radio sits a fan unit to provide cooling, even when the case is installed in narrow spaces with less than perfect ventilation. The SMB-201 includes it#s own power supply (SAD-11C, included). The radio is installed with 4 screws into the case, usually the speaker points upwards and is not blocked.
This unit keeps the radio very cool. Hardly warm after half an hour of 50/50 use on 50Watts. FTM400XDE in use. Good unit.
A must for warmer environments
This unit arrived well packaged. The box contains an extra set of screws if you have lost the originals. There is a dedicated PSU that remains plugged in and powered up. The unit is very well made, with a high quality finish. During operation the fan is very quiet and efficient. The best bit of all it is a perfect fit for the older Yaesu radios eg. FT-7800. If you are using the radio for a hot spot with continuous use this is an ideal and efficient way of cooling the radio.
