I use a Yaesu FTM-400DR Fusion in crossband for nets so I can move around the house with a HT.
I squeezed the heads of small bolts flat in a vise so they would slip into the heatsink fins. Using double nuts I spaced the 1" fan about 3/8" above the fins. I installed the bolts an nuts semi tight and found a position where the bolt spacing would match the fins. I then used super glue on the fins and bolt heads. So far - so good. The radio is cool after an hour of the crossband transmitter running on low power.
Just an idea. Haven't pulled my 7000 out from under the seat to see how that might work. My voltage booster with the 7000 has a fan that turns on at 125° F and it runs all summer long in Phoenix. It would run the battery dead over a weeks time if I didn't have the power feed switched. (As me how I know?)
