Re: Anything to look for


 

To help keep my IC-7000 cool I added two 1" fans to the rear of the heatsinks using some hot glue. I powered them from the +12 volt available at the tuner 4 pin plug on the rear. I spliced it in between a plug that goes into the radio and a second jack that an auto tuner would plug into with a small switch to turn them on and off. 
This setup helped keep the radio cooler when operating digital on FT8.
I also added a set of Anderson Power Poles to power another small (very)12 volt load.
