The matte black anodized case is very compact with a length of 150mm and a width of 170mm. The integrated cooling fins of the extruded aluminum case provide sufficient cooling for the upconverter with the integrated 6W PA without the need for a fan. The front panel and rear panel are professionally manufactured (Figure 1). The housing kit can be purchased from the AMSAT-DL store Amsat Shop.
