Yaesu Illuminator Board

Yaesu Rotor Control Light Bulb RepairNew Ham Supply Product!Our first new Ham Supply product, the Yaesu Illuminator is out of research & development and is now offered to the radio community at large.  Confirmed fit in Yaesu G-800DXA, G-1000DXA, G-2800DXA, G-800DXC, G-1000DXC, G-2800DXC, G-800S, G-800SA, G-800SDX, G-1000SDX and G-2800SDX rotor controllers.

Are you tired of your dark Yaesu Rotor Controller because the pesky non-serviceable, super high-intensity “fuse” style light bulb burned out? Frustrated from trying to repair or replace it, let alone worn out from all you needed to do just to access the stock bulb?  When you finally do access the bulb you’ll find out you can’t buy the bulb?  What then?  If it’s anything like a couple of my Yaesu Rotor control boxes (right before they decided they didn’t want to light anymore) they actually deformed my plastic corner dial ring and housing.  That’s some real heat nobody wants in their rotor controller!

Yaesu Illuminator 3 LED Fix for Yaesy Rotor ControllersOur Assembled & Tested Yaesu Illuminator 3 LED board gives you all the light you need, even in daylight!  The Yaesu Illuminator comes preassembled, all you do is mount the small printed circuit board and connect two wires.  Our simple step by step instructions are easy to follow.  The best part is you don’t need to be an electronic technician; a Phillips screwdriver, a pair of side cutters and about 20 minutes and you’re done!  In most cases (if not all) there are no internal plugs to connect/reconnect – the only plug you need to disconnect/reconnect is the power cord!  No printed circuit board assembly either as we’ve done that for you!

We have targeted the design of our Ham Supply Yaesu Illuminator for low cost and simplicity, yet we wanted it to be very, very effective.  Mission accomplished!

I am not a photographer (I’m a DXer), and they say it’s always hard to photograph “light” – but here’s a few side by side comparisons below.  I think you can see what the Yaesu Illuminator can do for your Yaesu Rotor Controller.
