The FA-7 is an off-the-shelf fan. Somewhere in the bowels of the internet you
should be able to find the OEM make and model. If not, I can look on one of
mine tomorrow. It's a 19 CFM fan, IIRC. I have a box full of the Papst 32 CFM
version, but those are way too noisy for the average ham shack (nice upgrade
for the DL-1000 though...).

Hi Bill, 
 
Most any 110V fan that fits the hole pattern will work.  Most are a  bit 
faster and noisier than the FA-7 fan but I used to work with broadcast  
transmitters so fan nose never bothered me.  There are 12V fans available  that 
also fit the hole pattern but they don't seem to move as much air as the  line 
voltage units. Whatever fan you install, it should be mounted so that  it 
blows out from the power supply. Also, the regular fans can be had at  
hamfests for around $5.00, sometimes even less.  You will usually pay  big 
bucks 
for an FA-7.
