Custom rockers for Ham Radio

Any know of a vendor that has custom rockers for the dual LED SPOD. I would like to get a "Ham Radio" or just "Radio" rocker.. The only thing I can find is "CB Radio"

I do not know what radio equipment you have but my Yaesu stuff requires you to hold the power button on for a few seconds before it boots up. I do not know if leaving it on just using an auxiliary switch would work.

I have the Yaesu FT7800 and had it hooked up to the ACC-On, it would turn on each time I started the vehicle.

It does. I never turn my FT8800 off. Just turn the auxiliary power switch on the spod on or off.

I have a ft1500m and it powers up as soon as I flip the rocker on. Works just like the power button.

In my Toyota Tacoma I installed a wireless remote control relay, which controls 2- 12 volt 40 amp automotive relays which the radio's power passes through. I have a Yaesu FTM-350, Icom IC-7000, Icom ID-1 and a Kenwood TK-931 all powered. They all turn on with the press of a key fob remote control button. Been working fine since 2009. In my Jeep I have an Icom ID-880H and a dash switch controls a 12 volt 40 amp automotive relay. The actual radio is installed in a NEMA box with a 12 VDC fan inside the security trunk, the control head is remote and hangs on the windshield tie down just above the rear view mirror.
