    Abstract: A satellite transmitter module for accepting input signals and emitting output signals for uplink transmission. The module includes a transmitter unit that includes i) transmitter circuitry, ii) at least one input port, iii) and at least one output port. At least one heat sink coupled to the transmitter unit includes a plurality of heat sink fins, wherein at least two of the plurality of heat sink fins are of different heights. A fan is capable of generating air flow parallel with the plurality of heat sink fins. The module further includes an outer enclosure that i) encloses the transmitter unit and the plurality of heat sink fins and ii) is impermeable to the air flow generated by the fan. The outer enclosure includes an enclosure cross section shape that is substantially similar to the at least one heat sink cross section shape defined by the height of each of the plurality of the heat sink fins.
