Default Jotto Desk faceplate for RCI 2950

I have a Jotto desk in my work vehicle, and would love to find a faceplate to put my RCI 2950 in it. Wondering if anyone knows any item numbers for a faceplate that would work. Thanks.

I have a Jotto Desk "Lazy-L" in my 2009 CVPI. The people in customer service are wonderful to deal with. One word of caution - these faceplates are NOT cheap, plus they charge an arm and a leg for shipping. But the final outcome is great!

When I ordered my Jotto Desk new, it came with all the faceplates I needed. I just need to specify which ones I needed. I'm not sure if all models come with faceplates, but I know I couldn't have bought a used console and then the faceplates for cheaper then a new one.

I dealt with JottoDesk in the past. I believe it's their policy that every console sold new comes with credit for enough face plates to fill the console. That is, if you order a console with 12" of face plate space, you get 12" of face plates in any combination you want as part of the deal.

The trick is figuring out what you want. If they don't have a face plate specifically made for your radio, give them the height and width of the face of the radio along with the locations of the mounting screws on the side of the radio. Their product engineering people will try to come with something that will work.

I see you have an FT-857 in the photo. Is there a faceplate to fit the entire unit, or do you have the face separated?

It's actually a blank panel. My installer put in a small hole for the interface cable, and we used heavy-duty Velcro product to affix the head to the panel. If you look closely at the bottom of the FT-857D control head, you'll see the Velcro product. It's really not all that visible in person unless you look closely for it.

Troy makes a faceplate for the FT817. I did the remote mount with the control head on a blank panel also for the FT857.
