The only place I have seen that problem mentioned is on the PTP list I am on, and it was mentioned by Tony from Demarch Tech. (Who just happens to sell Zcomax cards (which cost twice as much) instead of Senao ones)
The Senao cards have passed FCC cert. as well so I don't know what that person was trying to say.
I haven't had a chance to use a Senao card under heavy use, or in an outdoor case yet, but what I can tell you is the cards run VERY cool under normal client use, while the Zcomax 100mw cards I have run VERY VERY hot under normal use.
