Heavy $\chem{^{65\mbox{-}70}Co}$, $\chem{^{68\mbox{-}74}Ni}$, $\chem{^{70\mbox{-}76}Cu}$ and $\chem{^{74\mbox{-}81}Ga}$ isotopes were produced at the LISOL facility by means of 30 MeV proton-induced fission of $\chem{^{238}U}$. Production rates were deduced and compared to two types of cross-section calculations: the empirical model (V. Rubchenya, private communication) and the PROFI code. Comparison with experimental data favors the latter model. Yields using different beam-target combinations and different energies are calculated and discussed.
