It does have the exposed heat sink and IIRC no fan. It's not that big, smaller than a FT-1802 or FT-79/88/8900. About the same size as the current FT-1900 I think. There's not much empty space in the case, it's a very small radio.

Good little radio, worth hanging on to for when you get your ticket. Probably worth $75 to $100 on eBay or, I'd likely ask about $50 from a friend if it's in nice shape and functions.

I've always thought the guts of the Kenwood TM-241 are probably the same as the FT-2200, although I've never had both at the same time to compare. They seem /very/ similar.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
