    Yes. Apparently it was very easy to puncture the gas tank if you hit a Pinto from behind. Some folks were severely burned.

    Yes I remember several times people were killed when hit from the rear. Also he went after the corvair, JC 5 and 7. 73 Rich

    I hate fans, despise fans but the 7300 fan never bothered me.

    Either you were lucky or your hearing is impaired.

    As I sit here I hear the refrigerator going, I hear the tick of a clock, I hear a fan on my computer but barely heard one on the 7300.

    Probably cuz you sold it and got that Flex;)

    I don't hear the Flex fan either but I do have a linear power supply and I don't like that fan and I hate the sound of my vacuum cleaner.

    Does the fan run all of the time? I know that the fan on my TS-480 only comes on when the internal temperature rises above a certain level, otherwise there very little noise at all. Normal SSB voice isn’t enough to make it come on, but running digital with a little power is enough to make it come on...and it’s pretty noisy.


    Maybe the Icom is similar.

    It runs on transmit constantly at any power level, down to less than 1 watt.

    The one I installed, as pictured above, is completely silent.
