The FT-7900R provides 50 Watts of power on the 144 MHz band, and 40 Watts on the 430 MHz, and is designed for simplicity of operation along with high performance in the receiver section. The FT-7900R is ideal for the active Ham who has a need for simplex, repeater, or FM satellite operation on both bands, but without the complication of cross-band repeat capability.



       

The FT-7900E provides 50 Watts of power on the 144 MHz band, and 40 Watts on the 430 MHz, and is designed for simplicity of operation along with high performance in the receiver section. The FT-7900E is ideal for the active Ham who has a need for simplex, repeater, or FM satellite operation on both bands, but without the complication of cross-band repeat capability, which is available on our FT-8800E and FT-8900R models.
 

High Power Output Boasting a big 50 Watts of power output on 144 MHz, and 40 Watts on 430 MHz, the FT-7900R also includes provision for three lower power levels, so you never have to use more power than you really need. The power level is stored in regular and Hyper Memory registers, too!
 

Wide Receiver Frequency Coverage The FT-7900R provides receiver coverage from 108 to 520 MHz, and 700 to 999.99 MHz (cellular blocked), so you have available a wide range of monitoring excitement, including AM Aircraft, Public Safety, Government, Business, and, of course, Amateur communications. The synthesizer steps appropriate for the operating band are automatically selected, too!
 

Large LCD Display The large backlit LCD on the FT-7900R ensure excellent visibility
 

One-Touch Five front panel keys allow complete transceiver configuration status to be stored for convenient one-touch recall. So you can set up favorite frequencies in each operating band, including the receive-only bands, and then recall them with a single touch of a button!
 

Over 1000 Memory Channels The FT-7900R’s incredible memory channel capacity includes registers for over 1000 channels, each capable of storing a 6-character Alpha-Numeric label. And the memories may be stored in any of the 20 available memory groups; a particular memory channel may also be stored in multiple groups, if desired.
 

YSK-7800 Remote Mounting Kit (option) Using the optional YSK-7800 Separation Kit, which contains both cabling and a bracket for the remote front panel, you can mount the FT-7900R’s front panel on the vehicle’s dash board, then stow the radio’s body under the seat or in some other convenient, out-of-the-way location. The cables are approximately 20 feet (6 m) in length.

 

WiRES™ Internet Linking Capability The FT-7900R’s DTMF signaling capability includes provision for easy access to Yaesu’s WiRES™ (Wide-coverage Internet Repeater Enhancement System) Internet linking nodes, as well as other linking systems that require a DTMF string for access.

FT-7900 Pete 27-08-2015
Very good for mobile use, buttons back lit, good size and easy to use. Good size clear display screen.
Very capable 2/70 base or mobile rig! Graham 11-03-2015
I purchased from ML&S in 2008 when first licensed as an M6 the Yaesu 7800R and I've been very impressed with it over the last 7 years and it's been faultless. Needing another rig for home base use the choice under £300 is quite limited, so I naturally went for the upgraded version the 7900R The only visual difference I can see is that the buttons are more rounded on the FT7900 and the main on/off switch is red on the new version where it was blue on the old. The rig works vertually the same and if you've used a 7800 you won't need to refer to the instructions. The 7900 has a little extra power but to be honest it won't make a lot of difference. Far better to get a good antenna like the diamond X200 and some good low loss coax than try and add another 20 watts! Remember that with VHF and UHF height and low loss coax rules! A great little rig and even better now as it comes boxed with the head kit for remote use. The only comment I would make is that whilst the fan isn't overly noisy, it does activate quite quickly and even on 5 watts output so the head kit might be a good investment for home base use, allowing you to gain further distance from base unit to mic reducing the fan noise, however I've not been told on air that the fan noise is audible. I have received a few un solicited reports of good clear audio and in fact it is better to keep a few inches from your mouth to the mic as it is quite sensitive and can be prone to overdriving the audio. Receive is very good, however I would personally like a little more strength with the squelch control that does need winding round quite excessively to cut out stronger signals. It does come as standard with a wide band receiver and even covers AM aircraft bands as a bonus. The display is quite large given the size of the faceplate and is very clear to read even at an angle. You won't be disappointed. Also if you have programmed your channels and memories with the 7800 the lead and software (chirp) is compatible so I just downloaded my previous 7800 file and away I went. Just a little note that caused me a problem, don't be tempted to leave the programme lead in the rear of the rig as it keys the rig into TX when the radio is turned back on after programming transfer. 73 M0KTY
Great radio Syd 31-03-2014
Have to agree with Andy here. This is a great, all you need mobile radio. Switchable FM and AM with a VERY wideband RX including UHF airband which isn't mentioned in the specs. Get one before they are gone !
A cracking little radio at a great price. Andy 21-01-2014
To be honest when looking around for a dual band vhf/uhf tranciever in £200 odd range choices are rather limited. What a great surprise then to find that one of the only real contenders at this price is such a great rig! All the usual tranciever functions are well catered for with a nice clean front panel with three good rotary controls. However the surprise here is that this is also a really good scanner as well with very wideband recieve abilities that wouldn't go amiss on the likes of bearcat. Although not obvious from the specs this radio is capable of both FM and AM reception. The ability to link memory banks for scanning is also very good. In fact this rig would be a bargin just as a reciever even if it didn't have its transmit options. Get one quick before Yeasu cotton on and put the price up :) Andy R (G1UUP)
