The Yaesu FT-7900R dual bander operates on 2 meters and 70 centimeters. High power output is featured with 50 watts on 2 meters and 45 watts on 430 MHz. CTCSS/DCS Encode/Decode is built in. Over 1000 memories are available. It is WIRES compatible. The FT-7900R well designed front panel provides simple, safe operation. The FT-7900R is ideal for the amateur who does not require cross-band repeat as found on the FT-8800R and FT-8900R. The FT-7900R has excellent receive range covering 108 to 520 and 700-990 MHz (less cellular). Operating this radio is very simple and straight forward, and you may program it to your operational preferences via a menu system. The FT-7900R features Yaesu’s ARTS™ Auto-Range Transponder System, important in search-and-rescue applications. ARTS provides a “hand-shake” with other ARTS equipped transceivers and displays out of range or in range. A six character CW ID is also provided for your station every ten minutes during ARTS operation. The FT-7900R is similar to the FT-7800R, but adds a Memory Only mode and provides 5 watts more on 440.
The FT-7900R comes with a MMB-36 mobile mounting bracket, DC cord and MH-48A6J Up-Down, illuminated DTMF microphone.
