Yaesu FT-7800/7900 VHF/UHF Mobiles

Yaesu FT-7800Yaesu FT-7900In the shack I have a Yaesu FT-7800, and I also had it’s newer brother the Yaesu FT-7900 in the car. This has now been replaced by a Yaesu FT-857D.
This pair of radios are virtually identical. The newer FT-7900 has a slightly different facia, the difference being the size and shape of the control buttons.

The functions available from the front panel are the same as the FT-7800. The FT-7900 also boasts a few extra watts of RF output power on the UHF band.

Both radios have been programmed identically – this is just to help prevent confusion when operation the different radios.
