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 to 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. Later production included the YSK-7800 remote cable.
