Programming software needed

Post by paul webster » Thu Jul 20, 2017 9:43 pm

Hi does anybody have a copy of the programming software for a Yaesu ft-7900r so I can programme up Brads (VK2KBH) radio for ease of use for him
Cheers Paul

Hi Paul,

I also have a Yaesu FT-7900R, bought new, but I'm pretty sure that software didn't come with it. I'll have a look over the weekend and see what I can come up with, otherwise it looks like you may have to purchase it.

Perhaps we could clone Brad's radio from mine, if that helps?

73,

Yes Peter the radio doesn't come with it , I have a ftm-400xdr which you can get the software from Yaesu's website . That sounds like a good idea :idea: :idea:

Have you tried CHIRP? It supports the FT-7900R.

It will certainly be a lot quicker.
