[chirp_users] Yaesu FT-7900 R/E question

The 7900 will not show in the list of radios in Chirp unless Chirp 
has been modified to use it. Nor is it likely the 7900 will operate 
with the 7800 that is supported by Chirp. I've not heard of radios
that work with Chirp while being undocumented to do so. I'm fairly
certain Chirp looks for the radio ID when trying to read from it and 
simply won't allow its use for your sake. 

I use for my FT8900 software from www.g4hfq.co.uk/ftb7900.htm and will work
flawlessly with your FT7900 R/E. It's called FTB7900. You can test it out, you 
just can't write ti the radio unless you pay I think $15.00 US, well worth it. 
Hope you have the right cable. USB on one in and Mini 6 pin DIN on the 
other like most Yaesu mobiles use. 

Good luck
