Hello Rusty
I have the 7800R and there are tabs to the left of the screen for the buttons. As to change the name it is a column right between the freq and tone. Click on that line and type away, 6 letters max.

hope this helps you out.

I’m using Chirp to program my Baofeng unit and wanted to do the same for my FT-7900R but have run into 2 items that I haven't found to control some minor items in the Yaesu unit.  The basic frequency, tone and offset are just fine.

1.  I’ve previously used RT Systems to program my FT-7900R and that software has a Hyper Memory that can configure the 5 buttons around the display (labeled 1-5).  I can’t seem to find where to set that on Chirp.  Is that available?

2.  I cannot seem to set the display for each channel to frequency or Name.  Again, that is available in RT Systems and I am guessing it is also available on Chirp but where?

What I have works for the basics and I am glad for that but learning the software does take a little time.  Possibly there is a tab I haven’t tried.
