Great radio for a tight budget   Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I got this radio because I did not want a dual band radio for my base. So I bought the FT-2900R and then I got this radio (FT-1907R) about a year ago, I am happy with it. For the most part has the same set-up as the FT-2900R so programing it is easy. only thing I did noticed is the mic seems to be the cheep knock off, It's not like the FT-2900R mic it's thinner also I opened the mic up and it's not the same quality. But the L.E.D.s are much brighter, I would say about 3X brighter. Hope to change the radio over to the N-type connector someday.

Fully featured on a budget  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I recently started looking for a UHF transceiver for the shack. I know there are plenty of multi band models but I run separate antennas for each band & I really wanted something I could leave running.

I thought Alinco were about the only company left selling single band UHF transceivers until I discovered the FT-1907R. Its very similar to the FT-1900 2M transceiver from Yaesu.

Initial testing showed that it did provide 55 watts output as specified and on the air was reasonably sensitive.

Transmit and receive runs from 400 - 470 Mhz continuous.

At the heart of the The PA stage is Mitsubishi RF Mosfet module capable of 60 watts

I found that like the FT-1900 this gets quite warm during extended transmit so I will fit a small fan if I need to run it on high power regularly

As its a UHF rig an N-type connector would have been a nice addition. This was quickly fixed.

The rig comes with the usual Yaesu accessories (Even the sticky Yaesu label). I found the user guide listed on the Yaesu Russian site but strangely its only mention is on a brochure where it says Asian market only?

I'm not sure why its not more widely available; maybe its early days. Either way its inexpensive, fun to use and very compact.
