The Yaesu FRG-7700 is an HF receiver for the radio amateur and for the commercial market. It is a metal-cased receiver with a polymer front and it is suitable for reception in the AM, FM, CW and SSB modes. Its frequency coverage is from 150 kHz – 30.0 MHz continuously in 30 switchable bandsegments. Its frequency readout is available in a traditional analog (dish) mode as well as in a digital display mode.
Called a “budget receiver”, the FRG-7700 was released in 1978 as successor to the FRG-7000 by the Japanese Yaesu Musen Corporation and priced at approximately US$450. This type was in production until 1982.
The FRG-7700 is a superheterodyne type receiver going up to 48 MHz in the Intermediate Frequency trap, followed by a fully synthesized local oscillators in the 1st and 2nd mixer unit and thus creating a VFO that is reasonably stable after warm-up.
