Vintage Shortwave Radio: Yaesu FRG 7700 General Coverage Receiver

Here is a look at my Yaesu FRG-770 with the FRV-7700 transverter. I bought this receiver in the early 90’s after I got my Ham Radio license so I could listen in on HF. Its not the best performing radio I’ve ever used but it still holds up pretty well after all these years.
