DroidProp


DroidProp is professional HF propagation prediction software for 3 to 30 MHz, powered by VOACAP (Voice of America Coverage Analysis Program). This app is mainly intended for ham radio operators and SWLs (shortwave listeners).

All calculations are done in the device. No Internet connection is required, except for automatic updates of the sunspot numbers at regular intervals.

Due to the usage of a full fledged VOACAP-installation, the app has to be installed in the phone-internal memory (APP2SD is not possible). This is due to technical restrictions. It requires about 9 MB (after installation) flash storage plus approx. 120 kB / prediction

Permissions:
INTERNET: Required to download current SSN data

EXTERNAL STORAGE: Required for VOACAP runtime files

LOCATION: Required to use current position for a site

Hdrd to read the graphs Does not give a description of what the scales of the graphs mean. Does not explain the color-coding of the data. Attempted to describe graphs overall, but useless without scale information. Also, what are the units of the scales? Numbers could mean: Day-of-Month,% of X, Frequency-in-MHz, -db (db down), but can't tell what is what.
