SDR Touch - Live radio via USB

SDR Touch - Live radio via USB


Turn your mobile phone or tablet into an affordable and portable software defined radio scanner. Listen and record live on air FM STEREO radio stations, weather reports, emergency stations, taxi traffic, airplane communications, audio of analogue TV broadcasts, HAM radio amateurs, digital broadcasts and many more! Depending on the hardware used, its radio frequency coverage could span between 50 MHz and 2.2 GHz. It currently demodulates WFM, AM, NFM, USB, LSB, CWU and CLW signals.

You need:

- USB digital TV (DVB-T) dongle with the RTL2832U chip. You may already have one of them laying around. They cost less than $10
- USB OTG (On-The-Go) cable - if you've ever connected a USB thumb drive to your Android device, you already have it. They are extremely cheap

Then you just need to connect the USB dongle to an antenna, and via the OTG cable to you Android device and run SDR Touch! It is that simple! Now you can listen to live radio on devices (like the Nexus 7) that don't have a built-in FM support!

It keeps getting better. Since I first used and then purchased the app it has continued to improve. The squelch control is highly improved. I look forward to testing the improvements in FM weak signal reception on the 2 Meter ham band and weather band.

Not worth $10.00 license key New version is buggier than the old one. I recommend testing on a few common platforms.
