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 with RDS (radio data text), 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 broadcast FM, AM, narrowband FM, upper sideband (USB) and lower sideband (LSB) 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

Plug the USB dongle in the charging USB socket of your Android device via the OTG cable and run SDR Touch! It is that simple! Now you can listen to live radio on Android devices that don't have a built-in FM support, without requiring a data plan!

Can we have auto scan? Have you thought to do a port of multimon or gmfsk? Would pay for that. To decode pocag, flight info, marine data, psk and rtty. Even sstv and fax

Not enough time in demo mode This might be a nice app, but only having such a short time to test makes it next to useless.

Free version OK, Not so sure about paid version About half way through my evaluation of the free version ( demo version) many of the features quit prompting me to buy the full version. Was about to pull the trigger when I noticed the date of last update is Oct 2013. Considering the notice "This application is currently experimental and may crash. Please, report any bugs to the email provided in the Help" and the paid version is $10, I would expect an update in less than 14 mths. Might check back at a later date.

Best sdr app yet Installed on my galaxy note no problem and I use it just about everyday to listen in on the ham bands and other frequencies with an rtl dongle. A great piece of software.
