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 with spectrum analyser. 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!

So close to being great. The user experience seems a tad more cumbersome than it needs to be. Like a few others mentioned before me, when setting the bandwidth and adjusting the frequency, one tends to happen when what I wanted was the other... But other than minor little annoyances with the interface, it does what it needs to. If the pro version had been $5 or less I would own it already. At nearly $10, though, it might happen at some point but just not right now.

Works well.. Not super fancy but it's very stable and funtional with an RTL dongle. It does analog modes very well. Would love to see DSD or DSD+ added someday for some digital modes too!
