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 broadcast FM, AM, narrowband FM, upper sideband and lower sideband 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!

This application is currently experimental and may crash. Please, report any bugs to the email provided in the Help.

Needs ALOT of work. Why are we tuning like you do turning a dial on a radio? Also remote RTL is very buggy and manual gain control is broken there.
