Acknowledging you posted this one year ago now, but GPS Status does what you want.
Displays raw GPS data, and can output location in a variety of formats like DM.M, DMS, UTM, Maidenhead.

DroidPSK seems pretty good for what it is.

Another vote for HAM GPS! I have it installed on my Nexus 7.

Also for those that are interested in the night sky, try Google Sky Map.

...and if you want to go better and far more detailed than Google Sky Map with more objects and deeper catalogues, I can recommend Sky Safari. It's not free, but reasonably cheap.

+1 for HamGPS... it's on my Android Galaxy.

Because the world prefers IOS :).

This is android and apple. A repeater finder app that's free.

The author has some other apps as well.

Another is the companion app for iPad for macloggerDX. A wonderful mac logbook program

But according to official figures the Android : Apple market share ratio is 51% : 43% with the remainder to odd-ball systems.

I'd like to see a QST-specific reading app for Android since it is the majority market share.

Another interesting app, as Peter VK3YE makes reference to in this video, is Frequensee.

This is the free version of an audio spectrum analyzer app.
The paid version ($0.99) is here.

I just discovered that Zippy, my Rainbow Lorikeet, has significant harmonic content in his tuneful whistles. Who would have thought it!

Perhaps I need a RL BPF :shock:

QST App now on Android

Postby VK2GOM » Thu Oct 24, 2013 5:15 am

I'm not quite sure why it took so long, but the QST app is now available on Android.

A bit like releasing a new feature film on VHS 10 months earlier than on DVD or BluRay :lol:

I installed it last night on my Galaxy S3.
Works fine.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.branded.arrl
(It is always helpful to include a URL when referring to things)

This app has the potential to become a handy reference (anywhere/anytime) for something you may have read in the dead-tree version.

I like the way you can either view on line, or download the issue for off line reading.
On first use, the interface isn't that intuitive, but I can see they are maximising screen space for the actual magazine itself.

Good to see the ARRL is embracing the 21 st century.
All of these initiatives can only help engage a much need younger tech savvy demographic into an otherwise dying hobby.

... and while we're at it, Dan Murphy's has a new app.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=au.com.danmurphys&hl=en

For when you need to celebrate a new DXCC, or grid worked!
... or when you need a calmative because you just missed out on that new DXCC or grid. :wink:

Hi,
In the Google Play store there is an app called "Predict" which gives you satellite tracking as well as Sun and Moon details for when you need to check on where they are or get an idea when to be in the shack for Moon rise.

The Satellite portion of it is quite comprehensive and it can auto populate the list and update Kep elements at the tap of the screen.

The interface is nothing special and is a port of a Linux app from the desktop. After a bit of a struggle I am happy with its operation, it has a screen that shows just the sun and moon (elevation and Azimuth) from a nominated location. It does not make use of the internal GPS for the current location, so you have to define a new profile for places you may find your self checking it, in my case one for Work and one for Home.

I think this app will be a keeper for my casual interest in EME.
