The app is very simple to set up just needing an amateur radio callsign and the APRS passcode for that callsign (available on request from Cross Country Wireless).
Menu options include GPS position information including WGS84 locations for worldwide use and.OSGB locations for UK users. Another menu option also opens an OpenStreetMap based on the GPS fix.
The app can be used on any Android phone or tablet with GPS (and Bluetooth for use with a DigiTracker). If your Android tablet does not have GPS then the app will not work.
Note...the GPS on some Samsung phones doesn't work with this app. As a result the app is now provided free of charge for amateur radio experimentation.
The program can determine your location and outputs the list of the repeaters which are in your immediate environment and order by distance from you.
Using phone geolocation and manual set of coordinates or a QTH locator.
Application is offline mostly. You can load data about repeaters by WiFi and using it without connection to the Internet.
- A database of repeaters, echolinks and other (offline with possibility of synchronization);
- Adding of your own repeaters;
- Fixing of your carried-out QSO for each repeater;
- You can send to owner/keeper of repeater notification about any problems or other information;
- Showing date of the last carrying out QSO;
- Quantity of the carried-out QSO;
If you have an idea, a wish, the note with pleasure will discuss it with you by the specified e-mail.
Be careful if using this while driving a car. The app is not suitable for operating while driving.
By default, it shows APRS positions for HAM radio operators in the Nordic countries. Its user-interactions is mostly in norwegian. We may consider extending the area and translating to more languages, if there is interest. Contributtions and suggestions are welcome. The Polaric Server project is on GitHub.

The free version includes ads, and includes the latitude, longitude, and grid square with no internet access. It requires an internet connection to provide county, country, etc
Works with either phones, or tablets. Tablet version makes it easier to manipulate data, and do logging, even having the ability to see current data while logging on screen (See screen shots). ADIF files can be exported, including all information collected (Upgrade required). The feature list is improving constantly, now the ability to edit and delete log entries is included, along with a database of all LOTW listed call signs. Submit your logs to Logbook of the World and eQSL. LOTW includes putting the logged information from Ham Finder in to your contact, so you can travel from gridsquare to gridsquare and not have to do anything special to log your contacts! See a map of where you've made QSOs that are logged. Check the DXCC of the callsign you are considering logging. More coming soon!
The tool is US centric right now, but an effort is being undertaken right now to expand the list, particularly in offline operations. Already the local translation is used for States and Counties, and will likely be used for Countries soon. I'm working on improving the translations across the board, in fact, to simply work everywhere. If there's a particular location you'd like to see, or would just like to help improve this app, please take the survey at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1AfrKLXJwt9l1e-1Rew7G5WLyorcd_kLWyRmt82rw994/viewform
Note: This app will NOT help you find the best ham in your area. Sorry.

Many thanks to Michael VK5ZEA for making the promo video!
with Ham Radio Tools you can:
-look up callsign information!
-find current GPS location information
-save each contact to a log database stored on the phone
-review and edit each log entry
-search for keywords in different fields of the log entry
-calculate a simple quarter and half wave antenna length
-calculate the wavelength of a frequency
*** Now includes band limits for All Amateur Licenses ***
*** Calculators for Yagi, Dipole, J-pole, and Vertical antennas ***
*** Callsign Lookup is now included!!! ***
Callsign database is pulled from FCC website and updated daily! Callsign lookup works for U.S. callsigns ONLY.
Results include address, current and previous license updates, date of any updates, type and class of license, and even includes a link to the FCC database for even more details. Address can be mapped on Google Maps by tapping on the address.
The contact log allows you to store information about a completed contact including date, time started, time ended, frequency, mode, station, location, signal reports, and an area for general comments about the contact. A must for field day and general book keeping. Data and start time are filled in when starting the log to save time. End time can even be filled in automatically upon saving the log entry.
The contact log also comes with a handy search feature for quickly locating that one of a kind long distance contact you like to brag about. The search is focused on fields chosen by the user. If you want to search for a specific call sign select station as the search location and enter the call sign in the search box. Search keywords are CASE SENSITIVE meaning capital or lowercase letter DO matter.
A summary of the band limits for each class are included. Always refer to the official ARRL Band Plan when in doubt.
Some simple formulas and calculators are included for quick reference in the field and includes: Yagi, Dipole, J-Pole, Vertical antennas, and wavelength calculator.
NOW INCLUDES SOCIAL FUNCTIONS!!!! In the repeater detail screen, click the I AM HERE button. All users will see that you are on that machine! This can be used to find your friends or a machine with a user on it. In Application settings you can turn on APRS posting. This posts your current position with the repeater you are checked into. Soon there will be a repeater view that shows local checkins and another that shows worldwide checkins that have EchoLink or IRLP.
NOW INTEGRATED WITH THE EchoLink APP!!
Over 50,000 repeaters and growing in 178 countries! Now the Official Repeater Directory of Canada and Radio Society of Great Britain!
RFinder (Repeater Finder), the premier Ham Radio repeater locating tool for Amateur Radio operators, allows you to find repeaters all over the world based on your current location or a specified location. It allows sorting by distance or by Trustee callsign as well as filtering by band and radius in miles or kilometers.
Social functions! Let other hams know you are on a repeater through RFinder AND APRS (optional)! Find an EchoLink node in RFinder and call it with one click via EchoLink! Automatic data updates as you move!
Repeater Finder (RFinder) taps into The World Wide Repeater Directory, including IRLP and EchoLink information.
Our Amateur Radio repeater locator database is growing daily.
Access to the Directory is included for one year then it will be an annual subscription for $9.99, and your subscription works for all platforms...Android, iPhone/iPad/iPod, www.RTSYSTEMSINC.com and chirp.dansplanet.org radio programmers, as well as web.rfinder.net. Each purchase of a new platform advances your annual to a year from that new purchase date. Windows Phone is coming!
If we do not have your repeaters listed...please do not refund or give us a bad rating...add repeaters at http://add.rfinder.net or request an add or update from the app.. Don't forget LAT/LON (in decimal), use periods as decimals, please.
The application accesses our Worldwide Repeater Directory and scanner directory for Amateur Radio (Ham Radio) but only stores information for repeaters within approximately 80 miles (125 km) from your location on your handheld at any one time, saving you room on your device and allowing distance calculation and mapping features to operate smoothly. It uses geolocation either via cell tower triangulation, GPS or manual location entry (so you can look up the repeaters you will use on vacation or business trips, etc.).
If anyone has lists of Amateur Radio repeaters from their countries we would love to incorporate that into our database.
Worldwide IRLP and Echolink nodes.
We support Android 2.2 and above!
Planned Future Developments
Posting repeater checkins to Twitter!
Contact us if you need apps created that are back-ended by IBM Lotus Domino, or any other database! Yes, Tablets!
