If you like space or astronomy, you will like this ISS locator app.
ISS Detector will tell you when and where to look for the International Space Station or Iridium flares. You get an alarm a few minutes before a pass. You will never miss a pass of the International Space Station and you will never miss the bright flashes of the iridium communication satellites. ISS Detector will also check if the weather conditions are right. A clear sky is perfect for spotting.
Extensions will enhance the functionality of ISS Detector. With an in-app purchase you can add comets and planets, amateur radio satellites and famous objects, like the Hubble space telescope or the Chinese space station Tiangong.
• Overview of the coming passes
• Weather conditions for perfect sightings
• Radar screen with path indication
• Current location on a map
• Detection of Iridium flares
• Notifications and Alarms
• Share sightings with whatsapp, twitter, gmail, email etc.

ISS Detector combines data from Nasa, Heavens-above.com, minorplanetcenter.net and weather from yr.no.
For information of glSDR and the servers, use the About menu.
The first client that connects to a server is in master mode, and has control over the vfo and other controls so that it can tune and change bands and frequency etc. Subsequent client connections will be put in slave mode where the slave clients can only listen to the audio and watch the spectrum and waterfall in passive mode. When the master disconnects, the next slave in line will become the new master. When there are many simultaneous clients, the network bandwidth may be exceeded and some slaves will not have audio. You can see the master/slave status of your connection in the Title bar.
There is automatic Rx IQ Correction that you can enable/disable via the DSP tab. Note that you should enable Rx IQ Correction only for servers connected to IQ based SDR hardware (eg Softrock, UHFSDR), but NOT for direct sampling hardware (eg Perseus).
It has better display for high bandwidth servers. These servers have sampling rates of 480 ksps or more thus the spectrum/waterfall displays a wide bandwidth.
Minimum of Ver 8 is needed for new versions of servers with a revamped Local Oscillator Offset mechanism.
Ver 9 has spectrum/waterfall zoom feature. Use pinch motion to zoom/unzoom. I have found it easier to put one finger in a fixed position, and then zoom/unzoom by moving the other finger.
Ver 10 has improved drag tuning taking into account the zoom factor.
Ver 11 has been tweaked for backward compatibility with Android 2.2 devices.
Ver 12 has Spectrum Averaging options and also one FMN filter at 80khz for listening to Wide Band FM Broadcasts.
Ver 13 has more Spectrum Averaging levels.
glSDR has TRANSMIT capability in voice modes, ie SSB, AM, NBFM etc. However, you need to supply the User and Password to enable transmit when connecting to a password protected server (ie ALL the public online servers). Also, it requires that your device is capable of MIC input at 8khz sampling rate. DO NOT install this version if your device is not compatible !!!
Version 25 has FILTER MENU updated swhen MODE changes. The zoom action is also magnified when unzoomed or at low zoom so that you can zoom "faster" initially.
Version 26 has been tweaked to support Adreno GPU based devices by working around some issues with 24 bit color transparent overlay surfaces in Adreno driver.
Version 27 has the waterfall initialized correctly.
Version 28 has bugfix for band specific frequency after changing from a slave connection to a master connection.
Version 29 has a customized View of the FILTER MENU to indicated the currently selected Filter.
Version 30 has a customized View of the SERVER MENU to indicated the currently selected Server.
Version 31 has an easier to understand error message when a Server is unavailable.
Version 33 has a MASTER menu button that can take over a server as the master connection, provided you have the User/Password set for the server. The User/Password is usually known only to the server owner.
Version 35 has minor bug fixes and a new MENU option for the arrow keys.
Version 36 fixes the bug when a blank Frequency is entered.
Version 38 has a MENU item for users to donate bitcoins to the project.
Version 39 has a DSP checkbox for RX DC Block. This eliminates or reduces the central spike in some radios from differential in the DC potential of the I and Q channels.
Version 40 has a "Donate Bitcoin" menu item for you to support this project. The bitcoins donated will go towards improving the number and quality of the backend servers and service quality.
Version 41 has improved stability to prevent crashes on fast rotation of screen orientation.

Some satellites carry radio repeaters that can be used by amateur radio from the ground.
This application helps the amateur to know the real time position of these satellites.
It shows on the map the position of the satellite, semi circle representing the approximate coverage as well as the user's position.
You can switch from the menu the selected satellite.
From the menu visible passes shown a window with two buttons on the top.
Pressing the right (circular arrow) visible passes are calculated for the selected satellite within 24 hours.
Pressing the left (arrow circular dot in the center) visible passes are calculated for all satellites for the next 3 hours.
Clicking on one of the visible passes entered the 3D locator.
The locator uses accelerometer, the compass of the device and the calculated data to show the position of the satellite on sky from observer's position.
That is, when we moves the device to the sky shows a red triangle in the position of the satellite and a dotted line showing the pass.
The app calculates the orbits from the current time of the device and TLE data that www.celestrak.com obtained.
The internet is used to get the maps and update TLE data.
If you like the app you can make a donation to the developer from the menu extensions.
Option to manually include the TLE data in a file on the SDCard with satellites that the user wants is added.
For each satellite include 3 lines like these.
1 24792U 97020A 13350.44946552 .00000550 00000-0 18933-3 0 6234

From the preferences menu of the main screen mark the check
"TLE data from file in SD"
For now, this option is only available to donors users.
The first time you do not get frequency data automatically.
Frequency data from the window "visible passes"
In each satellite pass, if a letter F appears in blue,
When pressed frequency data for this satellite are deployed.
Data is obtained automatically the first time from:
If you want to update later will be done by checking

Amateur radio is also called ham radio in certain countries. It is a hobby and self-training. The term "amateur" is used to differentiate it from commercial and professional two-way radio services. Amateur radio operation in the United States is licensed by the Federal Communications Commission. In the United Kingdom by Ofcom. All countries are coordinated through the International Telecommunication Union. An estimated two million people throughout the world are regularly involved with amateur radio. (Wikipedia)
565+ Ham Radio Terminologies in a vast array of Multiple Choice Quizzes, Flash Cards, and a handy Android sized Dictionary for easy learning on the go.
Even though Morse Code is becoming increasingly popular around the world in underground pop culture, it's astonishing to know that 99% of the people of the world either do not know Morse Code or even care that it exists. For you lucky few that have come to realize or even imagine the benefit from being able to communicate with others via eye blinking, table tapping, or smoke signals then this app will be an invaluable asset to you as you study your way to becoming a Morse Code ninja.
*****Please be aware that this app uses your device's vibrator to play the Morse code pulses. If your device does not have a vibrator such as the motorola Xoom or if your vibrator is disabled in some way you will not be able to use the app. When I get some spare time I plan to update it to use a variety of methods for playback, but for now please be aware of this limitation.
This app was designed for tablets and tested on a Nexus 7. Works on medium and higher resolution devices as well.
Includes all three complete question pools (and lifetime updates):
* Technician (effective until June 30, 2018)
* General (effective until June 30, 2015)
* Extra (effective until June 30, 2016)
Install the free version to try it out.
