About this app

The WSPR Beacon App is made to send WSPR signals using your Android smartphone/tablet as a signal source. All you have to do is use the audio out of it and pair it with the audio in of your rig (and set it to VOX).

All you ha to do is:

1) Set your CALLSIGN

2) Set your LOCATOR or press the GPS button and have the app automatically calculate it based on your position. Please allow a few seconds for the GPS to get exact coordinates.

3) Set the POWER LEVEL so that it matches your rig output power

4) Select the BAND (optional). This is only to have handy the frequency value to set on the rig.

5) Set the TX FRAMING. This allows you to set how ofter the WSPR will be sent. By default the WSPR is sent only once.

6) Select the BASE FREQUENCY. It can go from 1400Hz to 1600Hz and by default it is 1500Hz

7) Press START

The app will wait for the next frame start before sending.

So you only have to make sure that the clock of your smartphone/tablet is synced.

By pressing the REPORTS button you can monitor, filter and share reception reports. By pressing the MAP button, the app will open the related WSPRnet.org map page to view reports.

Fantastic WSPR rig control app! Runs fine on the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, Android 12 with USB OTG adapter and the MiniproSC. Only bug is not storing callsign and grid square between uses. Would also be nice to be able to set the screen to remain on when in use. Otherwise, makes a compact mobile setup when combined with the Yaesu FT857D. Planning on some WSPR road trips now!

Great App! Simple to use and very effective. I set this up on a Huawei tablet with a usb sound card and an OTG cable with my uBITX radio and I've had my signal heard in, amongst other places, Brazil, Antarctica and Tasmania.... All with 2 Watts or less. The only thing that could make this better was if it could receive and decode WSPR signals...but I've given the App 5 stars because it deserves it. Looking forward to using this mobile...👍

This is great! I just installed this on my phone, connected the Wolphi-Link between my phone and a Yaesu FT-857d and let it start sending out beacons. I'm being heard on both coasts of the USA from my location in East Texas, as well as Hawaii, Iceland, and Brazil! I wish it could receive as well, but I'm thrilled with what it does.
