Great for listening, but kept crashing I'm a licensed Ham operator so I found listening to the bands was fun. They were often busy and I enjoyed hearing people far away talk to others even further away. Like England to China. I could never have done that with my real ham gear setup at home. Unfortunately, every time I tried to talk to someone myself, the program crashed. When I tried to use the spotting log to jump to a frequency, it crashed. After half a dozen crashes while just trying to use the program, I gave up and uninstalled it.
The best As a licenced radio ham gw4gja I found this to be a useful app when real bands were poor and provided a way to keep in touch with other radio hams. Plus unlicensed enthusiasts can also be involved which creates more interesting conversation. Certainly the best voip type system around for Simulated ham radio. Been using it sporadically for 4 years now and have used it successfully on mobiles, tablets, PC, s and Ipad. Also under Linux OS or win version using wine under Linux. Cannot fault it.
Great radio simulator A great simulator that works brilliantly on my galaxy s3 over 3G. Its the next best thing to real HF. Great for those without space for big antennas..
Great app for Android and for people who want to become a ham user the hobby is great and I really think this app would go a long way in teaching others how to get used to talking on a radio before they apply for a licence to use ham equipment very good overall and a great help to others. At least you can get to talk to people all over the world with this app you are not even allowed to talk on a ham radio unless you are licensed or looked over by a licenced operator but this app lets you build your own confidence to do just that great app
truly disappointed! you want to know what messes up a good thing! the fine print y'all talked about everything else but what it takes to enjoy this app! you gotta download the log you gotta do this stuff in the Qt card! You got to do a backflip on a moon to really enjoy this app! don't you think it would be wise to give people a heads up on what is all required to enjoy this! just one mans opinion uninstalled!
not good you have to register by giving your email address out before you can even see what it does, then its only a short trial, they should explain that in the description, its just very bad they don't. By law your not allowed to talk to other users over the air unless they are licensed or supervised by a licensee, so not sure how this could work, although it does say virtual, so I guess its just on a server somewhere, but who wants to play virtual radio when you can have the real thing? Disapointed.
