About this app

MagicSDR makes it possible to interactively explore RF spectrum using panadapter and waterfall visualization, demodulate and play AM, SSB, CW, NFM, WFM signals, collect frequencies. Built on the principle of plug-in architecture, MagicSDR - powerful and flexible next-generation SDR (software-defined radio) application. Typical applications are dx-ing, ham radio, radio astronomy, and spectrum analysis. Explore the spectrum everywhere!

MagicSDR processes signals that are streamed over the local network from the rtl_tcp server, which is running on the host computer.
The smartphone itself, on which MagicSDR is running, can act as a host computer.

To start playing with MagicSDR, you need to set up a server on a host computer to which SDR peripherals (rtl-sdr dongle) will be connected or connect SDR peripherals directly to a smartphone via a USB OTG cable. To try application without SDR peripherals, MagicSDR can emulate a virtual radio device.

Support Hardware:
- RTLSDR dongle
- Any other radio that supports the rtl_tcp server
- Hermes Lite
- Airspy R2/mini/HF+, SDRplay RSP via MagicLink
- SpyServers

Main features:
- Wide band spectrum view
- AM/SSB/CW/NFM/WFM demodulator
- Frequency bookmarks
- Audio over UDP for external data decoders
- Record audio

Feedback and bug reports are always welcome.

No radio device detected. I have the RTL-SDR plugged in and select MagicSDR selected in the driver. There's nowhere to actually select a radio device. I found the 3 dots for settings but the only device adjustment there is for sound. Only the default setting is there. My RTL-SDR dongle works with other radio apps. I am using a S22 Utlra

Let me get this straight and in order for me to use this app I have to upgrade $12 to use my hack RF doesn't make any sense what's the point of using the app if you can't use your own device I don't want to use a server device
