DVB-T dongles based on the Realtek RTL2832U, R820T (RTL SDR) can be used as a cheap AIS receiver.

This driver could be used by third party applications to implement AIS processing.

Keep in mind that this application on its own may not be very useful as it is just a driver.

In this Driver app a small demo apllication is included to test your dongle.

Supported dongles:
-- Any so called RTL SDR dongel,

Can't get the driver to stay connected to the sdr dongle, it disconnects within seconds of starting asking if I unplugged it . Spent hours trying to fix battery optimization following guides on dontkillmyapp, xdadevelopers, complete phone reset. You got any idea what to do to get it working Using Huawei P20 on EMUI 10, Andriod 10

I am sorry to hear that. As you already checked dontkillmyapp & co I am sorry to say that i also have no solution. You could install another RTL SDR apps like my Dump1090 to see if the behavior is similar. Thing is that as a small special app developer - there is not much I can do. Please write me a email info@ebctech.eu to keep me informed.

Works fine on my doogee s90, usb c otg, and sdr. Possible bug with reaching max messages limit but otherwise OK. Thanks!
