About this app

DVSwitch Mobile is an Android PTT application for HAM radio operators to connect with other HAMs on the AllStarLink network. The application uses Wi-Fi or Cellular data networks and has high quality voice and an intuitive user interface. DVSwitch Mobile supports both smartphones and Network Radios with dedicated PTT buttons.

Configure your device to connect to a AllStar node by answering a few simple questions and you are ready to go. Click on this link to get information on setting up IAX (Asterisk) contexts:

Awesome, almost never hear the electonic digital audio you can hear when using a hotspot. Using this app has made ham comms even better, its almost always as clear as a phone call quality., except when someone is talking from the droidstar app, then you do hear it. One annoying thing is people's audio. While most sound normal, there are some people with really loud audio so you keep having to turn the volume up and down. (Note : its not a fault in the app, its people using a high mic gain)

App is fantastic. I am using it in DMR mode now with the analog bridge / md380 emu running on a virtual server and audio has been fantastic. Others report good audio. Even purchased a cheap $14.88 android prepaid phone to use just for this purpose, make a great addition and makes it possible to get on the air when a radio is dead or unavailable. Highly suggest that anyone who gets the app to spend the $1.99 to upgrade for the extra features as I did and support further development. Thanks...

This is a great little app that I have been using to access my allstar node whilst away from home. It took me a bit of fiddling around to set up, as I really had no idea what I was doing. But now it's up and running it is great. The DVswitch groups.io is also great for support when getting set up, I had answers to questions very quickly. 73 Robert 2E0ZWH
