My favorite ham radio apps for iOS and Android

IOS-ANDROID-001

In November 2013, The Monitoring Times magazine published an overview of my favorite ham radio and shortwave radio apps for iOS and Android smart phones/tablets.

I just posted the full article on my shortwave radio blog, The SWLing Post.

Since I plan for this article to be a regularly updated, I struggled to decide whether to keep it here on QRPer.com or on the SWLing Post–I certainly didn’t want two copies and I didn’t want to separate the hobbies with two different posts. In the end, since I’m now the shortwave radio columnist for The Spectrum Monitor magazine, I decided the SWLing Post would be the best place to hold the post.

I plan to update this app list regularly to include new apps and remove ones which are no longer available. If you have a favorite radio app that isn’t listed, please comment on the SWLing Post. Click here to read the article!

    Just downloaded the Repeater Book app. Unfortunately, it only has VHF/UHF listings. Would like to see it include better repeater reporting: IE:, showing 220, 900, and 1.2 Meg repeaters……

    Thanks for the great list of apps. One that I find very useful when travelling is “Repeater Locator” for iOS. It is and always will be FREE and has had a few updates to it’s database since I installed it, so it is continually being updated.
