Ham radio Android Apps

Android LogoI have been using a Droid for a little over a year now.  So I have accumulated a few android apps.  The following is a list that I have loaded for Ham Radio use and a few that I haven’t tried yet.


Callsign DB – Looks up call signs
EchoLink – Let’s you connect to Echo Link on your Droid
ElectroDroid- Very similar to Electronics Assistant only for your Droid
Ham – Call sign lookup and Solar Conditions
HFBeacon – Informs user which HF Propagation beacon is transmitting at the present time
IRLP Finder – Locate the nearest IRLP node to near your location
Scanner Radio – Listen to online radios, including ham repeaters using your Droid.

Some I haven’t tried:

Signals - Reference for 10 signals, Q-Signals, Morse Code, etc.
Ham Radio Study Guide – Amateur Radio Question Pool
HamSatDroid – Amateur Radio satellite pass prediction
Amateur Radio Call Log - Basic Ham Radio Call Log
EchoLink Finder – Find the nearest EchoLink Node
QTH Locator – Calculates and displays your current QTH Locator
Morse Trainer Light – Learn or improve morse code
Grid Locator – Locate Maidenhead Grid Location
NCDXF Beacon – Monitor NCDXF beacons
PalmVE – Take sample Amateur Radio exams and locate VE testing sessions
QSL Mobile Ham Radio – Functions include GeoLocation, Call Sign searches, etc.
HamLog – another logging program
DX Cluster – Live DX spots on your Droid
AE Morse Code Tutor – Learn Morse Code
QTH Locator – Displays current QTH using google maps
APRSdroid – Allows reporting of your position to APRS-IS networks

There are more available, just do a search for Ham Radio in the Android Market and you can download most of these for free.

    I have a droid tablet that the android app store says I don’t have a droid phone and wont download any of the ham apps. Any way you could send me the .apk files I can copy on manually?

    Sorry if anybody can answer to ae5nl@fuse.net
    I was able to get the hamsatdroid program on and working. YEAH!
    Would appreciate any other help.

    I haven’t used the site, so I can’t vouch for the safety of it. Look at http://www.freewarelovers.com/android/apps.

    You seem to be able to download most of the apps there as .apk files.

    You might also try Ham Finder, https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.kd7uiy.hamfinder . It’s a nifty tool to figure out where you are (County, State, Country, DXCC, GridSquare), as well as a decent logging tool.
