    Paired with a phone and 2m HT I'm able to keep in touch with family outside radio and cell range. APRS and APRSdroid almost always works. HamSats might even expand that coverage but I'm still learning.

    Pretty good little app, would def be better if it converted the message output from weather stations in a more human readable output

    Great app. I've been running it for several years, both via APRS-IS and via AFSK through a VHF handheld. I even got it running on an AndroidThings beta for Raspberry PI, but that was sort of a dead end (no fault of the author, AndroidThings is IoT-oriented whereas Android for a phone is oriented for general purpose computing). That being said: Any ham who is complaining that they need a passcode for this app and one hasn't been forthcoming from Georg just needs to Google harder. APRS key generation is open source and there are several websites that will generate it for you from your call.

    I think the app is probably pretty good.. but I cannot get them to give me an account.. I am an extra licensed ham.. what a pain. Once I actually get access I will re-rate..

    Payed for this app, can't get it to work on my ZTE Blade "phone". I want this app "up and running" NOT a refund. Thanks a lot Georg for a really "great" experience. DE K7DFA
