I’ve had a little V dongle for a while and it works as a reasonable receiver but is let down by my puny Atom based PC. It gives me the Norman Collier effect. So I was very keen to try out some software from Martin Marinov that lets you use your Android tablet / Phone that replaces your PC. Low and behold it works and at £6 is a lot cheaper that buying a new PC.
I have a Google Nexus 7 and you’ll need a way of connecting the device to your mini USB socket on the tablet but there are plentiful from eBay or Amazon for minute sums of cash. I suspect some may be better than others but if it works it works!
There is a stinge-ware version that has a few limiting features but I would recommend trying it out and paying out. Its only the price of a couple of pints!
The software sets itself up and downloads a driver (from the same developer). My first attempts had a few issues with the software not finding the device at first but a quick reset had it all ship shape in no time. All in all a great App and a lot less hassle than the SDR set up I originally had to do.
