Hi Mike !

Tested a Tablet Device under Win 8.1 for HamRadio:
"Odys WinTab 8 Windows®-Tablet 20.3 cm (8 Zoll) 16 GB WiFi Schwarz Intel® Atom™ 1.33 GHz Quad Core Windows® 8.1 32-Bit"
(IPS-Display 1280x800), owned by DF2FF Sven, buyed 2014 at

Tested for Use as portable SDR-Receiver :
SDR : ELAD FDM-S1 connected via USB
Software HDSDR( Has run perfectly, tested up to 1536 ks/sec

2nd Test : connected to Softrock-Rx v9.0, PE0FKO drivers.
external soundcard (Icon Cube USB, 2x 192ks/24Bit)
Software HDSDR. Has run perfectly, to some extent usable with "touch"

General problems : 1. not usable without a mouse : very high resolution of display (1280 x 800) and small size of just 8 inches prevents the use of "Touch"-mode at Windows programs. 2. USB seems to switch-off attached devices after some time (20 min ?), though energy-saving was disabled. 3. Device has just one USB-Port for battery-charging and data, so external powered hub necessary. (I was using a 7port hub at the tests.)
All in all a nice toy/gadget for portable Ham Radio activities. All
PC-programs that run on my Win7 PC did run OK on this device. No games
tested, just HamRadio related programs and a QRL-program for
oceanographic research probes.

Sorry for the off-topic post but I know there is a wide range of

I am looking for information on amateur radio apps for mobile phones
and/or tablets. The apps must be used for operating (LF, HF, VHF, or
microwave) rather than construction, for instance QTH locators,
callsign lookup, propagation, datacomms.

Do most Windows programs work OK on a Windows tablet, or even a
phone? Are there apps for iPad, Android or even Blackberry? What is
your experience with running apps on phones or tablets? Do you have a

Any help would be welcome. Direct emails please so the group is not
clooged up with off-topic posts (unless the software is OK for LF
