[aprssig] Android can do analog APRS on 144.39

Now we are getting closer to my dream...

 

What I want is a Bluetooth connected to my TH-D72A that is able to
communicate with my Samsung 5 Player or other Android device in order to
plot the stations heard on the TH-D72A on a map on the Android device.  I
love the TH-D72A but it sure would be nice to be able to see the stations it
hears on a map and not have any wires dangling between the two devices each
small enough to fit in my shirt pocket while hiking or hunting.  As far as I
know, there is no way of accomplishing this feat.

 

If there is, please enlighten me since I am eagerly awaiting such a
Bluetooth device...

 

Thanks,

FWIW, you can also connect to a TNC using the serial port mode of Bluetooth.
I have a bluetooth<->serial dongle that I attach to a TNC, and do APRS from
my android tablet with APRSDroid using a KPC3+ and a Yaesu VHF radio.  Works
like a charm.  I usually demo this during my APRS presentation.

But since you are only doing APRS in Android, you are not doing analog
regular APRS on 144.39mhz either.


Just a little plug: the APRSdroid application for Android has an analog APRS
modem these days, you can wire it up to your HT from the speaker/mic jack
and have it transmit *and* receive on 144.39.

Most don't use it, but it can be done.
