The Yaesu FT-817 and Android make a perfect pair for the active ham running experiments in propogation
Well even if your not using your QRP Rig doesn’t mean you cant have fun! Pretty simple to set up but here’s what you’ll need:
-QRP Radio (I’m using a Yaesu FT817ND)
-Android Phone or PDA running Android 3.0 or better
-Install WSPR Beacon software from the play store (Yes you have to spell it all out)
-Install time sync software (Clock Sync off of Play store)
-Interface Cable (WOLPHILINK Interface for Ham radio Digital Modes on Android PSK SSTV WSPR RTTY JT65) I bought mine off of EBay https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89j66bclx1w
-Decent antenna Loop is preferred but not required.
Two great videos to help configure your WSPR Beacon app and FT817 Radio
