Getting back on topic a bit, how much interest is there in an Android variant of WSJT-X?
I posted a similar query with an offer to undertake it on wsjt-devel about a week ago and heard… crickets(actually I did get one direct reply from someone who said there wouldn’t be any interest, he was right).
I’m a software engineer by trade with a background in native android development so I’ve got a reasonable idea of what’s involved. The actual algorithms are written in Fortran which makes things pretty tricky but my initial investigation is that it should be do-able. Most android devices support the needed hardware or support USB OTG cables for using compact audio devices.
However to do this right it’s going to be at least a few months of effort. I’m willing to put in the time if there’s a community around it but it’s hard to tell how much interest there actually is out there. This would be something that’s mobile-operation oriented, potentially even with a SOTA mode(since the activator is the only one needing to call out the summit).
Anyway, if there’s enough interest I can start digging into it, otherwise I’m happy to keep playing with my new KX3 :).
