If you’re not that much of a technology person and don’t really know how intricate the technology can be but still would like to learn, then you ought to know RF Signal Tracker.

RF Signal Tracker is basically an application for engineering purposes which deals much about on the dot hand-held drive tests using just your phone. As you have the application turned on on your phone while you drive or walk, it will show you the Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI) for your phone. The location of the cell site is also displayed and illustrated as to how far it is from your location.

When tracking is pretty much done, you can save all the data you gathered and as CSV or XML file on your SD card. RF Signal Tracker can also let you do your own site surveys now and even define your own site locations.

Hand-held, ad-hoc drive test app for the RF engineer on the go!

The Ad-hoc Drive Test App!

The RF Signal Tracker is an engineering application for doing impromptu hand-held *drive-test* with your Android phone. You can drive or walk a particular area and see the RSSI (received signal strength indication) for the phone as well as map the serving cell location*, and save that data to a CSV or XML file on your SD card. That saved data can be replayed, or you can import previously saved data for replay as well. A new feature added in version 2.2.0 is sectorized coverage bubbles. As you travel a sectorized cone is draw out from the cell describing the extent of the measured signal from that cell. This effectively draws the cells orientation, beamwidth and range. This feature ONLY works if the site location is know.

* Google or OpenCellID location services are spotty at best. Site locations are only guaranteed to show if the sites are loaded into the devices database.

App features:

- Map and record your color coded signal strength as you travel.

- Play back recorded data.

- Share current signal strength with Twitter, Facebook, whatever you can share with.

- Sector coverage describing orientation and beamwidth.

- One Cell Tracking to examine coverage of a single cell site.

- Sound and Vibe notification on handover.

- Serving cell located through Google, OpenCellID, or the users own custom site list.

- Export recorded data to .XML or .CSV files. Import older recorded data for playback.

- App to SD card

None Issues:

- Bit Error Rate displays -1. This is the number the Android OS is sending.

- CDMA devices are not entirely supported. This is due to the lack of a CDMA phone (and contract) on my part, not anything specific to the technology. So if you have a CDMA phone be aware it has not been tested by me.

- App uses an unsupported Google cell site location database which does not have very extensive 3G cell locations. The best solution is to load your own sites through a CSV file (see instructions), or set your device to use 2G technology only.

- Please remember you are using a phone, not a laptop. If you try to record hours worth of data, and/or play it back, unexpected things may happen.

System Requirements:

No special requirements
