DroidNavtex decodes NAVTEX messages from your receiver through the Android phone or tablets microphone or through a connected interface.
NAVTEX broadcasts worldwide on 518 kHz and 490 kHz using a data mode called SITOR-B (amateur radio (Ham Radio) operators might recognise it as AMTOR).
You need to have a receiver which can receive 518KHz or 490KHz SSB to use this app!!
Special audio filters even decode very weak signals through the microphone and make DroidNavtex a very affordable alternative to high priced decoders.

An “Auto mode” finds the frequency and the sideband of the Navtex signal automatically. With “Auto mode” turned off the frequency and sideband can be adjusted manually.
A built-in database stores the received messages which can then be filtered, sorted and shared. Messages can be deleted individually, in groups or by age.
To save battery power 7 timers can be set to start the app at a given time to decode messages. All timers can be set in local time or UTC.
