“goTenna” device converts smartphone into HT.


The device enables your smartphone to send and receive messages in the MURS band (151-154 MHz).

This little device may come in handy if you wish to talk with friends nearby.  “goTenna” is an app that runs on a smartphone or tablet that connects to goTenna via Bluetooth.  The system sends and receives messages in the 151-154 MHz range, the same frequencies as the MURS service.  The company claims the range at “personal height” will approximate the distance reached using a 2-meter HT (144 MHz) in simplex mode.  The most reliable range for the “goTenna” device will be a mile or less, although more range can be expected over unobstructed patches of water and desert.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
