In this video I show how to use your mobile phone as a spectrum analyzer by connecting an RTL-SDR to it with an OTG (On-The-Go) cable. Installing the apps including drivers is straight forward and doesn’t require a guide, as it’s like installing any other Android app.

For reception of Digital TV (DVB-T), the antenna should as instructed in the video, be placed outside for optimal signal quality.

The spectrum analyzer application should be able to even record signals as well, so if for example the ISS passes overhead and is transmitting, then you could pick up the International Space Station too, or several other interesting satellites too.
