WM App that measures/logs gsm signal strength
Written in Win32 C++ it's lean, mean, rather basic, but it does the job. It requires a phone with GPS, as it calls the Microsoft intermediate GPS driver.
Once it is running, it checks the GPS and phone status every 5 seconds. If the signal strength has changed since the last reading, it writes a record out to \SIGLOG.TXT in the root directory of your device, in the format:-
Latitude,Longitude,Signal Strength,Mobile Country Code, Mobile Network Code,Location Area Code, CellID eg.
In this case the 090 is the signal strength, 0 to 100
