I’m not sure where the Hamsphere servers are located. The individual listed as the developer has a Ham licence, 5B4AIT, and lists himself as a “Swede living in Cyprus.”
Gosh, as long as the radio aspect of this operation is IMAGINARY, I would imagine my antenna array located somewhere in rural Summit County, Ohio. It would be a huge log periodic, steerable, at about 100 feet. That way if I change “frequency” there is no retuning needed and I can point the antenna to target specific audiences.
My power is adjustable from 10 watts to 2.5 kilowatts. Currently I’m running about 100 watts. You can watch the signal on the band scope rise and fall with propagation changes.
Did you notice much QSB (fading) of the signal? The simulation is to create all the effects you normally experience on shortwave signals.
The really fun part was seeing who is listening to my broadcast in the “Cluster” window. I was able to personalize the program by adding my comments directed to specific listeners during the 30’s music show which runs Saturdays between 2300 and 0000 zulu time. I was able to welcome each listener and talk to THEM.
I’m not sure what happens after today, the end of the 3 day trial period. I’ll keep you posted.
