It was fun while it lasted but now that my Demo copy has expired I find that I’m restricted to Receive Only on the 40 meter band. Also none of the command line options or chat features work. I would think the “Broadcast” feature would be continued without subscription as that would seem to be a draw for the curiosity seekers to listen, enticing more to subscribe. Afterall, where else would Hamsphere find free programming for that purpose with no effort on their part.
I found the simulation interesting but not worth $35/year to have a noisey, low fidelity audio signal. The most interesting part was how you “tune” to different conversations just like a radio. I’d like more information on how that is accomplished with 1.8 mb of Java programming.
For those that can’t obtain an Amateur Radio License, it’s a great way to learn how to operate a radio and talk to the world. I however, have a license so it’s a moot point.
