This is pretty cool, it does strangely feel like using a radio. I was reaching for the squelch button lol. All the QRM from my neighbours BT hub and TV wont stop me now muhahahaha

Re: for when the prop has died for the day!


I think it's an excellent idea, and I'm a member.

You do, of course, need to have a microphone wired into the computer, and I used a conventional CB microphone, as it 'felt better'...

I did have problems though and haven't used it for a while now - the problem was pulsing and chopped audio, as though insufficient data was able to come down the line despite my connection supposedly offering twice the speed required by Hamsphere.

I do like the band noise, and the way QSB is rendered on the stations - a very good introduction to amateur radio for those without the real hardware.

Also good fun even if you do have the real hardware...
