HamSphere DXCC Country MapThis Google map contains pins for all 340 countries on the ARRL DXCC list that are also valid countries for HamSphere. Each pin contains a country name, ham prefix, HamSphere prefix, ITU zone and CQ Zone.
After spending more than thirty-five years actively involved with ham radio, I spent the next twenty years with virtually no ham activity at all. For me, ham radio was just a fleeting, albeit fond, memory.
Honestly, at the time I left the hobby, I had every expectation that ham radio would die a natural death and cease to exist. Obviously, I was wrong and it appears to be more vibrant than ever.
Unfortunately for those of us living in areas where any external antenna is not a realistic option, ham radio is out of our reach. Luckily HamSphere 4 and virtual radio is changing this. While it is not “real” HF, it is an amazingly accurate simulation of “real world” propagation conditions! For this reason and many more, HamSphere is a great option for many of us.
Because of HamSphere 4 and my renewed interest in ham radio, I have purchased a 2m and 70CM Yaesu dual band transceiver which hopefully will allow me to get more involved in local ham radio activities here in the “valley of the sun.” Additionally, I have recently retired and have plenty of time for ham radio as well as other interests including photography plus post-processing, Arduino, 3D modeling using Blender and Fusion 360, Apple computers and devices, and enjoying outdoor activities in sunny and warm Arizona.
Talk to you soon on HamSphere 4.
