Virtual Ionosphere

HamSphere simulates a real Ionosphere with radio wave propagation, fading and distortion. Signals are bounced off a virtual Ionosphere and reflected to distant parts of the world. Listen to an audio clip from HamSphere and its "Shortwave" sound.

11 Virtual bands

Nine virtual Ham Radio bands including 6,10,15,17,20,30,40,80 and 160 meters. We have also included an 11 meter CB band.

The HamSphere transmitter works in DSB mode (Double Sideband Modulation) with a virtual power between 1 - 2500 Watts. Received bandwidth can be adjusted to 3.8, 2.8 and 0.8 kHz with the standard filters.
