Hamsphere on iPhone

During my younger days as a unlicensed ham one of my favorite activities was to take my portable Realistic radio, climb up a hill of about 1,800 feet and hook the antenna to a quarterwave and start transmitting on 10 meters. Today with Hamsphere I can relive this activity without the hill and the quarterwave using the recently released Hamsphere for iPhone App. I was fortunate to be one of the beta testers of the application and now I have just loaded the completed version.

Tomorrow I am going around town to test the viability of the setup. I already do mobile transmissions on Hamsphere and it will be a completely new and interesting experience to tap the virtual ionosphere using the iPhone app. Let’s see what we can contact. Good QSL to all of us!
