Ham Radio Live Show 256 shows a way to work a program that works just like Ham Radio does called “HamSphere.” ￼
HamSphere will work on your laptop, computer, tablet or smart phone allow you to “make calls” all over the world! It includes a waterfall display and even a spotting network￼ So you can try and work a specific area of the world and make contact with them!
All without a license.
Find HamSphere on your computer at: https://www.hamsphere.com/download.php
Plus, I set up the new Alpha Hextenna￼￼, Only 4 feet off the ground on Alphas optional (and best in Ham Radio) Tripod￼ And tried to make calls with it using the Ameritron ALS 1306 Amplifier at 1,000 watts of power.
Will it make a call at that low height with houses all around it?￼
Find out on this episode of Ham Radio Live￼ And then ask yourself just how powerful this antenna is if you work it activating a Park On The Air, or Summit On The Air!
Working anywhere with elevation for the Hextenna, or At the top of an extendable mast will give you a “Monster Antenna” Capable of working continents not counties.
It took me less than three minutes to bring it out of the bag and tune it BELOW 1.5:1 all across the 20 m￼ band.
It’s the best remote antenna in the world. And it’s “no tune” If you adjust it right with your antenna analyzer.

You can study for ANY of the UK Ham Radio License Exams at this link. But STUDY With a ham club or online company that specializes in helping UK amateurs pass their exams.
