I've been using it for awhile.There never seems to be very many ops on it though.Sometimes when I'm there I'm the only one showing in the list.It would be nice if more people got on board.

The thing is with Hamspere It keeps changing its format, And I'm personally not keen on the fake QRM, I can here it for free on HF, It is true that people can hide their online status but if you wish to QSO why would you, FRN and EQSO are much simpler, and CQ100 if you wish to pay the Dollars, I know the guy has taken time over the setup of it and building a server but why keep changing it, there is a saying over here in the UK it goes "If it ain't broken don't fix it"

That's true.It has 40m and 80m on it now.When I first got it,we had 11m and 40m.
Anyways,the contest on the 14th was fun to participate in and,to be honest,a program like this may spark some folks into getting licensed and on the air for real.I was quite surprised how well the licensed operators accepted the un-licensed operators(aka: me Very Happy ).

On another note,it's too bad that the Echolink and CQ100 people don't have 'RX only' versions of their programs available.I would love to be able to listen in to see what the VHF/UHF amateur bands are like in other places.2m is pretty quiet here most of the time and 70cm is basically non-existant.There's only one repeater on 70cm(444.300) in my area and I have heard nothing from it other than a robotic voice giving a time/ID announcement.There are a couple of 2m repeaters but they lie mostly dormant except for the nightly check-in net that only lasts about 30 mins.

If you want to have a listen to a Busy Ham Repeater In Manchester UK try www.gb3pz.com this site runs 24 streaming audio and there is usually always someone on there having a Ragchew just follow the listen links, you may be better off in Internet Explorer as it doesn't like Firefox
