Ham Sphere has a way you can add a virtual amateur radio transceiver to your computer. After installing you can communicate with thousands of ham radio operators and radio enthusiasts around the world. The cost is 30 Euros a year (about $41.32 USD).
There is a free test period so I tried it out. It is very realistic and would be great for some hams that have a limited space to put up an antenna farm but it is a virtual ham radio transceiver and not real. I couldn’t seem to get over that virtual radio concept. I have no complaint with the product it works very well. If you think you might enjoy DXing with your computer then give it a free trial and see.
If you scroll down to the bottom of the page they have ham radio blogs and if you wish you can start your own blog.
