Welcome to the September 2011 Edition of the HamSphere News Letter.
In the last 3 weeks beta 3.0 has been active and tested. Thank you to all that participated during this testing process and reporting issues (bugs) regarding the new version.
The Installation of the software is simply; save the jar file to your Desktop and run from there. No more need to unzip / rename...Just save!! Double click the ICON!!
You will find many features that have been added and some familiar features that have been modified. The Sound & Feel is the same using the new modular platform with the three servers TEXAS (1), SWEDEN (2) & LONDON (3). It will be exciting and interesting for you as you explore and have QSO:s.
There is a new HELP button in the HamSphere 3.0 Transceiver. It will guide your through the new functions and buttons.
PINs / Passwords
Some requests that come to HamSphere Support are "I have lost my Password".
In the new 3.0 version you will have a link called "Lost password" that will help you to generate new password. Otherwise you can always use the link http://www.hamsphere.com/password
