In April 2016, I purchased a Logitech Wireless Marathon Mouse M705 (pictured left).
In July 2016, I purchased the Sony MDRXB950BT/B Wireless Headphones, a Logitech K750 Wireless Keyboard, and a Visio D32-hn-d0 32" LED TV (all pictured left)...all for use with the MacBook Air. I also set up a second monitor for Hamsphere - a Visio E231-B1 23" LED TV (pictured left).
In August 2016, I purchased a Sceptre X322BV-M 32" monitor to replace the older TCL LE32HDD20LBAA 32" monitor. (pictured left).
Also here is a recent picture of me taken in August 2016 at my Rode Podcaster microphone, along with my most recent Hamsphere QSL (pictured left).
Also, here is a screenshot taken in August 2016 of my most recent Hamsphere rig (pictured below), and my real-life Drake station (pictured below) where I do all of my Hamsphere radio work. Until, of course, I get an antenna up in the air.
On August 6, 2016, I worked my first CW station on Hamsphere 4.0...XE1YJL (QSL pictured below) using the Behringer USB audio converter mounted inside my CW memory keyer. I also received the Hamsphere 250 QSO Award (pictured below).
On August 14, 2016, the Island Hunters ARC applied for vanity callsign NA4DX. Hopefully, there are no other applicants and we will receive it.
On August 16, 2016, upon checking AE7Q's website on callsign applicants, we have no competition and should receive NA4DX on or about September 2, 2016!
On September 2, 2016, the club was indeed assigned the new vanity callsign NA4DX. We have already began working 80 meters.
On September 7, 2016, the club license arrived in the mail (pictured below). Also, many QSLS for Hamsphrre have been designed (one pictured on left). September 8, 2016: I am making plans to begin MW DX listening. This is basically listening to AM radio stations located as far away as possible. A likely AM receiver I am looking at is a Sangean PRD-15. Stay tuned for more updates. I have sold some unused shack items, including the Robyn T123B CB transceiver, an Astatic D104 microphone, a 2007 Mac Mini computer, and an Apple A1242 Keyboard. The sale of these items will subsidize the purchase of two AM radios: a vintage AM receiver and a more modern digital receiver.
On September 12, 2016, I ordered a partially-restored 1960 General Electric CT-109 Tube AM-FM Radio (Model T210B for the USA), pictured below. This is Phase I into my foray of AM Dxing. Phase II will be purchasing a Sangean PR-D15, the most sensitive digital AM receiver on the market! A tunable loop antenna should follow. Stay tuned!
On September 13, 2016, I ordered the Sangean PR-D15 (new), which will be my main DXing receiver.
On September 17, 2016, the GE Radio arrived! It had some trouble with the tuning rod. Still working on it.
On September 22, 2016, I received the Sangean PR-D15 AM/FM radio for my AM DXing (pictured below). Since I cannot hear much inside with all of the EMI/RFI noise, I will get some C batteries and try that, maybe outside.
On December 24, 2016, I contacted HI/VA7OO in Dominican Republic for my 100th country on Hamsphere 4. The Award is pictured left, and the QSL card is below.
