It's all just 'virtual radio', you and everyone else on there are not using the radio spectrum at any point ...unless you have a wireless router
Wasn't there another similar system to this around? CQ100?

There's not too many excuses for not 'getting there' today in the U.K or U.S. (and a few other countries as well) and partaking in real radio. The modern licensing structure (for better or worse) is such that you can get on HF with a simple (and I mean 'simple') weekend course at most amateur radio clubs... even licences are free for life now.

cheers,
Andy
