The hams.live system consists of two main elements, client software on a user’s computer and web server elements in a common domain that help users identify and efficiently manage and connect to hundreds of freely available Software Defined Radio receivers (SDR Sources) worldwide. SDR Sources by design can easily be accessed with only a web browser, and some have tried doing this. The chance of receiving information from a transmitter potentially increases greatly if there are  SDR Sources in place at location(s) with favorable radio propagation conditions. Finding the best available SDR Source for a given situation has become a challenge for many. Setting SDR Source common frequency/mode to match a transmit station, adjusting settings and comparing signal strengths is complicated….but not with hams.live!
