US Ham radio where are you on Hamsphere 4.0

On HamSphere 4.0 we have a WAS award, this working all states is really difficult to win for opérators outside of North America.

I am on HS4 since 2014 and i still need 6 states to get this WAS award.
Its realy stange because they are 800 000 amateur radio in USA. Only few on virtual ham radio via internet even this program is also open for non ham radio operator. The call for these operators are 2HS for USA, 9HS for Canada like on 11 meter.
Virtual ham radio via internet is realy simple, you just need a computer, internet and a microphone for computer like a headset. Its really réalistic with propagation and yagi antenna, QSL cards, awards, contests, etc.
You can have a free trial for one month even you are not in the US !!! http://hs4.hamsphere.com/download I hope to have a QSO soon with you especialy if you are in the rares states of United states of América !
