A numerical method for finding spherically symmetric pseudobreathers of a nonlinear wave equation is presented. The algorithm, based on pseudospectral methods, is applied to find quasi-periodic solutions with force terms being continuous approximations of the signum function. The obtained pseudobreathers slowly radiate energy and decay after some (usually long) time depending on the period that characterizes (unambiguously) the initial configuration.
