I tried this tonight and it worked like a champ, except no one was in the chatroom except for me. I called a friend, and had him join me. It worked fine—but he has no interest in MW DXing…so no joy.
Who’s in? Let’s revive #MWDX…it’s a great resource!

About 2 years ago, I attempted to get back onto it, and was unsuccessful, as was Shawn Axelrod in Winnipeg (I think it was due to Starchat being powered by Java, which was having some sort of security issue at the time).

Once there, you'll see a homepage with a pair of fields -- one for a nickname and one for a channel to go to -- under "Think of a nickname..." Type in a nickname that you want to use, and you do NOT have to click the box underneath that says "I have a password". Then go down to the Channel field, type in #mwdx, and click on the Start button. THAT should get you in.
