IRCA
Well, they were predicting a geomagnetic upset. But, not yet. Still pretty lively this morning.

pretty darn good audio (all of it understandable by a native speaker, at least briefly):


774 JOUB 1422UT


1575 VoA powering in at 1439UT with man in Burmese per announcement at 1430UT; exactly the same as yesterday


Reasonable audio at times during the period (much of it understandable by a native speaker, though often battling with splash or noise):

567 JOIK //594 1436UT

594 JOAK 1417UT

774 JOIB 1405UT

972 HLCA 1430UT


not so reasonable audio, occasional words or phrases in splash or noise could be understood by a native speaker:

603 HLSA ballad 1431UT, along with another station; ID'd a couple of minutes earlier //558

1548 4QD man talking to another man on phone, DU English, 1432UT. Still pretty good on north Flag; high angle of arrival?


Burbles in the splatter and noise (if lucky, language might be guessed at by cadence of talk, or parallel established by changes in talk or music)

531 JOQG woman talking //594 1427UT

558 HLQH //603, usual ballads 1427UT

612 JOLK looking for parallel for 1548, instead, man talking //594 1432UT

621 woman talking, Chinese intonation 1407UT; brief visitor, then gone

639 CNR1 woman //6175 1436UT

657 N. Korea with orchestral music and woman operatizing, 1420UT; only up for a couple of minutes, but grabbed //3320

666 JOBK man talking //594 1438UT; hum on channel also.

945 CNR1 //639, woman talking 1424UT

1098 CNR1 //1593 1425-6UT, woman and man

1242 woman talking Japanese intonation 1426UT

1287 woman talking, Japanese intonation 1419UT

1422 man talking, insistent sounding Japanese? 1433UT

1503 JOUK music //594 1435UT

1557 man talking, Chinese intonation 1434UT

1566 man talking Chinese intonation 1429UT


Strongish het, no or "near imaginary" audio (either undermodulated or ravaged by splatter)

693 702 711 729 738 864 828 837 918 1206 1323 1386 1494 1539 seemed to be Asian;

1611 seemed to be DU

Live DX spotter / chat system *show of hands*  View Printable Version 
Tuesday, March 12 2019

IRCA
Nick, I can answer that. During MW DX seasons about 5 or 6 years ago, I was a regular -- almost nightly -- visitor to the #mwdx room on Starchat.net. 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). Just for grins and giggles, I tried again this evening, and could not even get past Starchat.net's homepage. When I typed "mwdx" in the search page, it wasn't recognized as a room. So Starchat.net isn't an option anymore, at least not for me.

A couple years ago, I found librairc.net/chat, and was able to get #mwdx going as a room there. I did let a few folks know about it, and some, like Shawn and longtime IRCA member Tom Laskowski in South Bend, Indiana, were able to find their way onto it. Others could not, so I gave up pursuing it.

Tonight, however, I have found something that I think will pass muster. One simply goes to librairc.net's sister page, http://www.chanops.org. 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.
And the best part is....no registration required!

Crossing his fingers and hoping this will work,

Thanks for the reply on this Rick. I did a bit of nosing around also, and
used the Icechat client to check into Starchat. Trying #mwdx yielded:
"this channel has been forbidden: CLOSED", so that is history, apparently.
Pity, as I think some sort of archive existed as well?

best wishes,

Nick
