Here is the paragraph I wrote about the chat in my February logs.
MW / FM/ TVDX CHAT: For
many months now, a group of us have been in regular contact on a live
DX chat, which has proved amazingly worthy for sharing MW DX logs and
tips. The benefit of this over traditional postings of logs on say a
notice board, is that we are all LIVE. It is so nice to have a dedicated
group of enthusiasts who are happy to share dx loggings in such a fashion.
Of course it seems there are other DXers who for some reason best known
to themselves, do not like to share their dx tips, but simply publish
them at a later date.
We are certainly not a Perseus users only group, as has once been asked. True there are a number of Perseus users on the chat, but not exclusively.
We also have a public DX Cluster, which can be accessed via my links page. Anyone (within reason) can enter the cluster and read DX tips only. This part of the chat is exclusively for dx tips. No chatting is desired in this chatroom.
A new user has to be asked in to the MW1 chat room. This is not public, which serves to keep out any riff raff. All that has to be done to be asked in, is send a skype message to tvdxrools, or scottish_dxer. The beauty of the skype chat is that no one person really has to be on line for the chat to work. And no one person "owns" the MW1 chat.
The requirements are a piece of free software, SKYPE. Install, and create a user name. Once in the chatroom, a dxer can bookmark the chat which is titled MW1. Then it is simply a case of clicking on the bookmark at a later date to come back in.
We have regular chats about dxing in general, etc with our "members" in Scotland, England, Holland, Belgium, Norway, Sweden, USA and even Australia.
