ANNOUNCEMENT: Skywaves Live Chat now available for for Band 2 and Medium Wave

Post by Jim (Bournemouth) » 16 Apr 2016 14:18

Announcement: Live Skywaves chat.

In recent years, a number of us have used Skype messenger as a live "talkback" chat before/during openings. This has proved very useful. Skype has its issues, so we toyed with the idea of using a web-based chat to try and get more members involved, and we have come up with using Google Hangouts.

The first chat we are starting is dedicated to VHF and Band 2, as the Es season is just about to get underway. A MW chat has now been added.

The link is: https://hangouts.google.com/

You will need a Google account if you don't already have one.

Once in Hangouts, search for Skegnessdx (John F) or radioredcat (Andy) or post your Google account name on this thread and one of us can add you to the chat.

In the Skywaves chat, we request that you keep the live chat radio-related and on topic.
The use of bad language should also be avoided.

Please do not use it to wind up or antagonize other users - if someone is annoying you then please block that user - (you have the ability to do that).

Enjoy!
Jim, Bournemouth, Dorset. IO90BR.
