Shortwave Radio Related Internet Relay Chat (IRC)

Many shortwave and other radio enthusiasts hang out on the #wunclub IRC (Internet Relay Chat) channel. This is a place where you can chat with fellow listeners, as well as share monitoring catches in real time.

Joining the chat is fairly easy. You can use the online chat below until you get an IRC client. The Java chat requires a browser with Java enabled.

Click here to be taken to the #wunclub chat

There are many free and low cost IRC clients out there.

For windows, here are some IRC clients:

For the Macintosh, Snak is popular.

Next, you'll need to tell your client to connect to the Zirc network, which is where the #wunclub channel is hosted. Some clients will already have the addresses for the Zirc servers built in. If so, select one of them. If not, you'll need to add one or more.

irc.starchat.net is a good default server to use.

Next, have your client connect to the #wunclub channel. Once you're there, feel free to introduce yourself if you're new to the channel.

There are usually a few dozen people connected to the channel at one time, but not everyone may be around, lots of folks keep connected to the channel 24 hours a day, and maybe away from the computer (or sleeping!). The bulk of the users are from Europe and the USA, but there are users from other parts of the world as well

If you're interested in monitoring satellites, connect to the #hearsat channel.
