So, with Day 2 starting since Iann's PirateRadio2011 chat went down, wanted to give a status for me here in Central MD.
With the help of several people, and the availability of the Europirate Chat on the Shortwave Pirate Radio Chat page of HFUnderground, I have been able to see Iann's PirateRadio2011 chat page again.   I can access it via DoctorTim.GE link, and the HFUnderground link.  But both accesses are limited to a passive view of the chatroom--I can't actually log in and participate in the chatroom.  I have had some parallel computer issues, but the system is working well now--but the Chatroom access isn't.  I don't know who is in charge of Iaan's Chatroom, but something will have to be done, and hopefully soon, to get the room back up to full abilities.

Yes, this is still the case -- we can see it passively but not log on or change our ID...

After trying three different methods of accessing the Iann RadioChatroom, I have had the same results in each case.  In all of them, when I try to connect, either to log in, or to change my avatar and name, I have 'connection problems'.  So the problem is in Iann's arena--it's not allowing people without direct access to the chatroom to have active access to it.  I can monitor the chat with no problem in 3 different ways--DoctorTim.de, radiomarlininternational.com, and hfunderground.com.  Until the problem is resolved by Iaan, I am stuck in monitoring, not participating.  Just hope the problem is resolved soon, or the function of Pirate RAdio Chat is transferred to a new host.

The trcoding link does not work from my location.   As dandan has noted, we can observe but not participate in the chat right now.  No sign in possible, or name changes.

I confirm that the chat is still not usable! Connection error when entering my name.
Without nick-name, I can see the messages for a few minutes, then disconnect.
Frustrating!

at 1200 UTC on 16 August, I can monitor the chatroom on 3 different websites, but none will allow me to log in or change my avatar name.  Others in the US have the same issue.  I'm going to stop trying...it's not worth the frustration.....

For some reason I'm able to post on Iann's site.
I have the same issues with the other links that dandan22, dxace1, and others in NAm have.
I'm on a Mac with the latest OS, using Safari with Flash enabled.

Xat.com which operates the chat groups has a support forum. Someone on there was complaining about a network problem. The advice was to clear their cache. https://forum.xat.com/topic/10895-xatcom-network-problem/

You could also go direct to their support team https://util.xat.com/support/index.php

I already tried clearing cache, it did not correct the problem at least using Firefox latest build.  I will try other browsers.

Yep, definitely worth a try. I hope you get a positive outcome.

(I have found that an older version of a particular browser works better than the latest edition when solving other issues; maybe that is also worth a try.)
