    Additional information...if you do not have access to an IRC client, we have a web site with an embedded client. Goto and you will be prompted to type in a nickname. Go ahead and type in your callsign followed by your first name so we know who you are (Example: WL7BH-Brandin). Once you have the information typed in go ahead and click the green button that reads "Start..." and you will be connected. Thanks again.

    I am using HexChat IRC client and I cant figure out how to connect to either address 1 or 2. I am new to IRC for this. HexChat has LOTS of networks that I can connect to but how to get to either address above mystifies me.

    If you are using HexChat, you will need to add the network. Click on the HexChat menu at the top left, followed by Network List. A window will pop up. Click on "Add" and type AlaskaNet followed by pressing Enter. Make sure that AlaskaNet is highlighted then click on the "Edit" button to the right. You will see a tab that has a server address on it that needs to be replaced at the top of that screen. Left click in there to highlight and make sure you have a cursor. Then type the address ( press Enter and then you are good to go. Click close at the bottom of the screen, make sure AlaskaNet is still highlighted on the Networks screen then click connect. If you have any further questions don't hesitate to ask.

    5 years later I either have a routing problem to or the service is no longer running.

    The domain is no longer owned by anyone. Therefore the service is kaput.
