KC3CDU’s review of Echoham

This app has a lot to be desired. For example, on windows there's an option called tools. On Mac, we do not have this option. As a result, we miss out on a lot of key benefits and features that Windows has that Mac does not.
While I find this a great piece of software, I do believe that there is a lot more to be desired. Mac operators of echo link need the same things as windows operators. Especially when we Mac operators wish to create a Symplex node or repeater node. SYSOP.
Because we are on Mac, we do not receive this benefit of the tools menu. I find this to be a major drawback from the application and an overall pain. I should not have to install a virtual machine on my Mac just to run the application. I'm a Mac user, not a Windows user.
Over all, it is an app that has a lot more to be desired, however noting as far as it has come, I must congratulate the developers of this application. I just pray that as an amateur radio operator, they will take my advice. We Mac users need a tools menu.
Please add this in a later update. Thank you, good day, and God bless you.

Good working app!

At first, my Apple wouldn't let this app work but somehow it fixed itself. Fully functional. I've been able to contact a number of stations, great audio! Thank you for this fine addition to my vast comuncations network!

Finally Works !

I have tried previous versions of EchoHam and EchoMac, and none of them have ever worked properly. This most recent version worked right from the get-go. Not sure what changed, but just glad it works.

And it works well!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your feedback, great to hear the app is working for you. It is possible the improved (automatic) router configuration has solved your issues.
