"router problem" just means "doesn't love Macs."

Ok, so it works now and then. When it's in the mood, connections are quick. When it's not, it tells me that the ports aren't set up correctly, which of course makes no sense, as they evidently were "correct" 5 minutes ago. Husband, on a PC or Chromebook, doesn't get those messages, so I think the Mac interface is just a bit spotty.

When it works it's okay, but doesn't work most of the time.

EchoHam could be a decent app, but suffers very basic problems with working with just about any modern network situation.

Getting support is nearly imposssible. Developer is unresponsive. The only communications they responded with was to their "forum" which I can't register due to the ridiculous captcha plus half dozen other useless questions. Realizing the forum doesn't even show up half the time I try to access.

Now if you're one of the lucky people who can get this app to work, when it works it's just okay. It has no way of bookmarking nodes, and the use of the keyboard is really clunky (enter and tab keys don't work as expected).

It's unfortunate that there are zero alternatives to Echolink on Mac OS. If op gave two bits about this and provided some support behind this app, I'd be willing to throw some money at it. But as it is, it's not really worth your time.

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!
