Ratings and Reviews
I don't have any problems and can get into our club repeater on vacation. The reason why there are problems connecting but not receiving some repeaters is the software problems at the repeater site and the owner needs to make sure the software is working for the IPhone platform.
Works and works well
Those complaining “ripoff” over the EchoLink licensing verification procedure are only bolstering Echolink’s commitment to keeping this app safe and legal. IMHO, if EchoLink is willing to go to the FCC website for you to DL your ticket for only $1, it’s a bargain. If you balk, you probably aren’t familiar with doing it yourself b/c you are unlicensed and not eligible to use EchoLink anyway.
I am a brand new Ham and I just downloaded this app on the very first try made a very fun contact with Okinawa Japan! I had a great conversation with a gentleman for almost 40 minutes. This app is what it is but nonetheless it is a useful tool and I find it very enjoyable. Looking forward to future updates and more fun on Echolink.
