Javecho is a project focused on providing a portable Echolink client that will work on all the OSes which Java SE runs on. It uses a Java based GSM codec which provides good quality audio (some say better than the MS Windows echolink client itself).
There are some unique features of Javecho which I put in place as some experimentation to see what kinds of things might be possible. Javecho uses a modified control link protocol which provides web page update/access between multiple Javecho users. It uses the poorly supported, built-in Java editor pane, but it does function for many simpler, basic HTML pages.
I'd like to solicit feedback from the echolink community on the viability of this project and more importantly, looking into interfacing it through DStar dongles to create an interworking environment. Additionally, adding video over D-Star/echolink or at least slow scan TV/fixed imagery transfers might be interesting.
What do you think Echolink could do more/better/different?
