I have been trying for a few years to get Echoloink author to
add DTMF callsign decoding (with then a copy sent over to the
APRS-IS each time somone checks in using it)..  No joy.

I have also been asking to cross-connect Echolink CHAT mode with
APRS messaging too, since then when I am listening to an
Echolink Conference net, I can send an APRS text message to the
Net control via his CHAT window on Echolink.  No joy on that
request either.

I am frustrated because these are trivial additions that could
seamlessly crossconnect info between these two very powerful ham
radio systems!
