I'm thinking not, since the verbiage at the bottom of the page says:
"The table above shows information collected during the past several 
minutes from EchoLink "sysop" stations (those with a -L or -R suffix). 
The only stations shown are those which are *running EchoLink version 
1.6 * or above, and have entered location information on the RF Info tab 
of Sysop Settings."

We're not running Echolink software...so, while we're able to register 
our nodes, I'm thinking that the Echolink mother ship is studiously 
ignoring, for the sake of display, alternative software that speaks 
their language.

Hey, it's free as in beer, fwiw.  Not saying they shouldn't, but, that 
would seem to be the most logical explanation...because I'm sure that 
trying to support a published API for every version of off-brand, so to 
speak, software that wants to talk to their server is probably not going 
to happen any time soon.
