If you have the Teamtalk client installed,
click here to enter the HBCA chat room.

Note: we now recommend TeamTalk 5. If the link doesn’t work, try the steps listed further below for a manual setup.

Teamtalk by Bearware

First time participants will need to visit the Bearware web site to download the client software. Versions are available for nearly all computers and devices. Windows, Macintosh, Linux, Android, and iOS.
For detailed download and installation instructions click this link: Getting Started With Teamtalk. Note: this is a short PDF file designed for TeamTalk4, but it can still help you to get set up, and make a few basic tweaks.

Manual Settings

We use the public TeamTalk servers, and for privacy sake the links to the chat rooms require a password. The links above have all the login information built into them, so it’s an easy one click way to join the chat.

For iOS users, or others having trouble with the preconfigured links, you can still join the chat with these steps.

  1. Open the Teamtalk5 client.
  2. Connect to the TeamTalk Public US Server:
  3. Look for, and join this room: HBCA
  4. Enter this password: vet
  5. Enjoy the chat.
