What is UI-View?
UI-View is an APRS-type application for Windows written by Roger Barker, G4IDE. It differs from most APRS software in that it isn't designed just to be used with TNCs in terminal mode. It also supports TNCs in KISS mode, AGWPE host mode and BPQ host mode. The host mode support means that it can be used with an extremely wide range of packet hardware and allows up to 16 RF ports to be used.
UI-View gives a map display of packet stations. It lets you see who is currently active on packet. It will show distances and bearings between stations. It can display reports from weather stations. It can display mobile stations who are using GPS attached to a TNC/Radio. It has a messaging system for chatting with other UI-View and APRS users. It is compatible with many aspects of APRS.
UI-View has a full-featured internal intelligent digipeater.
UI-View has full support for connecting to APRS servers on the internet.
UI-View has an open architecture. It is designed to make it easy for other software authors to write add-on applications that provide additional functionality.
There are two versions of UI-View:-
The 16 bit version will work on Win31, Win95 and Win98. It is supplied as "registration-ware". An unregistered copy is almost fully functional (the only restriction is that some of the IGATE functionality is disabled). Registration costs 10 UK pounds. The Registration section of the UI-View help gives full information on how to register, payment options, etc.
UI-View32 is a 32 bit version and so needs a 32 bit version of Windows - Win95, Win98, Win2000, etc. It is for registered users only. To be able to use it, you must have registered your copy of the 16 bit version.
