UI-VIEW32- APRS software (Remember to
register first, and honor Roger the author with a donation to cancer
Once you install UI-View32 and register UI-View32, shut it
down and go to http://wa8lmf.net/aprs/UIview_Notes.htm
and do the appropiate changes listed there to UI-View32.
UI-View32 is an older progrem, but with the changes listed, it will
work very well.
NOTE: When using AGWPE or other computer PTT control methods, set the
time-out-timer function in your rig as low as it will go, or if not
equiped, build a PTT time-out-timer into your interface! Computers have
been known to "hang up".

Additional software and resources
Please be advised, that as you setup UI-VIEW32, by hitting your "F1"
key, help files will pop up for each window you are in. This is true
for each and every setup window.
The Online setup guide for AGWPE is a must read. AGWPE is a little hard
to setup, and does take a fairly fast computer. Take your time and
double check your settings. Make sure your input and output volumes
selections and levels are correct within Windows Volume control.
Dedicated users will probably want to use a TNC, which is a little
easier. If you are using a TNC, you will probably need to become
settings. UI-VIEW32 will "set" it for you, but even then, sometimes a
command file edit is needed to make it work at it's best.
