UI-View is an APRS application for Windows. 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. The host mode support means that UI-View can be used with an extremely wide range of packet hardware and allows up to 16 RF ports to be used.
UI-View has a full-featured internal intelligent digipeater.
UI-View has full support for connecting to APRS servers on the internet.
UI-View uses bitmap images for its maps. Also, the 32 bit version has full support for Undertow Software's Precision Mapping CD atlas, allowing you to zoom to street level anywhere in the USA.
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.
If no host mode is selected, then UI-View32 needs its own TNC. The TNC should be in terminal mode, and you must configure the other comms options to match the settings of your TNC.
When UI-View32 starts, the settings in the [INIT_COMMANDS] section of the selected command file will be sent to the TNC. You should select the most suitable command file for your TNC, and the Edit button allows you to edit the commands.
The TNC must have monitor on and the monitor mode must include information on the frame type in the frame header.
When UI-View32 closes, the settings in the [EXIT_COMMANDS] section of the selected command file are sent to the TNC.(this is only true if you click exit from the file menu.)
Host mode KISS
If you select KISS mode, then, besides configuring the TNC comms settings you must also click the 'Setup' button and configure the TNC KISS options. Note that in KISS mode handshaking will always be set to NONE.
Host Mode AGWPE
To use this mode, you must be running the SV2AGW Packet Engine. One you have selected AGWPE, you can click the Setup button and configure the TCP/IP connection. For a connection to AGWPE on your own PC, the default settings should be correct.
Having configured Ui-view it is now ready for service.
Whether it WX, display only, or full TX/RX/internet. Ui-view is more than capable.
With a little additional setup it can even be configured to act as a digi to relay packets.
With plug-ins, Ui-view can receive NWS warnings and plot them on the map. Others allow you to keep a database of tracked stations over a time period and then see where that station was at a given time.
Ui-view can really shine in the emergency or event communications role.
