Re: Steve w4epi and the group.



That's what I'm doing Steve.

I have UI-View32 run in AGWPE Host Mode. I have AGWPE supervise my 2 TNC's.
One is on 144.390 for APRS and the other is on 145.800 for ISS. The one on
ISS is even on a different computer than the 144.390! AGWPE is one of the
best kept secrets in the ham community. Most seem to think it is for sound
card tnc emulation. I've never used it for that. I use it as a TNC
"supervisor" that then allows multiple programs to connect to the same tnc.
I always have the 144.390 working with UI-View32, but at the same time I'm
running a copy of AGWTERM, so I can watch what  is going on the freq more
easily than with the internal monitoring of UI-View32. The TNCs run in KISS
mode. Since I have 24/7 DSL, I'm automagically a SATGATE. (If ISS ever comes
back on packet). Simply changing the frequency of the ISS radio, lets me do
PCSAT (but it's dying). So...we eagerly await the return of ISS Packet.
