Arte,

1. Shut down UI-View32

2. Copy uiview32.ini to a backup location. (It is in your main uiview32 
directory)

3. Edit uiview32.ini (in the main uiview32 directory as shown below: 
(Make sure to use a TEXT editor, not Microsoft Word or any other word 
processor that puts formatting commands in the text!) Notepad works 
fine.  Below is the pertinent section of UIVIEW32.INI found in the 
install directory for UI-VIEW32.

Find the [DIGI_OPTIONS] section of the file and change TWO items ONLY. 
Please note that the UIFLOOD change is your two-letter postal state 
abbreviation or ARRL section.

[DIGI_OPTIONS]
DIGI_ENABLED=TRUE
UI_ONLY=TRUE
ALIAS_SUBSTITUTION=TRUE
DUPE_SUPPESS_SECONDS=30
ALIAS=N2CRZ-10,WIDE1-1
UIFLOOD=NY
UITRACE=""
WIDEN-N=TRUE
TRACEN-N=FALSE
SUBST_ALIAS=N2CRZ-10
EXCLUDED=""

You could just as easily cut and paste the above then do 4 & 5 below.

4. Save your changed file.
5. Restart UI-View32

The above will make UI-View a Fill-In digi with State support or change 
UIFLOOD= to whatever your area uses, check with the other digi owners or 
the coordinator for your area.

Ed, KF4CHG
