    Thanks for the info, Steve, 

    I've been posting on another subject on APRSSIG.  Any idea why my posts aren't going through?  Is there a per day message limit or something?  


                                                                    Fred, WB4AEJ

    I'm interested in the three state area that surrounds western North

    Can anyone help here?

  1)  You apparently are a total newbie to UIview.  The best place to be posting these queries is on the UIview-specific mailing list hosted on Yahoo groups.   Go to:


  and join the group and mailing list.  If you do not already have a (free) Yahoo account, you will have to create one before you sign up.    

  2)  It is up to you, the user, to provide maps for your local area.  Until you provide images of maps of your local area at the magnification level you desire, properly calibrated to reflect the lat/long of the area covered, you WILL NOT be able to zoom in.    Read the pages on "UI-View32 Maps" in the "Technical Information" section of the UIview help system.  

  You will either have to:   

  o       Capture static (i.e. non zoomable) map images from other programs such as Street Atlas, MS Streets & Trips, etc,  or scan paper maps.  This will normally require capturing and calibrating numerous "screen shots" of different areas and at different magnifications.

  o        For the US and Canada,  PURCHASE, install and register Undertow Software's Precision Mapping 7.0 program.    The Precision Mapping Server 7.0 add-on for UIview (free download from the UIview.org website) allows data from Precision Mapping  to provide a seamless continuously zoomable and scrollable view of ALL of the US and Canada  inside UIview.  The view can be zoomed anywhere from the entire North American continent down to street level.
