If my post offends YOU, that's too bad. I can't do anything about that. The 
thread was about how to get something on APRS from point A to point B via 
RF. Unfortunately, Bob seems to have taken it as an opportunity to change 
the subject and take a dig at UI-View. People (Bob included) should be more 
constructive. If something doesn't work, fix it. If new software is needed, 
write it. If Bob or anyone else wants to suggest using one program or 
another or even write a new program or an add-on for an existing program, 
that is fine. UI-View won't  be around forever. One day it will be 
"replaced" for one reason or another. I doubt if it will be replaced merely 
because some other program "natively" shows PHG circles or "natively" allows 
users to enter PHG info. For now, there are MANY people using UI-view... by 
all accounts more than any other APRS client. However that doesn't have 
anything to do with getting something via RF into Atlanta.

Seemed pretty critical to me.
