Robbie,

Thanks for the info.  While implementing your suggestions, I discovered 
that the home station wasn't transmitting.  I'll have to go troubleshoot 
that before I can proceed further.  Your info, and that of the other 
responders to my original request is giving me a leg up on getting 
everything working.

A question, though.  Why does the TT3 not need APRS in the path while 
UI-View does need it in its' path?

Thanks again,

Jim
