Doug,

I have been following this thread.  Setting up your temp digis and paths 
according to Bob's suggestions will work just fine.  We recently had the 
Olustee Parade here in Lake City, FL where we used 2 trackers and 2 temp 
digis using UI-View32.  We used 144.990 for the frequency.  Following is 
a snip from the UI-View .ini file.

[DIGI_OPTIONS]
DIGI_ENABLED=FALSE
UI_ONLY=TRUE
ALIAS_SUBSTITUTION=TRUE
DUPE_SUPPESS_SECONDS=30
ALIAS=TEMP2-1,TEMP1-1,KF4CHG-11
UIFLOOD=FL
UITRACE=""
TEMPN-N=TRUE
TRACEN-N=FALSE
SUBST_ALIAS=KF4CHG-11
EXCLUDED=""
WIDEN-N=FALSE

Although it says UIFLOOD=FL above it was actually turned off.  Trackers 
(TT3's) were set for 1 minute beacons with Tactial callsigns with my 
actual callsign KF4CHG beaconed every 10 minutes.  This all worked 
fallessly.  HT radios were set for 5 watts output.

Wish I could be there to help out.

Ed, KF4CHG
