I have considered setting up an Igate here, but have a LOT of learning to do
before I get that far.  I've got U-View up and running - partially.  It
receives nicely, msgs, reports, etc.  I also have my home stations showing
up on findu.com as K9FV - BUT I can not send msgs - they fail to send, AND
the raw packet shows an error.  It shows the first path as TCPXX* instead of
the correct TCPIP - yes, I have the registration number entered and it says
"valid" with a -1 in the validation number. I am getting LOTS of stuff from
the internet, and if I sent a msg from my motorcycle via RF link, it will
show up on my computer U-View program.

Steep learning curve with this stuff.  I will be MOST happy to talk with
anyone about setup and getting this stuff going - either email or phone.
