I am running both stations with tcpip. one with uiview the other with 

i have one (winaprs hooked up to a vhf rig) but still using tcpip.

two computers, and I can not get both programs to get all stations, the same 
stations, messages, that are on aprs-is.

how can i get all stations on both programs?

thank you in advance kc8gkf
