[aprssig] Replacement for UI-View any one

Have you tried PA7RHM's map server? It works great for "at home" use.  I
have saved the static maps for use portable but I quickly changed back
to the live mapserver with an air card.

That's my concern, Keith. After some effort, I got UI-View and the 
PMapServer to run under Vista. I haven't tried Windows 7 yet. I am 
very concerned that future Windows versions will become incompatible 
with UI-View and UI-View users will be forced to find something else. 
What that "something else" is, I don't know.

As for features, the only concern I have with UI-View is mapping. To 
me, an APRS client that does not have pan and zoom maps based on 
regularly-updated map data is not worth my time. Luckily, we have the 
PMapServer. But, to my way of thinking, an APRS client should have 
that capability built-in.
