Keith, Bob, et al
Will answer some questions...No I don't use Xastir and Ui-View at the 
same time..One transmits and one listens so I can see what's going on.
I have been using the defaults in Ui-View and Xastir for the paths.  It 
appears that the paths in both clients are tied to the station 
beacons....can't seem to set them separately.
The next thing is that this morning I saw a d-star object on the 
d-700....that's not supposed to be supported (according to the manual).
Hope this helps a little.
73, Jim WA9ARB
