In UI-View, pull down Setup, Digipeater Setup and place "WIDE1-1" (the 
New Paradigm home station replacement for "RELAY")  into the "Alias(es)" 
field and check "Enable Digi".  

There are much more elaborate things you can do by editing .INI files 
but these are the basic settings.   Note that the UIview internal 
digipeater won't be available at all unless you are in KISS mode.  In 
the KISS mode, UIview handles all the digipeating functions;  the 
outdated ver 8.2 firmware in the KPC3+ isn't even an issue since it 
isn't used.
