UI-View can use the exact paths as any Non-UI-View program so long as a 
destination has been set.  In the case of the original posting where he 
is trying to use UI-View the destination and path can be either:


I found that for mobile use (PATHS) WIDE1-1,WIDE2-2 or WIDE1-1,WIDE2-1 
work quite well.  Of course any mobile station using the old 
RELAY,WIDE,TRACE parameters are only heard direct and never digipeated 
in our North Central Florida area.  We have 4 digi's set with the new 
Trap-Out Solution ("L" Digipeater).  The performance of mobile stations 
has improved signifantly.
