    I've been watching this thread with interest.  Arte, if you can get 
UI-View to run and operate through those two boards, then you can easily 
set up whatever digi paths you wish -- VHF->VHF, HF->VHF, etc.  Each one 
will require a separate line, so you get total control of whatever 
cross-banding you want to have, or not have.  But get UI-View working 
with them first, if you can.

    Here's some info from <http://www.ui-view.org/>

    Looks like you just might be able to run UI-View on your Pentium, 
but don't try the fancy maps.
