As Phillip pointed out, it could be an expired station and about to 
disappear the next time your map is updated. I see you beaconed from 
KC8GKF via the space station but had an obsolete WIDE on the end of your 
path. WIDE has been obsolete in North America for about 4-5 years now.

Is KC8GKF-WL your Winlink station? It hasn't been "heard" since Jan 22 
2009. It shouldn't even be on your map. What do you have set for your 
expire time in SETUP - MISC? Ah... perhaps it's KC8GKF-10.

So... are they expired? Expired stations have an X through the symbol 
and the label has a grey background. Again, they will disappear the next 
time your map updates. That setting is also in SETUP - MISC.

It doesn't matter how you received a report... i.e. via RF or via TCPIP. 
If it's expired, it's expired.

PS - are you on the UI-View support list?
