Roger Barker, G4IDE sk, was the program author of UI-View and Winpack. UI-View is the most used client program for APRS, UI-View32 has become the reference for other programs. Winpack is a packet radio program with full FBB BBS support and the reference for that application. Roger left us on September 9, 2004.

The APRS community honored Roger's contribution to our hobby:

The APRS-IS Tier 2 Servers Tribute

The APRS-IS CORE Servers Tribute

A Final Thank You! by Ken Collins - G4FIP

The Atlantic Tribute during Roger's funeral created by UI-View users worldwide

On July 31, 2004, the TAPR had awarded Roger with the "TAPR Lifetime Achievement Award".

Here you find mirrors of Roger's original UI-View and Winpack sites, copied end of September 2004:

According to Roger's last wishes the sites had been closed and the program codes destroyed. Therefore the versions UI-View32 V2.03 and Winpack V6.80 will remain the last issued.

Registration of the programs is free now, but a donation for a cancer research organisation is suggested. The license conditions are unchanged: "UI-View32 is for use only by radio amateurs, as part of their hobby of amateur radio".

For actual registration information for UI-View and Winpack go to Andy's (MØCYP) page.

New sites for UI-View and Winpack had been opened in November 2004:
