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:
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:
