While there are a number of add-ons which extend the functionality
of UI-View, gating something to RF in UI-View doesn't reqire one.
It's built right into the program. The operator would merely need to
use a filter to make sure they got the beacons from the cell phone
user, and then tell UI-View to gate it to RF. It would be about a
30 second operation.
I mentioned earlier that the cell-phone user would have to beacon
at a reasonable rate if it was going to be gated to RF, but out of the
box, UI-View places limits on how much it will gate to RF... limits
for anyting per 1, 2 or 3 minutes, and further limits of the number of
local messages per 1, 2 or 3 minutes. The default settings are fairly
conservative, but the operator can fine tune them. In a busy locaiton,
they should probably set just a tad more conservatively than the
