Wayne replies:

I don't use Uni-Trac so I'm not an authority on the subject.  Uni-Trac 
is controlled by its own stand-alone program, using a DDE connection to 
continuously obtain the position data from SatPC32.

According to section "II" of the SatPC32 manual, you need to copy a file 
called RotorServer.sqf into the main SatPC32 directory.  I presume that 
the DDE rotor function is always enabled when that program is in the 
main SatPC32 directory.

What I'm not sure about is WHICH of several RotorServer.sqf files is the 
correct one to use for DDE.  Perhaps Erich Eichmann or a 
SatPC32/Uni-Trac user can clarify...
