Good programs, but you owe it to yourself to take a look at SATPC32.
http://www.dk1tb.de/indexeng.htm It is similar in some ways to Nova, but
has some additional support for frequency control of both of your radios,
and of course supports the LVB Tracker perfectly. Once you get things
tweaked up, it makes working the birds almost like HF, in that it takes care
of both tracking and the Doppler correction for you. You can download a
fully functional test version, except that you need to enter you QTH
longitude and latitude each time you start it up.
Full disclosure requires me to add that the registration fee goes to a
worthy cause: AMSAT. It all goes for support and development.
