[amsat-bb] Uni_trac 2000 question?

Thanks to many helpful suggestions and support from the AMSat-BB list I was
able to get the Uni_Trac 2000 working with Nova DDE and with Yaesu g-5500
and FT-847. Thank-you.
I have one problem remaining.....
My uni_trac window for some reason is always lagging behind the tracking
that Nova is doing. I thought Nova would control the tracking, but it
appears it simply passes the satellite object name to Uni_trac and Uni_Trac
does its own calculations on the KEPs.
I made certain they are using the same nasa KEPs file for both Nova and
Uni_Trac. They have the same GPS coordinates entered and I have the same
height above sea level in them both (although on in feet and on in meters).
Does anyone have any thoughts? It seems that Uni_Trac is lagging or it is
calculating the KEP differently.
If there is a better listserv I should post this too, please advise.
Thanks again to all! 73s
