[amsat-bb] Uni_trac help - S-BAND AO-51,2nd radio

I am hoping someone in the group can help me with a problem I am having.  I
installed my AO-51 S-Band setup and added a 2nd radio on the 2nd port of the
Uni_trac which works fine when Uni_trac is doing the controlling.  


I have setup AO-51 and AO-51 second profile.  One is for standard mode and
one for S-Band mode.


I use Nova via DDE to control Uni_trac, which works great except that when I
select the second Uni_Trac profile Nova reverts Uni_trac to the AO-51 U/V


Anyone know what I mean and/or how to fix it?  I want Nova to do the
controlling, but I want it to do it for when the SAT is in S-Band without
changing the freqs in Nova.  Maybe there is a way in Nova to setup another
satellite for the changed parameters when AO-51 changes modes and somehow
select that?  Like an AO-51(2) or something?


Thanks for any advice,
