The Frequency Display Editor allows changes in the database associated with each satellite.

Frequency Database.  Each satellite has its own database with as many entries as desired.  You can name each entry as necessary so it is easy to identify.  Each entry also includes uplink and downlink frequencies and L.O. frequencies if needed.  L.O. frequencies are convenient if up- or down-converters are used so that displayed frequencies are in the range of the HF or VHF transmitter or receiver.  If no up- or down-converter is used, enter 0.0 for the L.O. frequency.  The frequencies stored in Nova's database are frequencies at the satellite, not on the ground.

All data are stored in plain ASCII text files the \Frequencies folder associated with Nova.  Each satellite has a separate file whose name is xxxxx satname.INI (xxxxx is the satellite's unique catalog number).  It is all right to make changes manually to these files, but be careful to observe the existing formatting of the file, including presence/absence of spaces.  If you aren't sure what to do, don't edit the database by hand.

Frequency Display This page of the Frequency Editor sets two choices for Nova's Frequency Display.  When exiting... tells Nova whether to save the changes that you have made to frequencies during the session.  You may want to always return to the same starting frequency as determined by the frequency database.  

Status bar shows... sets the values that the Frequency status bar shows when the main Frequency Display is minimized using the Minimize button on the Frequency Display.
