    Plot interferometer UV tracks as observed with the interferometer.   The
    default  is  for  NOEMA, but the command is more general and can be used
    with any array, especially ALMA.

    Station coordinates are searched for in the  file  defined  by  the  AS-
    TRO_STATIONS  logical  variable.  Stations  should  be  referred to by a
    mnemonic (e.g. E03, W00 ...) given as arguments of UV_TRACKS.  See  also
    /STATIONS option.

    Some  configuration files for NOEMA and ALMA are distributed with gildas
    and can be used as ASTROTIONS files combined with UVTRACKS ALL to  avoid
    typing  a lot of station names (see HELP UVTRACKS NOEMA or HELP UVTRACKS

    The coordinates of the most recently selected SOURCE or PLANET are  con-
    sidered. The frequency of the simulated observation is read from the Sic
    FREQUENCY variable (which is also set by LET FREQUENCY command).

    UV_TRACKS can be used iteratively, to simulate the observations of  sev-
    eral  configurations. Option /FRAME indicate the start of a new observa-
    tions: if not present, configurations are being stacked on  the  current
    UV  coverage.  The user may select another color pen to distringuish be-
    tween the various coverages. A sketch of the interferometer described by
    ASTRO_STATIONS  is  also  drawn,  and the selected stations/antennas are
