Ultimate 3S and coordinated hopping

I wonder if anyone has figured out how to do coordinated frequency hopping with this device?
I plan to run on 30,17,15,12 and 10 meters.
So I should transmit at 08,12,14,16 and 18 minutes after the hour on those respective bands.
And then again at 28,32,34,36 and 38 minutes. And again 20 minutes later.

The U3 lets you put in a "transmission sequence number" and it looks like you can put in 16 "transmissions". There is also a "frame start".

I am guessing I have to program in 10 bands with the coordinated ones in position 5,7,8,9,10 and program in duplicates (non coordinated) in position 1,2,3,4 and 6. Frame start will be 2.

Then I have to sit until just before minute 0, 20 or 40 to push the "start" button.

Or is there an easier way?

And what will happen after a power fail? (I will be using GPS for time)

Thanks
