Crazy WL2K/Trimode question - but I have to ask !

I'm new to Flex, so I hope this isn't totally ridiculous.

Took 5 minutes to get RMS Express, and the RMS Trimode working separately (thanks to demo posted by Chris - K6OZY) - now comes the crazy question:

Is there a method to run both WL Express and the RMS Trimode on the same radio (6600M). (I've had 2 older separate radios running these for years). Is there a way to put two 80m frequencies in service somewhere, then (somehow) query between them for the need to respond to an incoming call, then when a call is recognized switch the Tx to the appropriate frequency for a response. I have 2 antennas available (custom cut for each 80m frequency - with very little isolation, so there could be no simultaneous Tx on both frequencies). The probability of ever receiving a query on both at once is near zero. If it is possible, I don't have a clue as to how to set it up.

The Trimode (WQ2H) runs here 24/7, but we have a quarterly P2P exercise where this station also acts as the P2P host parsing out messages to those who check in on a schedule. It lasts 30 days every quarter. I could always shut down the Trimode during the exercise - but if there was a way to avoid it, that would be preferred. I could also put one of the programs back on an old radio - but just wondering if it's feasible to have it all done with one 2-SCU flex.

Yes, we all have dreams......thanks for listening !

Just an image showing the set-up: the exercise is on 3582 CF, the Trimode runs on 3595.5 (under the deep TNF - currently on a second radio).
