# Using \uncover in latex beamer class with notes

I am preparing a Latex Beamer presentation with notes and using the uncover option. When I compile the PDF with the "show notes on second screen" option notes only appear for the uncovered last version of a particular slide. I expect the notes to be attached to every version of a slide. Otherwise they are somewhat useless.

I do something like this for every slide:

\frame{
\frametitle{slide}
lorem ipsum...

\uncover<2->{
surprise!
}
}

\note{
do not forget to say this
}


Issue the note before the frame is finished:

\documentclass{beamer}

\usepackage{pgfpages}
\setbeameroption{show notes on second screen}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}
\frametitle{slide}
lorem ipsum...

\uncover<2->{
surprise!
}

\note{
do not forget to say this
}
\end{frame}

\end{document}
