under SatPC32 you have COM port access to an unlimited number of COM ports.
COM 1...20 can be set directly in the setup window of the driver program,
port numbers above by changing the data file with an editor (i.e. Notepad).
The port numbers 1..4 in the menu "Rotor Setup" relate to the parallel
I don't know the Sat688 controller. It seems to be easycomm1 compatible
(see http://www.arrl.org/FandES/tbp/ariss-kits/ ). 2 of the driver programs
that come with SatPC32 support that protocol.
