Erich, after playing with this for a half hour, I think you will eventually
have to increase the 4 configurations to maybe 6 or 8. 

This is very neat to have a laptop switching between configurations where
you might run 1 radio on #1 and 2 radios on #2 at the click of a mouse, and,
have other configurations for a different QTH (club station, Field Day,
EMCOMM etc) where you use different rotator and radio combinations. 

I unzipped the DATABACKUP.EXE into Program Files/SATPC32 with all the other
executables and added it in the "Programs" menu (edit "Programs.SQF") so
that personalized configurations can be backed up from within SATPC32
whenever I make a change, test it and confirm it works.  Program additions
need to be done in each of your 4 configurations if it is an application you
routinely launch while running SATPC32, such as a logging program, unless
you launch it from your initial configuration before switching or start it
outside of SATPC32.

When your shut down and restart SATPC32,  you restart into the last used
configuration.  i.e. shut down in Config 3 and you will start in Config 3
next time. So watch the title line for which config you are in at start up
if you are a frequent user of Config Switching. 

A very nice set of enhancements.
