Thanks to all that replied. As they all noted, a problem existed in the 
PRIOR.SQR file. I did set it up in the main folder "SatPC32" for 
configuration 1, but in editing the original file I inadvertently deleted 
something important or had a typo. Rewriting the "prior" file has solved all 
issues! Al, KI7RM

Hi Allen,
A possible reason of the issue: Each of the 4 configurations of SatPC32
(menu "Setup") is using it's own file "Prior.SQF". I suppose you set up
the Prior.SQF file in the main data folder "SatPC32", which is used with
configuration #1 (the others are located in sub folders CfgII .. CfgIV
of the main data folder). So, make sure that you run configuration #1.
