Antenna port & tuner memory/persistence...

Lifted from my "Praise" post after the ARRL DX SSB Contest...

I would love to have Antenna tuner memories/persistence....

I ran two antennas, a dipole and a vertical, and it would be nice to connect them to the ANT1 & ANT2 ports and have the tuner remember tuner settings for each antenna whenever they are selected, and remember the tuning settings for several places in each band.  This would speed things up a lot. 

Whenever I switched from the dipole to the 40 meter vertical, I needed to take time to tune, even if I was just going to make a quick call.  Thankfully this transmitter seems to be very tolerant of mismatch and I didn't feel like I was putting things at too much rick without hitting the tuner for brief calls!

I would like to see a drop down editable matrix table that would allow me to define which antenna port should be used by default.   This would be driven by the band selected for a particular receiver slice.  If receiver B happens to be on 40 then my dipole port will be selected.  Further, the correct port will be activated when the red TX indicator is moved to a particular receiver slice. -W9HLQ-
