Between saving the objects to a save file and doing the SNDDST, do the
1. Use an RPG/COBOL program to read the save file (externally described 528
bytes) and write to a PF (also 528 bytes).
2. use CPYTOPCD to copy PF to file in directory in QDLS
3. Use SNDDST to send the QDLS file

On the remote system, after restoring the QDLS file:
1. Use CPYFRMPCD to copy QDLS file to PF (528 bytes)
2. Use RPG/COBOL program to write from PF to cleared save file
