I don't think you can currently save a basis set definition for the
orbital basis. But you can write your basis definition into a different 
file (e.g. mybasis) and include it wherever needed, e.g.

include mybasis

Or you can put the basis block into a procedure definition:


procedure loadbasis   !procedure definition

hf               !hf using sto-3g

loadbasis        !execute procedure loadbasis

hf               !hf using basis vtz (defined in procedure loadbasis)
