Linux has the software packet modems and AX.25 support in the kernel 
(though you usually have to reompile the kernel to access them on 
modern distros).  I'm not sure how to setup Linux packet these days, 
as the howtos are very old.  I recall experimenting with the Linux 
soundcard modem many years ago with a lot of success.
