[OZAPRS] DreamPlug as an IGate???

soundmodem is what you want. I've been using it on VHF for years and it 
was brilliant for that.
Recently, I've been using it for HF, and it seems to be OK for that too.

See recent discussions between Damien and I. The plug computers are 
probably very good for this purpose and I'm seriously thinking of 
turning my Sheevaplug into one - and replacing my existing X86 machine. 
A unit with audio in/out on-board would be a bonus I'd say.

I've run Xastir + soundmodem for VHF on equipment much less capable than 
the unit you linked to. For field use (such as JOTA, etc), I still use a 
300MHz laptop with Xastir and soundmodem with Xubuntu, so these 1.2GHz 
beauties will work a treat I reckon.

Good luck!
