Beware the link has changed:

"Amateur Multicast Protocol"

Ah, ok, thanks, never heard about it. But instead, why not setting up
a Hayes interface on top of fldigi modems,
and then have an IP interface ? This way, we would have all the
benefit of TCP/IP sockets without
having to reinvent a protocol (Which is usually not a very simple task).

Any new fldigi modem could then be chosen, and thanks to RFID, the
receiver would automatically
switch to the transmitter modem.
