At this moment in time no PSK250 modem is available, only soundcard software.

This is planned for the future. It will probably be some form of ssh rather 
than telnet, and it will be VERY slow.
It requires multi-connect, where pskmail is single session at the moment. So it 
will take some time to implement.
