I don't believe there are any ax.25 modules.  too small a community if 
you're looking for amateur radio operators who are also python 
programmers.  I know of 2.  ;-)

I have a friend who is working on some wavelet image compression and 
data transmission schemas.  He's really really good at the lower levels 
but human factors are best described as not his forte.
