That's the beauty of using applications that can talk to the kernel ax25 
stack, they can all share the same radio ports.

Don't overlook xastir's server port (2023 by default) that permits 
displaying of the xastir-observed traffic on another instance of xastir 
on another computer. The remote xastir can run headless and mapless but 
send data to other machines on a network - LAN or elsewhere. That port 
can also be used to upload beacons to xastir. I use it to upload wx 
beacons from local airport wx stations.
