As far as I know, there are no APRS programs specifically for HF.   That would 
be a function, not of the program, but of the TNC, either hardware or 
sound-card software that you use.

I.e. the TNC has to offer a 300 baud transmission mode rather that the 1200 
baud normally used on VHF.

Note that the TinyTrack III and 4 can be configured for the 300-baud 
200-Hz-shift mode used on HF, instead of the customary 1200-baud 1000-Hz-shift 
used on VHF.
