you have to use net2kiss to feed the data to ax25ipd but you will have 
to disable the call check routine in the source to have ax25ipd create a 
default route, that option is not available in udp mode (the option udp 
in a route skips the checking for the d and b option).

Technicaly it could probably be done but I think the trafic load would 
be far greater then APRS-IS, the aprs stream already is to big for a 9k6 
channel even in full duplex.
