This sounds very much like what the IRLP interface does.  Perhaps a 
variation would provide just such an interface.  DTMF tones could 
control frequnecy shifts in steps or other functions on the radio.

Interesting idea.  I have seen other interactive internet controlled

those who cannot obtain such equipment on a personal level.
