Multitasking OSes don't provide underlying access to the hardware of
the computer they are running on, because the app can't assume it's
the only thing running with full control of the machine.

But radio equipment will be seen as an attached peripheral, and there
shouldn't be any problem about a DOS app in a VM or an emulator
communicating with it.
