If a hardware solution would be acceptable, the Tracker2 might do what you
want.  It'll display incoming messages and send ACKs, and you can send
messages from the command prompt with automatic retries.  It only queues one
outgoing message at a time though, due to lack of buffer space.
Should have some more beta boards available before long...

I have found a solution to my messaging issue.
I found I can use xastir as the HQ computer, and because messages sent to
xastir appear on the local port 2023, it makes it REALLY easy to then use
xastir to take care of the acks, and just use perl to grab data off port2023
