Except for the Dumb terminal packet, Xastir would be one choice.

Another choice would be WinAPRS/MacAPRS, which I _think_ might be
fairly similar to each other.  They were programmed by two brothers
and share much of the codebase.  There's a version of MacAPRS for
OSX.

Perhaps a Java APRS client would fit the bill as well.  I haven't
tried any so not sure.
