As time moves forward, there are other options.  For example if you use a
Raspberry Pi 3 (built-in Wifi), you then run the UDRC II
<http://nwdigitalradio.com/product/udrc/> and Direwolf to control 1 or 2
radios at 1200 or 9600 baud (or other speeds if desired).  WiFi has a much
better range than Bluetooth, even going as far as being to operate remotely
over the Internet. (With proper security, like a VPN)

Also using AGWPE (or KISS) over the network means more than one device can
access your network attached TNC.
