It’s an interesting concept to say the least but I can’t see a use case for me personally. I connect via multiple methods to my allstar nodes so having an actual node setup works best for me. However I am sure there are others that can find a use case for this kind of thing.

Not a lot of restrictions of hoops to jump.
It would be beneficial if the connection to a Radio from the hardwareAs Steve said, this is not the domain of IAX_Bridge, but I disagree, the
was easier. Audio in/out and PTT without squelch, like windows echo
link from a PC, would be a benefit.
This would avoid the dedicated radio (i.e. modified HT and USB Sound
Dongle). Using a Signal-link, Rigblaster, Buckmaster type of
interface and a connection to MIC, SPKR and PTT. Any of us that have
unused Echolink setup have this stuff laying around.
priority of RF linking shouldn't be "easy", but "good engineering"
instead. A shoddy node can impact entire networks. VOX is a horrible
interface for RoIP linking. You need a more positive indication of the
presence of a signal (COS is OK, CTCSS is better). Use the right tool
for the job.
hUC is definitely handy in that respect, and you can have multiple users

with different privileges. I often forget it's there in my bridge
applications, then it ends up being the right tool for a particular
job. And I'm glad I went down the LetsEncrypt road for the SSL certs.
