Well there's a loaded question.

So a traditional ham device is a radio, so any protocol you want to run on
top of a radio wave is possible. There are some radios that do have ways to
transfer data, like slow scan and psk31, but that's usually done by a device
connected to the radio.

I won't say that there aren't "ham devices" with an IP stack built in, but I
think we're talking about different layers here.
