Yes, it could be.  The Delta II, however, cannot be computer
controlled AND do CW.
That's why I don't "love" it, only like it.  It's also very large in a
/m context.  For the $1200 or less that you are talking about, you
could get one of the bazillion band, miniature radios (FT-100 (I just
bought one, by the way...neat little radio), IC-706xxxx, TS-50).
