This would certainly not be hard to do.  The LPT port has four input bits
which would be enough if you encoded the bands into BCD.  I suspect some
people might be doing this already to drive TopTen devices or DuneStar
bandpass filters.

I thought about putting this into NA years ago but everybody seemed to be
most interested in the RS-232 to radio setup.
