    I might be purchasing a shortwave radio that is called a "software defined
    radio" type.

    Uses the PC, and its software, to do a lot of the radio functions, etc.

    It mentioned that the sound card should be of the "duplex" bi-directional

    Have no idea what they are asking for.

    Specifically, is it "likely" that a new PC that has "integrated sound",
    rather than having one of the SoundBlaster types of individual sound cards
    has this feature ?

    It may be handy to not forget the make/model , links to manfacturer
    manuals. Perhaps even a subject line with - Sounds Card duplex type for
    make/model. It's highlights what your post is about.
    Yes. Ditto, make / model. It's harder to compare, confirm , deny if the
    above requirements re duplex exist.

    Would take is as early ISA / any ISA card half duplex, and modern PCI
    full duplex.
