Hi Bill

At least at some level, yes.  Under "Sensors" there is "Sierra Wireless Location Sensor".

Under "Network Adapters" is listed "EM7355", which is the part number for a Sierra Wireless multipurpose radio which supports GPS as well as a variety of 2G, 3G and 4G cellular standards, intended for North American usage.

I am guessing that these two are related.

Hi Steve,

if it presented as virtual serial port delivering NMEA sentences then it would be relatively straightforward to take a GPS fix from that, convert to a Maidenhead gridsquare, then send that to WSJT-X using the appropriate UDP Message Protocol message. I suspect it is conforming to some Windows driver that integrates it into Windows more directly, I'm afraid I known nothing about that or how an application might gather information from it.
