Does it mean that if an AWS includes an integrated GPS receiver, then 
there is no need for a separate G-mouse or a GPS stick (to get the 
station's position only)? For my planned portable APRS, I was thinking 
to obtain a G-mouse for getting the position at first, and later to 
obtain an AWS for meteo data. Each device should hook up to a separate 
USB port on a laptop. So, by having a good AWS there's no need for extra 
GPS thing?
