Yes, that'll work.  You'll make your head hurt getting it all set up tho :)

Quick outline of approach:

1) get AWGPE installed and working.

2) install a virtual serial port pair using something like com0com; use baud emulation.

3) install AGWPE KISS-Mode Loopback interface.  Configure to use one of the virtual ports; use 9600 baud.

4) Now launch/configure F-1 Telemetry decoder.  Pick "the other" virtual com port, use 9600 baud, and then start it.

Use local APRS packet traffic to test...you should be printing it (raw data....

It takes a bit of monkey-ing around, but it works!
