I have a PACTOR usb modem and I don't have an NMEA input to that. Gpsd is gtting position from a USB GPS and that works fine in OpenCPN. How do I configure airmail to get the position for position reports and propagation predictions if it does not come in a com port?

Airmail picks up the lat/lon for the Position report through a 'side door'. When Airmail is launched the latest lat/lon when a gps was attached to the system magically appears.

The gut of it are in /usr/local/bin/airmail
