here's a pic of the actual GPS puck, and the back FCC sticker.
the front model number is just LT-20 (which I seem to be able to find zero docs 
the back also says model 9838.  not sure how clear it is in the pic, but the LED 
is flashing green, indicating 3D sat acquisition according to instructions for 
other models.

using vmware, and XP running inside on my Ubuntu 16.04 workstation, windows does 
report seeing a delorme USB GPS device. next is to see if I can get anything to 
unpack the data from it. I will try your
gpsd repository, but I don't have the right info yet to make it work, so going 
to try earthbridge first..
