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!

You might be able to get AWGPE working if you can send KISS data out to a virtual com
port...check out http://www.soundcardpacket.org/
"In addition, Tim Pearson KB9VQF has written a
<http://www.pearsoncomputing.net/freeware.php>AGWPE Serial Loopback utility that
creates virtual serial ports that will let you link AGWPE to any packet program that can
link to a KISS-enabled TNC (AGWPE's sound card mode simulates a KISS TNC). "
