I would suggest you get a GPS if possible.  There are a number of low-cost 
devices now available, such as the Garmin GPS 18x LVC, and the Sure 
Electronics GPS Evaluation board.  I've used both, and they work very 
well, being sensitive enough to work with an indoor antenna on the top 
floor of a building.  The sure board is about US $35.  Both require a 
little soldering.  I've written up my experiments here:

Good luck with your projects!
