There is no GPS antenna built into the DRAWS board. That is by design as the DRAWS board is intended to be packaged (along with its host Raspberry Pi) into a metal case which would block an integrated antenna.

Yes that is correct. It is a requirement to have some antenna connected
to the gps device on the DRAWS HAT. I have used a number of USB gps and I'm
impressed how well the DRAWS gps works (11 satellites discovered) compared to
the others based on SiRF IV chips.

Do not think so.
