Yes and no. 
Mic-E (Kenwood messages) can use altnets.
Positions dont.  My thinking was that even if
you are using an altnet to cut down on clutter
on the channel, that you still want to see ALL
mobiles in your immediate area.

In all software and the kenwoods you can filter
positions by range... th elack of an ALTNET
capability there is therefore not significant.
