Positionless simply means a position is not present in the packet  
containing the weather data. The position is transmitted in a separate  
packet at a much lower rate in order to save channel bandwidth.

If you look at a message format, you see that it also is positionless.  
Same with telemetry and status packets. Bob for some reason does not  
object to these, in fact he created them.

The software buffers the position, and associates it with the incoming  
weather, message, status, telemetry, and other data into a single  
station record.
