Actually, I just monitored all packets for 25 minutes and this
tempest in a teapot is probablly not really an issue. 

Only 2 stations were sending positionless weather.  The other 18
were all sending the complete format, so most of the time it
looks like you will get WX you can use in the mobile.  I think
only MacAPRS and WinAPRS transmit the positionless format anyway
and there are not many of those left.
