Yeah, it's too bad his message (and yours) wasn't truncated!
On the bright side, he didn't top post - hi!

I just had a D700 user enable ambiguity to see how it displays in 
UI-View. As expected (from earlier comments about APRS clones) it 
displayed the symbol that the user specified and with the position shown 
as if zeros were transmitted instead of spaces. It may not show 
ambiguity at a glance like apparently APRSDOS, but if I'm at all 
interested in a particular station, it would stand out like a sore thumb 
that there were missing digits and what was going on. Of course, the 
user could change the callsign to AMBIG or something like that and enter 
their callsign in the status text... or perhaps use e.g. WBRAPR-A with 
the A standing for ambiguity.
