16 (0 - 15) in the AX.25 specification.  -0 is not displayed by most
TNC's and software.

The APRS specification specifically states that the SSID is not
significant in source calls if another method of symbol identification
is used in the packet (which virtually all current software and hardware
does).  This entire discussion is what different people "like" to use,
not what is required by the specification.  Nor, IMO, should there be a
specification requiring a specific SSID for a specific purpose since
people can run multiple stations with the same purpose thereby negating
the ability to use SSID for purpose identification.
