There are no "sub-stations". 

ALL stations are co-equal in the AX25 packet protocol used by APRS.    A 
call with just the callsign alone ( i.e.  WA8LMF ) is actually  the call 
with an SSID of zero (i.e. WA8LMF-0)  and is treated the same as any 
other SSID.   (The SSID of -0 is implicit and handled as such,  even if 
it is not explicitly specified.)
