"Position Ambiguity In some instances — for example, where the exact
position is not known — the sending station may wish to reduce the
number of digits of precision in the latitude and longitude. In this
case, the mm and hh digits in the latitude may be progressively replaced
by a V (space) character as the amount of imprecision increases"
