[aprssig] One more question on POS ambiguity....

OK, copy all on entering spaces in decimal minutes. Now the other question:
I run APRSDOS (+10 years on same laptop) and I usually keep it on a map of 10 miles approximately around my QTH to greet passerbys on highways, etc. I'm plagued by certain WX stations, digi's, and home stations that show up all around me, but are really located +30 miles away. When I click on them it says "vicinity". After running for a few hours, my screen is covered with these vicinity circles, unitl I hit the space bar. Why do these stations appear as vicinity, but on Findu they show up where they belong?


For example:

N8VIM, a WX APRS station thats 40 miles SW of me almost ALWAYS shows up as a "vicinity WX Station". Is it because he uses a different path for the POS packet vs WX data packet? 
It looks like he's got WIDE2-2 for WX packets, WIDE2-2 for a BEACON packet i.e. (  2008-05-04 01:00:13 UTC: N8VIM>BEACON,WIDE2-1,qAR,N1UEC-1:Pepperell, MA. WX station  ) What good does this packet do? and I can't tell what he's using for the POS packet.
