AFAIK, so long as one sends a legal identification packet one may use
a tactical call, if you will, in the position packet. Public service
organizations do this all the time. Given that, the truck driver could
easily be legal, just using the ETI-x tactical call while sending a
ham call sign outside the position packet. Does it rub against
convention? Certainly,.. and may even be on the fringe of illegal IF
being used commercially.

I would be careful about marching up and introducing yourself without
some tact and knowledge that some do not play by the same rules.

  Len there is no callsign associated with any of his/her packets:

   So if it's a ham, he is not being legal.
