Therefore for APRStt and RFID' I think it best to clearly show up on the map as a distinct vertical table located in a logical place on the map.

So what APRS application is going to display this?      In UIview 
multiple posits at  the same location stack on top of each other with 
the most recent one covering up all the others. If you mouse over the 
top symbol and double-click (for full details) or right click, a list of 
the stacked reports appears allowing you to choose one.

list when clicked.


However, until you click, there is NO indication that there is a stack 
under the top symbol.

APRSpoint behaves in a similar way.
