The fundamental issue here is that the *position* of a wave is a very difficult concept to define and that definition, no matter how you define it requires a kind of uncertainty related to the *wave length* of that wave. Certainly, if the wave length is known exactly, the position is a meaningless concept. On the other hand, if the *position* is known exactly, the shape of the wave must be a delta function and it must thus be a superposition of all possible wave lengths.

None of the above has anything whatsoever to do with quantization.

Have fun -- Dick
