I put together a simple crowdsourced QRM tracking tool. Have a directional antenna? With this you can place beam on a map and share with others to help track down QRM sources.... Its free, its experimental. Give it a try!

Nice idea! Alas, my beamwidth on 20M is many degrees, so it would be hard to determine a target bearing very accurately. You need receivers located on a wide range of bearings, etc. Antenna arrays (4 squares?) that can be accurately nulled might give better results than simple beams. (But how do you calibrate them?)

It will be interesting to see what you can do with ordinary equipment -- and ordinary hams!
