Suggestion: Take a handheld receiver and walk around until you find the
strongest location for these emissions.  You can easily make a small loop
out of coax cable, and use that for sniffing in the near field area. During
the problem on 80 meters with Phonex modems some years ago I used an old
sniffer loop found at a flea market.
