Well that's disturbing.

Glad to hear you're back with us, the world can't afford to lose a Linux
nerd! We're a precious commodity!!!

The first thing I would do is see if it's actually transmitting. Any RF
analyzer from Amazon should be able to tell you, and what frequency it's
on, if it is.

That'll tell you quickly if it's a WiFi thing or a wireless video thing. If
it's WiFi thing, there a few NetSec tricks (like de-auth packet attack)
that can help you to see what network its on, or what it's trying to
connect to

If it's Wireless video, super-creeper mode, then that same RF Analyzer can
probably do some basic jamming.

As far as RF triangulation, that's too far outside my wheelhouse to speak
intelligently, sorry.
