The icom PCr-1000 software come with a DTMF software decoder. If a terrestrial 
station sends a burst of DTMF tones at the key up identifying their station 
could be there is a way to pin point a QRM source by elimination.

This system will required each station to provide a way to inject theses DTMF 
code at the start of each transmission.

Some police radio system used this system to ID their police car.
