Bob's point is that DFing is much more powerful when you can take advantage 
of the vast (?) network of amateur home stations who can report at the very 
least whether they hear the target (jammer) at their location.

It's especially useful if they cannot hear it at all, because it sets a 
radius where the location of the target is more unlikely to be.

If you can harness all those home stations out there, you don't have to be 
driving around to get multiple points.
