I doubt it would help in this case, since things are very static.
There's only single AP (typical home network environment).  The
wireless card is plugged into (and sits directly on top of) an
desktop, so its position in space is rather static (if I wanted to
make a bad attempt at being funny, I'd add "relative to the AP").

I'll check out what "iw event -t" has to say over the weekend.
