Was rather more low tech - from the operators PoV, they synchronised 2 different signals in a 'stereo' headset to get the range/bearing at the start of transcription. What sat behind that is presumably rather more complex than simple triangulation, but that's definitely what they did as my father was deaf in one ear and someone had to do this for him each time the source changed.
