Brough, thanks for the great post about our site, SignalMap.com. The ability to post signal data to the Map, both manually and automatically, has been under discussion since the conception of SignalMap. But since the "team" consists of my brother and I working on it part-time, we have to keep site functionality simple and low maintenance. Response to the site has been very positive since its launch in July, with over 40,000 signals added so far. We're rolling a pseudo-international version live soon, and will continue to work toward the ability to add data from mobile devices.

Thanks,
Adam

Navizon (http://www.navizon.com) is doing something like that. But rather than just provide a map of signal strength, they actually go an extra step and use the signal strength to triangulate position. Very cool technology. My good friend Jim Parsons (http://web.mac.com/parsons.jim) was doing the biz dev for them.

I'm sure they could repurpose their data to create something like SignalMap.
