Catching up on the Universe Today I came across this article discussing the history of the wow signal. Since it fit the profile of a non-naturally generated signal, the would indicate either an equipment glitch or there really was something out there sending a signal. My question is, based on signal magnitude and the direction, would it be possible to approximate about where it came from?
going into deeper reading yielded this about its location in the sky...

"The apparent coordinates of the emission were R.A.\19h22m22s or 19h25m12s (both ^5s), decl.\ [2703@^20@ (1950) (J. D. Kraus 1990, private communication)"
