    if your microwave is older and/or gets abuse like family members slamming the door on it then this might be a good investment.

    otherwise, common sense is not to hover over the microwave while it is on.

    Frequency range: 50Hz~2000MHz

    Not much more than using my tone probe for ethernet cable hunting..

    Not a good investment for that scenario.

    And you're wrong about the common sense.
    I'm not about to let you ruin MY nachos hombre..

    Does this measure the watts per meter. I could use a watts per meter to determine how much radiation is being emitted by the AM radio towers behind my house.

    Realistically if you abuse a microwave door the first thing that happens is the safety interlock switch triggering mechanisms, which are plastic, break and it won't run at all. Since they are the latching mechanism itself it would be very hard, one in millions odds against damaging a door enough to be a problem and have the microwave still come on unless you ripped or drillled out the center perforated panel without damaging the frame, an intentional modification.

    Also a microwave oven usually works at around 2.45GHz frequency while this product only claims to detect up to 2000MHz (2.0GHz).

    After searching I haven't been able to determine what units this devise measures. It does not seem to measure in the typical watts per square meter (W/m2) . One review said "1200 in vicinity of a wireless device like the laptops in my home" which would be too high of a number to represent watts per square meter. The manual is in chinese which is of no help.

    Here are some reviews. Some people use it to test for live wires in a wall before drilling or cutting. www.dealextreme.com/p/emf-meter-for-electromagnetic-radiation-detector-56359

    Goob one of the reviewers at the link you provided wrote that the manual specs the measurement units as nW\cm2

    Years ago I lived next to an AM radio tower for a brief period, it was very annoying that the signal played over my TV and telephone, though at the time it was a landline telephone and I don't recall whether the TV was cable or OTA, probably OTA.

    Thanks Dave, I missed that. I'll be able to use this after I convert my results.

    Yes, when I was using a landline telephone the person I was talking to would always ask about the folk and country music background noise that they could hear. My VOIP got rid of that problem.

    Here is a non-satanic webpage with basic EMF information although I did enjoy reading the section on ghost hunting. I am so looking forward to tracking down the local neighborhood ghost. Now we need to find a meter for zombie hunting.
