Chances are, what you'll get is:

a.   1    Diode (probably a surplus 1N914!)
b.   1    #22 gauge wire, two feet long, red insulation
c.   1    Binding post
d.   1    0.001 ufd disc capacitor

That's about all it takes (plus a case) to build a field strength
meter -- you can make it "sexier", but the above parts are
all you need for the essential FSM (field strength meter).

Okay, here's something I've been wondering about that I'll be someone here
knows about...

I have several times seen ads reading like: "Send $10 for information and
materials to turn your digital volt meter into an RF field strength meter".

Has anyone sent for one of these? Is this legitimate, or do you get a hank
of wire and a drawing?
