I haven't used the AEA myself but rumour has it that it is susceptible
to nearby RF (broadcast) interference. I use the MFJ-259 here and have been
happy with it. It's not a lab instrument but good enough for ham work. While
it's also susceptible to RF, I pass the cable through some toroids and it
helps quite a bit.
