: The ideal collection of gear is that made by Radar Engineers. RE gear
: consists of all the tools needed to pinpoint a source at least to the pole
: if not down to the nut, bolt, bond wire or device that is the source.

I recently worked with the local power company's RFI department.  They had
everything made by RE, I have a 45 year old radio direction finder and a
short-wave radio with attenuators.  After two meetings with them they
readily admitted my equipment, techniques and knowledge of the problem was
superior to theirs.  Best of all, it was about $5,000 less.

RE equipment is nice, but over-rated and hideously expensive.
