Well, that's *almost* right. I did something like that to find the source of a
very strong and very broadband impulse noise that peaked around 2.69 MHz.
Killing the main breaker does not turn off my UPS (Uninterruptable Power
Supply) for my telephone and fax machine, and as a result I spent a little time
thinking the noise was coming from my neighbor. Ultimately I stumbled on the
fact that my TrippLite UPS was the source of all the racket. And, of course,
it just keeps on radiating after you kill the main breaker....
Good luck to all RFI chasers...
