I'm seriously considering investing in a VHF AM receiver for DFing power
line noise.  Has anyone tried either the Radio Shack 12-615 or the 12-456
for this purpose?  The prices are sure right.  I've searched the QST/QEX
index looking for articles on modifying these or other VHF AM radios to add
a signal strength meter, without success.  Also no specific how-tos, that I
have found, in the ARRL RFI Book.  Anyone already been there/done that?
