[RFI] RFI Question

The question below came up in a recent conversation:

If a device that generates RFI at a consistent level across the HF 
spectrum were connected to a wire that was 1/2 wavelength at a given HF 
frequency, would the level of RFI be noticeably stronger at that frequency?

The consensus was that it *should* be because the device is generating 
RF like any other RF transmitter and the wire being 1/2 wave would act 
as a dipole at the resonant frequency.

Sounds plausible, but I have a feeling it's not as simple as that.
