Default Tone Meter Help

I'm looking for a portable meter that would allow me to determine the frequency of a pilot tone generator as well as it's strength. Thanks!

There are cheap (relatively speaking) DVM's that have a frequency counter for audio. That would give you your tone. Then switch to AC volts and measure the level. Radio Shack used to carry one for around $40. I'm sure there are others, or blow big bucks for a Fluke.
