As a side note, England has used TV Detector vans for decades to determine if a household is using a TV set without paying the annual TV viewing license fee. These vans are able to detect the RF emissions of a TV set while it is operating, as well as using other possible detection methods.

Wait a minute. Are you telling us that in England one has to pay a fee to receive over the air TV?

Just to clear up a misconception. This is my final post on this topic. Any oscillator radiates a signal. I have located radio control aircraft that have crashed by using a directional antenna and a scanner tuned to the local oscillator frequency of the receiver in the plane.
Those radios are RECEIVERS not transmitters.

The best part is I remember watching this "Young Ones" comedy while in London at the time on my rented and licensed tv:


Even the BBC has a sense of humour about it. But yeah, you have to pay up. Just how it is. Enjoy.

I purchased a TRX2 and shortly after got a SDS200. After about 3 days of monitoring, both setup the same, the TRX2 went back. The SDS200 works great for me in Macomb and St Clair MI.
