Trifield Meter This is the big kahuna, $180. You turn the dial and get readings from zero to 100 milligauss. You can even set it to beep at 2mG so you can walk through and find hot spots without even looking. Because of the triaxial something-or-other, you don't have to twist and turn it for an accuarte reading. That's why it's so expensive. 
Electromagnetic Field Detectors

If you suspect you have a problem, or if you are cautious, curious (or neurotic), take heart. Most houses, apartments, offices, etc, do NOT have very high fields. An EMF detector can ease your mind, and perhaps show you a few problem spots that you can correct with something as simple as repositioning furniture. (For example, moving your alarm clock to the far side of your night table, rather than keeping it right by your head.)
Cell Sensor
"Cell Sensor" This is the inexpensive device that started the whole thing. I think they should be available in drug stores cheap, so that everyone could do readings. They run $40, and look like they should be about 9.95.

EMF detectors, or gaussmeters, start at $40 and go up to $200 and $300 or more. A trifield meter is nice because you don’t have to twist and bend it to make the reading true. Check it out on your alarm clock, and on the mass of wire by your computer. Make note of the fact that the power of electromagnetic fields is exponential. This means it dissipates quickly with distance from the source.

You can start with the handy dandy, inexpensive “Cell Sensor”. It is available from many sources on the web. Google “Cell Sensor” and you’ll find several links.
Many of the sources on our Links Page also carry this model. My favorite supplier is Julian at (short for Cutting Edge Catalog). Check out his site for many other EMF detectors and other alternative health maintenance specialties.

I call the Cell Sensor my “Mickey Mouse Meter” because it is so cute and relatively inexpensive at about $40 plus shipping. However, it is extremely effective and reasonably accurate, and the model that got us started on finding and correcting the problems in our house.

Once we knew the extent of our problem, we quickly purchased two more meters. The second purchase, at about $80, was a single-axis ”EMF Field Tester” with a digital readout. It’s accurate, but you have to rotate it every few seconds to get different readings in the same spot.

Our third purchase was a “Trifield™” meter, model #100XE. Because it’s triaxial, there is no need to twist and turn this meter for a good reading. Also, you can adjust it to beep when the fields are 2mG or higher. I paid about $180 for my Trifield, but I think you can find it for less.

When you measure, keep in mind that EVERY HOME has hot spots. So don’t freak out when your appliances or the electrical wires beneath your desk are high. It’s okay to come into brief contact with high fields during your day. You want to avoid sleeping in high fields, or spending hours at your desk, for example, radiating yourself to bad health.

If you come across the high fields, move your bed, your couch, your desk or whatever. Tuck your electrical wire mess against the wall and away from your body. Don’t’ forget to keep your animals away from the high fields as well. It can’t be too good for them either.

Digital Gaussmeter This is the second one we bought. It has a digital readout, but you have to bend it three ways in every spot you measure or it could miss a high reading. $80
