A radiation meter can detect the radiation from a microwave oven from a distance of at least 4 m.(*)
I acquired a radiation meter to check my daily life environment.
Apart from such obvious sources as microwave ovens, I detected minor radiation from various other sources, including cathode ray tubes and mobile phones. The radiation meter went into panic mode near a mobile phone (GSM) base station. DANGER, WILL ROBINSON, DANGER! !-|
