In my opinion, the TriField is a handy meter to try to detect all 3 kinds of electromagnetic fields within one instrument, but is definitely not the recommended meter to measure EMFs due to serious accuracy and sensitivity issues. #1: The meter tends to be very inaccurate and read high when measuring the magnetic fields, as dirty magnetic fields trigger it to give high measurements. #2: For both the electric fields and the radio frequency fields, it is just not sensitive enough to even begin detecting the common exposure levels found in the typical home or office (it does not even begin to register anything till the field level is quite high, and thus is not very useful). Here are easy instructions to help you use the TriField Meter both to detect the EMFs, and also to help you determine what the sources actually are.
