EMF: Geiger counters measure ionizing radiation like alpha, beta, gamma, and x-rays. They do not measure elf or other electromagnetic fields from microwaves or electronic devices; for those, you need a gauss meter, which range in price from a few hundred $$ to several thousand, depending on size, sensitivity, fields to be monitored. http://www.biof.com/onlinestore/safetech.asp?redirect=yes may be start.
