Hello, I am temporarily in an HOA situation. I will be looking to move in the early spring to a home where I can set up my rigs.
Is there a convenient way to walk around a new residence and check the noise level / interference potential, say with an AM / shortwave rig? How accurate will it be? I know things may come and go in the neighborhood at different times, and I don't have an HF mobile at present. It would be inconvenient to set up a portable HF rig to just look at new homes. Any suggestions?

Make sure you check at around 11 PM... Or at least well into the dark hours... Listen on all bands... See if you can get a local with a mobile rig to drive you around... If you can get a rig in the area, run S-Meter Lite for a day or so... The Realtor should be able to allow that.
