We have used an android app and I often use NetStumbler and InSiDDer,
but these do not measure or detect what we are looking for...
At this site it mentions NetStumbler's shortcomings for measuring RF
"While a wireless site survey using the tools described above are
great, they're not great at factoring in Radio Frequency (RF)
interference from non-802.11 devices that use the 2.4 or 5.8 GHz
range. For that, you need a true Spectrum Analyzer to measure RF
activity from any radio-emitting device such as microwave ovens,
wireless cordless phones, or wireless video surveillance cameras."
Well, we have no microwaves, cordless phones or video surveillance in
the problem areas that we know of...
This site suggests using AirMagnet which I guess we might try if we
cannot find anybody that already has something.
