A good way to get government spooks on your trail is to start calling and
inquiring about commercial Tempest or EMF monitoring solutions... I did this
a year or so ago, and started getting some VERY interesting phone calls.

I think TEMPEST eavesdropping has very limited value with today's low

According to <http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/ih98-tempest.pdf>, neither

In fact, some TFT LCDs were found to be _more_ leaky than monitors!
