(Incidentally, that was an interesting day out as the testing was done 300 feet underground in a worked out chamber in a salt mine; to avoid picking up Radio1.)
Anyway, the instrument failed the radio emissions test. The leaflet marketing produced said "designed to meet radio emission standards".
Or rather, in marketing there is "the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth" which the marketeers know (or at the very least someone on the side of the marketeers knows), then there is the "truth" which marketing presents to the world which is "marketing's truth, as much of the truth as marketing will present to you and nothing but propaganda, twisted logic, blatent lies and sometimes a small ray of truth (which is only there to satisfy some regulatory body) which is largely obscured by everything else". At least it won't kill your cat on a friday the 13th in a dark ally after walking under a ladder (it will instead kill your cat on saturday the 14th in your neighbor's back yard).
