Of course, of course, little RF-transmitter surveillance
devices, we all know about those. But they are very low
power, and not able to induce any of the various kinds of
effects you've experienced. In fact, rather high-power
RF doesn't induce effects you can easily detect either.
Instead it may induce internal damage due to RF heating
(i.e., cooking, undetectable until it's too late), cancer,
etc., and this only with VERY high RF power concentrations,
which takes big equipment, and is very easily detected.
E.g., with an inexpensive microwave-oven leakage detector.
What I'm saying is we can easily detect this stuff.
