I lived near an ATC radar (SURAD, at RAAF Amberley). I could hear it come 
through on the clock radio beside my bed. When I drove past it, it came 
through on my car radio - even when I was playing a cassette tape.

Remember that power drops off with the square of distance and with increasing 
frequency- lying on an electric blanket that is turned on will get you very 
high E/H field exposure, probably more than any serviceable microwave...
