This is page 139 of EMC for Product Designers by Tim Williams. The
relevant bit can be found here:

The book then turns to near-field scanning devices and the next topic
is "The GTEM for emissions tests".

The drawings are similar to the below ones you've found on the eevblog
forum, but worse (both the circuit and the drawing itself). The
eevblog ones are really very detailed. I wasn't able to make sense of
the magnetic probe in Tim Williams' book until I saw your drawing.

If you save the image to disk, then go to the Google Image Search, you
can use that file as a template to search for. It'll find another page
on the compliance club site:


It's the first instalment in a 7-part series of which only 5 parts are
so far finished (I'm not sure whether it's still being worked on). It
is very, very detail and is written by people in no way related to
Rigol. The person writing must have made an error (bear in mind this
is the eevblog forum after all...).
