Finding sources of RF interference

Aruba is great at finding rogue APs but it does not indicate sources of wireless interference. The best thing that I know to find these sources of interference are spectrum analyzers. What are the best spectrum analyzers out on the market?
Are there any other tools other than spectrum analyzers that should be considered when trying to track down sources of interference?

Try WiSpy or Airview

For 2.4 try WiSpy or Ubiquti Airview.

I've been using AirMagnet for years, it's a great product... it's very detailed.

Re: Finding sources of RF interference

WiSpy 2.4x works well for very general RF analysis, great price. limited to 2.4Ghz only
$199 - http://www.metageek.net/

WiSpy DBx covers both bands, uses the same software as the 2.4x, more pricey but comparatively still cheap
$599 - http://www.metageek.net/

Ubiquit - never seen it but looks like a rebadged WiSpy sensor and software

AirMagnet Spectrum Analyzer, pretty pricey but TONS of info provided by the sensor, limited support for onboard WLAN nics for the general survey piece of the software
