My technician had our Fluke mt8200 on while trouble shooting a bad Cat 5 and it was lying on top of our HP Procurve.  The switch locked up and the Ruckus Zone Director next to it went into alarm state also.  Could the Fluke have created a problem with parasitic oscillations  or was this a coincidence.
