'[OT] EM Field Sensing'

I'm currently working on a school project.  We're suppost to design a
simple system (simple to use rather) to detect a burnt-out bulb in a
Christmas light strand.

First idea which came to mind was sensing the EM Field produced by the
strand when a bulb is missing.  Could anyone better suited in EM fields
offer any advice?  A hall-effect sensor may be useful in this app., but
again, I've never used one (just know how they work).

Best Regards,

Vincent Deno

Look up the December 1998 Nuts and Volts magazine (Vol 19 No 12)
On page18 there is a circuit that shows how to make such a tester.  Yes it
uses the large amount of electrostatic fields that are present on an AC
line.
You can E-mail me for a scanned-in image of the circuit.
