The extent of the fields is quite large, the 33 or 66Kv (not sure what it is) line that runs through the front of my block induces voltage in my multimeter leads out to well over 150m. I just dangle the leads vertically and walk towards the lines, it induces a few millivolts near the house, to several volts close to the lines. Trees seem to negate the effect though, the induced voltage with a tree between me and the power lines drops to near zero.
