    Yes it is.
    They will not have enough power to operate ANY equipment that provides a useful output, but it can be detected with a meter.
    Did you wish to power something with the electricity or just detect it?

    You can do it anyplace you want to. A high tech laboratory is not really a requirement.

    That is what a radio receiver does. I can receive radio signals from across town or from around the world any time...

    Just to be clear. What you want is the conversion of electromagnetic radiation into an electric current which can move through a conductor?

    Such a device already exists and is quite simple to make. It is known as an antenna.
