Neighbor is using an ultra-high-frequency device against us at very high decibels. It causes constant low-grade nausea and a long-lasting ringing in the ears afterwards. Problem is, it can't really be heard because its such a high-frequency. Cops have come to our house, felt the nausea and ear-ringing themselves, but refuse to do anything about it because they can't "hear" it and we have no way of recording it. My question is: Can you point me towards a device that can record high decibel sound in very high frequencies so we can show objectively that this is happening?

This has been going on for over a year now. We are often forced to sleep in a hotel on nights he decides to keep it on "high". We have been to the cops many times but they seem to be ineffective and/or uninterested. We have tried to show them that this goes beyond noise ordinance issues, and is basically a physical attack. For some reason, even though the cops themselves have felt it, they just do not take action.
This neighbor guy is a bit of a psychopath. He has some kind of beef with just about everyone in the neighborhood, but these sound devices are somehow local enough that we, his direct neighbors, are the only ones affected by it. Several of our other neighbors have been over to our house and have experienced the ill effects. When someone returns to our house after being gone, it will be off, but as soon as the neighbor notices a car in our driveway he will turn it on again. He is very vigilant and it is frightening.
Please, if you have any idea how we could record this happening in an objective way, or any other suggestions about how to get the cops to do more than they are doing, I would appreciate it immensely. Thank you.
