Hey Craig- try 'Rogowski'............ I have used them extensively, BTW

Design a Rogowsky coil. With the right design you can go from about 200Hz to
5MHz. Needs a wideband active integrator since a Rogowsky output is
proportional to dI/di.

To answer my own question:

But only 47kHz, I'd like something like that with a couple hundred kHz....

Are there any cheap approximations of the Iprober 520 fluxgate
sensor current probe?
Maybe some sort of IC?

I did look at making one with a Hall sensor - the electronics
isn't a problem but the difficulty arises (for me at least) in
cutting the slot in a ferrite ring to put the sensor in or even
splitting the core to make a clamp. I guess it's easier if you have
access to the right tools.

Any ways, this works well for me :-)
