Well, it MAY be good news. So far, we haven't had a chance to confirm it one
way or the other. I've been kinda' busy with BPL stuff. :-)
Tom Frenaye told me today of a newer flat-screen technology that seems to be
quiet at his QTH, so it may be moving onward.
We even have a few reports of RFI from incandescent bulbs, so there have always
been neighborhood RFI threats from devices. Once upon a time, it was predicted
by some that noise from computers would destroy amateur radio. While it has
been a problem, many of us live with some computer noise on our bands.
Hams have reported RFI from their own TVs, or computers, but so far, I don't
recall a report to ARRL about RFI from a neighbor's plasma TV.
Any horror tales on this list?
