Yes. But -- the bonding shorts out the buzz, so the shorter the 
conductors and the larger they are,the less buzz is left.  The second 
component of my advice is to get all power for the station from outlets 
that share the same green wire -- that is, in the same backbox. And if 
they're in different backboxes, bond those boxes together with a big 
short conductor. This further reduces the voltage that they're shorting 
out, and the noise reduction is additive.
