I have also had pretty good luck with the GE 2-line phones, model 2-9420B,
which may be more attractively priced.  Earlier I had hesitated to mention
this because my home is wired a little unusually phone-wise (direct home
runs rather than daisy-chain), but the fact is that while I have some
baseband RFI to computers, etc., the phones are clean.  Be sure to run them
through a surge suppressor, though, because I lost one to induced voltage
from a lightning hit a couple of years ago.

I have one sitting a foot in front of my HF linear, and it seems quite
happy there.
