Thanks for the helpful suggestions for the cause and cure of my monitor RFI 
problem.  It appears the video card in my new computer is at least a large 
part of the problem.

The new computer (500Mhz Pentium 3) has a Diamond Fire GL1000 Pro in a AGP 
slot.  It was really noisy with my new NEC Multisync 19' monitor but 
acceptable with my NEC MultiSync 4FGe 15" monitor.

Because I was having problems getting RITTY to work with my new computer's 
sound card (no DMA high !!) I switched in my old Pentium 90 computer for the 
rtty Roundup contest and found no noise with either monitor.  This unit uses 
a diamond Multisync Stealth 64 card in a PCI slot.

Really need to start swapping cards to make this more than a guess but have 
been distracted my the holidays and a new tower installation so thought I 
would check back.

Again thanks for the help,

Steve  AC6DR
