I remember a G ham that bought a plasma TV and fought the rfi from the unit
for a couple of months but finally took it back to the dealer saying it was
"unsuitable". I do not know what class it was. I have not personally had a
plasma TV but it seems to me "caveat emptor" should be the rule here......
