Many do generate noise, but not all of them do.  Some just pick-up RF and
switch accrodingly, others don't.  It's really hit & miss which ones do

Like Jim said, use ferrites as close to the base or electronics inside the
base to choke the RF picked up or emitted.  It may take experimentation to
determine what works and what doesn't.  But that's what we hams do,

Either throw the touch lamp in the trash, or rip out the touch circuitry and
replace it with a mechanical switch.  Those thing generate an incredible
amount of garbage throughout the HF spectrum.  I won't allow one inside my
