While living in the hills above Santa Rosa CA, a 6-month-old CFL I'd put in the 
unheated laundry room expired noisily.  Although some distance from my 
antennas, it produced s9+ noise from 160m - 10m.  I was getting ready to move 
at the time, so was unable to send it off to Ed Hare for failure aalysis.    

Now that I live in Michigan*, I am "cold-testing" CFL's in outdoor lamp 
fixtures. Stay tuned.   I still have some LISN's and my "new" 8590 arrived last 
week, too.

*(Except my employer has me in _Burbank_ for a while.)
