  >Question: has anyone done RFI field testing of CFLs?  th e 60w
equivalent seems to be quiet.
The  n:vision  75 watt equivalent was *very* noisy to my ear (never
turned on a radio) when I turned it on.

          W1RFI reported preliminary results of RFI testing
in the article below, but I've been unable to find the final
test results in a web search:


Does anyone know where ARRL's test results have been published?

P.S.  I recently bought a 4-pack of GE CFLs at Wal-Mart,
plugged one in and listened with my Sony 2010.  Hearing an
S9+ birdie on 1830 kHz, I immediately returned it to Wal-Mart.
