Just an interesting observation here, in light of all this plasma TV-related
Odd, isn't it, that televisions are now major culprits affecting Ham radio
activities with their RFI? Only a few short years ago the situation was
reversed, & it was Ham radio that was disrupting television reception...!
"This, too, is progress!" I guess...certainly, "Time marches on..." (too bad
one couldn't procure some low-pass-filter-like device to clamp onto plasma TVs!)
Here's hoping for a happy, healthy, prosperous---and RFI-free!---2011 for one &
