I have 5 systems using various incarnations of wireless Logitech 
keyboards and mice both IR and RF with no problems with RFI in either 
direction and I run the legal limit 160 through 10 (soon to add 6 and 2)

In both the den and shop the computers and rigs are interconnected as 
well as being relatively close to the 160 and 75 antennas AND having a 
CAT5/CAT6 network running parallel to and under the 75 and 160 antennas 
for part of the distance.

The only complaint I have is wearing out keyboards although that happens 
with any make I've tried so far. OTOH spilling Vernors on one didn't 
help. <:-)  I've even rejuvinated a few by disassembling them followed 
by a good dose of warm tap water followed by air drying.
