I had terrible RFI from fluorescent light fixtures I purchased at the local
They all have "commercial" rated ballasts "ACCUPRO AP-RC-432IP-120-1".
These things suck. I have two different style of lamps with these
fixtures, 8-foot, 4-tube strips and 4x2 foot suspended ceiling fixtures.
These fixtures all made a racket from 15M and up. I had to turn off the
lights in the shop and the shack to work any weak signal stuff on 10M and
I significantly ameliorated this by installing Corcom 10VR3 line filters in
power supply wiring to the fixtures. This took ~20dB of the noise away. I
can have the lights on now.
I don't know why the "Home" store is selling industrial/commercial light
fixtures to homeowners.
Looking back over the archives, I see I am not the only one complaining
about these ballasts.
